Don't just live in the world

March 2011 to March 2012

March 22nd, 2012 | Posted by Amy Boughner in Personal

On March 25, 2011 the government lost a confidence vote in the House of Commons. On March 26 theĀ Governor General issued the writs of election.

Less than one year ago. It’s been less than a year.

On May 2 the party I work for made history by attaining the status of official opposition – something we had never done before. In August our leader announced he had a second cancer and died a few weeks later. I travelled to visit my mother and grandfather in Regina while the funeral took place in Toronto.

This year I’ve thought of leaving my job to become a stay at home mother, I’ve dealt with stress and exhaustion and fat. This year we bought a house. We saw a mild winter and an early spring. This year I have taken steps towards my goals and spent a lot of time trying to figure out my family life. I have watched my daughter grow from baby to kid.

This year I dealt with neck and back issues that left me on bedrest, I watched my daughter suffer through pneumonia.

This year I am making progress, I am keeping the faith and I am being tough on my own behalf.

This year I am acting with love, hope and optimism when I can.

This year has never given me a break.

This year has been so very short and has encompassed two or three lifetimes.
