Don't Look Back in Anger

One of my all time favorite bands is Oasis, and one of my favorite songs by them is "Don't Look Back in Anger". I highly recommend checking out this truly awesome band when you get a chance.

It's almost a brand new year, and 2011 will be starting on a very.different note than years past. For one thing, my.standard resolutions have, for the most part been resolved. Frankly,  I am at a loss of what to possibly whine about for the next year.

So I am resolving to return to my roots.

I will blog about motherhood. And wifedom. Homemaking. Crafting. Cooking. Going back to basics.

I can truly say that I am happy. Post op, I've had the courage to say what I've been meaning to say but didn't for fear of offending someone else. I've shed anger, bitterness and resentment like a snake shedding its skin. While some might think that there is a healthy dose still there, I think that they are mistaken and I have found a modicum of peace and contentment.

As Matthew 6 states, we have nothing to worry about if we have faith. God will provide, and He hasn't failed me yet. Sometimes its a round about way to get there, but it eventually it all works out.

Once upon a time, I never thought I would marry. It seemed as if I was destined to be alone. I prayed for a husband and I've been blessed for 8 years. I needed to be in the desert to appreciate the ocean.

Once upon a time, I was told that my dream of motherhood was never to be. I may not have given birth to my son but that doesn't make him any less of my child.

Once upon a time, I was convinced I.would always be fat and out.of shape. All it took was a little surgery to get rid of humpy and I am instantly much skinnier & less edgy.

The surgery has allowed me the time to think, and put in perspective. I am.still completely powerless in my current situation, and that has given me a precious gift: the gift of time and perspective.

Grateful for the chance to start anew, and not look back in anger.

I needed to.climb that mountain to appreciate the view from the top.
