I feel a bit overwhelmed by the idea of another year gone by. As I think about 2008 my heart skips a beat...the boys have grown so much, my house is more of a home, I am more in love with my adorable husband... what a wonderful year 2008 has been to me.
Today I have had a little bit of time to really think about who I am becoming as a Christian woman, a wife, a mother, a friend, a daughter , a sister, an aunt, a sister in law...and I think I am doing pretty OK. I have found that over the years I have been a tough critic of myself- not really cutting myself many breaks away from being perfect. However, as I look back now at all that has gone on over the past year I have taken hold of many opportunities . I have been brave. I have been present. I have tried my best... AND that is good enough for me.
As I sip my warm cup of coffee in a craft room that my adorable family created for me out of love, my boys sleep soundly wrapped in blankets made by their adoring mother, I hear the fire crackling in the fireplace which my adorable husband made to keep his family warm... I look with extreme excitement at the year to come! What adventures lay in store! What love I have to share!
May your new year be full!
