Happy New Year!

Here’s hoping for a happy, healthy 2010! I can’t believe how time flies. I find myself sentimental these days. Is it the holidays? Is it because Malia is growing up so fast? Is is because my mom is battling cancer? I think it’s all of the above.

We spent a usual night at the Ceane household. Pizza for dinner. Dancing with Malia and the usual bedtime ritual. One thing that stood out for me was a conversation I had with Malia while eating dinner. She just looked at me and said, “So mom, how was your Christmas?” I turned and said, “Thanks for asking, it was wonderful. How was yours?” She replied with, “Mine was terrific. Did you like your shirts?” I said, “I love them.” Then we proceeded to eat and she continued to watch her Backyardigans show. It was nice that she just thought to ask me such a nice question. she really wanted to know and it felt good that she took the time to ask and also ask if I liked my present. I felt acknowledged and it felt good. So I wanted to write that conversation down so I wouldn’t forget it. Even though we didn’t do anything special or amazing for New Year’s, that made me feel special for some reason. I love her so much!

Happy New Year!
