I woke up this morning to the shocking reality that *gasp* it is the last day of the year! I don’t know why this year passed so quickly. Why do they keep slipping by faster and faster??
At the end of last year, I dreamed of being able to hold our little one in our arms by the end of 2010. Well, it’s come and gone and we are no more parents today than we were 365 days ago. So, all I can do is cling to the fact that God is kind.
Without further ado, let’s look back at each month of 2010 solely represented with just one photo.
This will be my sixth year to do this:
2005–was my third year in Taiwan, and I started bloggingJanuary: Amanda went back to Texas to meet our newest nephew
2006–my sister got married and my brother came to Taiwan
2007–I moved to a new city, and my cousins came to visit
2008–I met the love of my life; we dated, got engaged, and then married . . . it was perhaps the most perfect year of my entire life. :)
2009–our Taiwanese wedding, our first anniversary, and our first full calendar year married
February: Chinese New Year
March: Daily life as normal (note the use of gloves to eat messy food) :D
April: A Happy Wedding!! We get to officially welcome Cindy to the Wu family
May: We go to two MORE weddings!
June: Amanda’s mom comes to Taiwan!! Wuhoo!!
July: We introduce Mom to as much of Taiwan as we possibly can
August: Gilby gets bit by a mean, nasty dog, :(
September: Lawrance turns 30 and has his 1st Birthday Party EVER!
October: We get to meet Melody, our newest niece!
November: Lawrance preaches for the first time
December: We celebrate our third Christmas together in Taiwan.
Oh, how only one photo a month doesn’t capture everything that happens!! I think we went to a total of 7 or 8 weddings last year and I got to go to Japan for a few days for a conference, we spoke in public multiple times, Lawrance started serving weekly with a missionary in another town, we changed churches in order to increase our ministry, and so on goes the list. We are blessed!!
Happy New Year from our Wu Home to yours!!
