And a Happy New Year!

2014. What a year it’s been!

Thank you to everyone who has been a part of my life this past year. Thank you for your continued support and encouragement, and for believing in the power of shared stories and the written word. Thank you for being on this journey with me. Happiness is best when shared, and I am happy to share mine with all of you!

In my first year of blogging, I have featured the stories of 14 incredible children in my 'Tulip Tales' series, and have already posted updates on two of them. In sharing your stories, many of you have expressed admirable honesty in the fact that it can be a struggle to find peace, happiness, and the "good" amid the challenges of raising a child with special needs. I have been touched by your willingness to share such personal stories, and I admire your courage. These 'Tulip Tales' usually make me smile and cry all at once, and inwardly breathe a sigh of relief that there are lots of moms who have the same feelings I do. I have been inspired and educated by doing this series, as I know others have as well. My goal is to continue reaching out to families and featuring the stories of remarkable children who have so much to teach us.

2014 was beautiful and life changing, but a new year brings new beginnings. I look at my shiny new agenda with 2015 embossed on the cover. These blank pages hold so much possibility and I am excited by the opportunity to embrace new challenges and experience more growth.

I feel blessed and content and happy to be sharing my story with those who want to listen.

I am grateful for all of the amazing moments this year gave me. Here is a look back at some of my favourite little moments from 2014:

2014 will be hard to beat, but I think 2015 is up for the challenge!
I wish a very Happy New Year to all of you! Love, Julie
