Endings and New Beginnings

Life is a series of beginnings and endings. This picture symbolizes that so well, don't you think? This is Mr. Thorns and I on our wedding day, nearly 20 years ago. We were just kids. His grandparents were not well enough to attend, so between the ceremony and reception we visited them. By our second anniversary they were both gone.

This is Christmas 2008, all of my children. End of the year, beginning of a new one. End of the Blessed Mother's pregnancy and beginning of the life of Our Saviour.

And another ending/beginning is moving. This is a picture of the day we moved The Oldest to an apartment. You know the place, in NJ, where I keep getting lost :).

This one is a new beginning. I have submitted my first post to Catholic Mothers Online. I am not sure when it will run, I will let you know when it does. My first post talks about endings and new beginnings, so it does fit here with the theme.

And on that note, if I am absent from my usual haunts online, it is because of all those changes we are facing in our lives. But, I will be back, so don't forget about me. And I will try to keep posting :).

I hope you will keep coming back because I just visited and followed from FF Over 40.
Thank you for visiting and following me and for your very kind comments.
I am a Catholic Mama too and a Mom-Mom to 11. Have a blessed week and I hope you will visit often and I will do the same.

What a beautiful family, and I love your wedding photo. It seems like yesterday, doesn't it? We coming up on 18 years.
