The past year has in many ways gone by so incredibly fast.
My kids are taller, we’re all a year older.
I closed a painful chapter in my life and walked into a healthy, new life that I love.
I met a wonderful man & a best friend that would change my life forever.
I had zero time to blog, but I have a job I love, and I am trying to eek out time to begin blogging again because I feel like part of me is missing when I don’t write.
I think the part of the year that I love the most, is looking back and seeing God work things out.
In the quiet times when we have no idea how an impossible situation will be resolved.
In noisy times where we just need five minutes to ourselves so we don’t feel crazy.
In the painful moments where it doesn’t feel like hurt could ever be healed.
He has shown up and handled it. Handled it when I could not, and gone before me not to pave a perfect straight road, but to remind me that He’s got this and I am His daughter.
And I have learned that I can survive those tough times that are no fun, and really appreciate the seasons of quiet. That is new for me because I fee like I’ve always been in a hurry to get to the next thing.
I used to make a New Year’s Resolution each year, or choose a word.
I have decided to put zero pressure on myself and just enjoy having another year, more time and living a peaceful (yet crazy/loud/busy) life with my family.
Here are a few things I loved working on this year, and I hope this finds you blessed, at peace, and seeing the good. Because it is everywhere and wants us to find it.
No matter what.
So here we go, a new year, and some of my favorite stuff from last year….
stay true to you friend & know that you are so loved!
