"I've learned a lot this year.. I learned that things don't always turn out the way you planned, or the way you think they should. And I've learned that there are things that go wrong that don't always get fixed or get put back together the way they were before. I've learned that some broken things stay broken, and I've learned that you can get through bad times and keep looking for better ones, as long as you have people who love you." - Jennifer Weiner
I think most of us are in agreement that 2016 was the absolute worst. . .
Allow me to rewind to the first of January when I wrote my first post of the year. I closed with this sentence, "Here's to 2016 and the many lessons ahead of me," and honestly when I said this I didn't really think this year would be as troubling as it was. There are several things I never expected to happen this year, such as, losing my father or struggling so much with all three of my children now being in school rather than at home with me. I'm a completely different person than who I was at the beginning of the year.
