A Year in Review {Blog Post Style}

A year of some of my favorite blog posts from 2011! Enjoy. 

This was actually really fun to look back on the year and see how God has worked in our lives. He is SO good! He has good plans for me and good plans for you! (Jeremiah 29:11)

I loved this post because it was honest. Looking back almost a year later I am so happy to say things are so much different for us now. Praise God! The reason I love this post so much? The support you all sent my way. It really blessed me. 

2011 was a monumental year in diagnosing and treating my son. It's been a long journey. This post seems like light years ago. Hard to believe it's only been a year since I started thinking about re-evaluating his needs. 

Oh I love this post! First of all, I love it because you loved it too. 38 comments are a milestone around The Shoebox. Second, I love it because it captures my son's amazing attitude about life, people, and a lesson about being yourself!

April: My SITS day! Need I say more? 

This post is one of my faves because it marks a turning point for my oldest. We finally began to get some answers. The post I wrote in February sparked some comment love that motivated me to seek professional opinions again. We got some answers! Praise God! Once again, the blogsphere has shown how it can be such a positive outlet for mothers. 

This post really makes me LOL. It's such a picture of my life. 

A special day in the journey of treatment for my son. A day I realized that we are the one in the driver's seat, and no one knows what he needs better than me! I am his mother and his teacher! I realized I am strong and no Dr. is going to tell me otherwise!

Sometimes we have to admit our weaknesses to be strong again. It felt good to admit mine. 

I may or may not be a hoarder? You decide. 

2010 put my marriage to the test. This time last year I was in a really dark place with my marriage. But, God brought us through it! I praise Him in knowing He's stronger than me. 

November: Breathe 
Breathe, is post #5 in a series I began writing this year about my past. They are hard to write. But so therapeutic. Every time I hit publish on one of these posts, I feel a weight immediately release. This one was especially hard to write. 

December: Finally Free! 
I've let go of a lot of insecurities! It feels good to be me.

Well, there you have it. My 2011 cocktail. 
It's no wonder I can't find my niche in the blogosphere!

It sounds like quite the year. I need to go back and catch up on some of your earlier posts!

One of the really great things about blogging is the chance to look back over the year(s) and read posts you might have forgotten :) Time flies so fast that I like to take some time to reflect!
