Well this year has been quite eventful! I had the joyus arrival of my beautiful baby boy, Lucas and the terrible heart wrenching news of my nephews leukemia, only to be brought up again by the outpouring of support around the entire WORLD! I can say, comming out of 2010, I have changed for the better and I will never be the same. I started as Mandi, and came out a Mommy. I opened up and I have spoke with people I never thought I would be speaking too and have been touched by stories that I had previously never opened my eyes to. I have no idea what is in store for the years ahead but I know after 2010 I will be spending a little less time on myself and a little more time on others. I am thankful for this and grateful that I will be little less ignorant for this next trip around the sun.
