Year End



The year at its end.  Literally.

The last few moments of 2015 have passed.  Wow! Another year come and gone.

I’ll admit, there are some things I’m glad to be done with; and then there are others I wish I could have drawn out a bit longer.  All of them, both the good times and the bad, are tucked away within my mind, within my heart.

The difficult days have shaped me into the woman I am today.  They’ve made my faith stronger.  They’ve enabled me to enjoy my good days even more.  To appreciate every good and perfect gift God has given me.  To truly be thankful for every smile, every hug, every opportunity to give love and to be loved.

So as I say goodbye to this year, I will welcome the next.  I will look forward to it.  I will face it with expectation, even the uncertainties that lie ahead.  For I know that at the end of it all, something good will come.

And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.  Romans 8:28




I'm a wife, a mom, and a mia (my own special word for grandma). You may or may not be these things, and that’s okay. Chances are we're still a lot alike. I’m certain we share some of the same struggles and ponder many of the same questions. We're busy and we're tired -can I get an amen? Yet, here we are, trying to live meaningful lives, positively impact those around us, and add a little sunshine wherever we go. But it’s not easy, is it? We mess up. Life gets tough. We find ourselves in need of a friend. Someone to encourage us, stand by us, and speak truth into us. To remind us we are not alone. That, sweet sister, is where I hope to come in - not with all the answers (I’m still searching for some myself), but with a genuine concern for you and a desire to walk alongside you on this incredible -and oftentimes arduous- journey called life.
