2010 is the last year in which I will simply be known as Christina (or Tina), 2011 brings with it a new name and identity - one which I will keep for the rest of my life, regardless of the path my journey takes...Mother!
Now it's onto an even more exciting year and a new chapter in our lives, hello 2011! We are anxiously awaiting the birth of our son, Ryland Carter Malek, in April and my parents will move to TX by the end of the year. I think this year my new years resolution will be to try and let go of my expectations. I know with a new baby in our lives that my house will not always be clean, things will not always go my way nor will I get to do all the things I want. There will be times I'll be overwhelmed and many sleepless nights. God grant me patience, for I know I need more than I have and I will be tested. I will have my failures and successes and many lessons learned; but it will all be worth it for there will be a whole new take on wonder, a whole new meaning of love and an amazing future to experience with my family.
