Peace Out 2012...Welcome 2013


No offense, 2012, but I'm glad you're done.  You had your fun moments, but there were a few too many trials for my taste.  I will always embrace the ways God is stretching me and pushing me, but struggles are what they are, and that is hard.  Don't get me wrong; I was blessed beyond belief, but that doesn't change the fact that at times it was just straight up hard.
2012 could be best be described as a roller coaster; one minute you were sweet and the next, bitter.  You were a year of trials and triumphs; celebrations and goodbyes.

Last year was an absolute whirlwind of emotions, which is not something I handle very well and too much of the time, I felt as though I was on autopilot.  I took on too much this year and it showed up in so many ways.  The least of which was this blog. I missed it, but didn't have enough energy or desire left over to do anything about missing it.

My pledge to myself, my husband, and above all, my God, is to be still.  Not physically, but mentally and emotionally. I pledge to embrace peace and quiet, but also be open to what God has in store for 2013. I pledge to be present in everything I do and to be thoughtful.

I pledge to live 2013 to the fullest.

As far as resolutions go, I suppose the above could be considered resolutions, but I plan on working on some true "resolutions" or goals that I'll post in the next few days.

So with this, I wave goodbye to a year of growth and say hello to a new year of God's mercies and teachings.

Happy New Year, everyone!
