In 2012 I can't quite remember how many times I said to myself, THIS is the final step in my transformation or that meeting Rick was the final step... At this point, I’m pretty sure that there isn't a final step and that I’ll always be changing and growing. While 2012 had lots of steps for sure, I got to live more life and experience more things since meeting him than I had in the previous 5 years. This was the year where I let someone special in, and I fell in love and started to see what I actually had been missing all of those years prior. I started to hope that I could have some of the things I couldn't ever imagine for myself (that my friends promised me were out there). Also, I learned to be content with where I was rather than hope for what was to come.
In 2012 I also got to walk through some very significant things with a few of my friends (Rick included). It was good to be the person giving instead of the person needing. I saw the expansion of my little world, welcoming some bright and shining people and two children who have added so much. I realize over and over again how special this family of people is and how very loved I am. And so safe to be myself in their presence.
Looking back, I can say that 2012 was the happiest year of my life. Xo, Sharon Marzonie
