Just had to start this post with a pic of me and my hubby. New Years Eve was our 7th wedding anniversary. We were married December 31, 1999. That year the world was supposed to end. We laugh because the other date that had everyone all afraid of that year was the anniversary of our first date which we celebrate each year-09/09/99. All the computers were gonna crash on that day. We used to joke that we were destined to be doomed ;) When I sat down to update my calendars yesterday, I just couldn't believe it was time to do this already. At least I remembered to change my calender, I usually toss the old one before I realize I didn't transfer birthdays onto the new one, then I have to call everyone to update. So in one little aspect I am ahead of the game! YAY! Now I still am focusing on what to make as a new years wish. Don't make resolutions because - bad me... I don't keep them. So a wish seems more realistic. Of course there is the old stand by, eat healthier, exercise more. But I think I want to stretch a little deeper this year. I want to make more time to read, I want to get more involved with a bible study. I help out with different activities MOPS, AWANA, volunteer at the kids schools but I want to find something that I can truly be passionate about. so that is something I plan to ponder on just a bit more.
Our year in review: I cannot be as detailed as Tina - what a good memory she has!!
This year started as a really good one - we were able to finish a few house projects that we have wanted to do since we bought the house, we were able to connect with some family members we haven't seen in awhile, Ethan started kindergarten, Elena started preschool and Jason started middle school, made some new friends, and lost some very dear loved ones. The end of this year has been a tough one for our family but through it I think a different, closer family is taking its place. My husband has come to church with me for a month straight without me asking him! THAT is what I am most excited about.
So for this new year my main focus is to keep my family close, to laugh and love everyday. To be thankful for what God has blessed us with and for each new day! HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
