Good-bye 2011: Happy New 2012!

I always catch myself reminiscing on New Year's Eve.  I've spent New Year's Eve many special ways.  Growing up NYE was spent with family watching Dick Clark and the ball drop.  As a young adult, NYE was spent with my girlfriends making hilarious memories that I wouldn't trade for anything in this world!  In fact, I've even spent New Years in Vegas with some of my best girlfriends. 

Last year was a special NYE because I was pregnant and to be honest, I fell asleep well before the midnight hour.  This year, Dustin and I chose to spend NYE very low key, simple, and with our little boy.  William is now asleep, and I'm looking forward to what 2012 will bring our family! 

As I think back over this year, many memories have been made.  Dustin turned 30; Jorja Leigh Brewer was born; William Michael Tucker changed my heart forever; BAMA secured a spot in the BCS National Championship Game

However, with every year that passes I have to ask myself, "What lesson have I learned?"

In 2011 I have learned the lesson of a mother's love.  I never knew what all my mother did for me until I had William.  I know how much I love my little boy and would do anything in this world for him!  That is how my mother feels about me... 

A mother doesn't enjoy changing dirty diapers, cleaning up messes, cooking every night after working all day, laundry, cleaning house, going to bed late and getting up early, or even doing the dishes BUT she does them because that's what a mother does; she takes care of her family because NOTHING compares to a mother's love!  (except of course a Father's love, and that's just a whole different blog...coming soon of course)

Where in the world would we be without our mothers? 

I'm now going to close the computer and ring in the New Year with my family.
