Happy New Year!
It's time for the annual reflections and new aspirations blog :-)
I'll be brief, I promise.
2012 gave us a new home, a new duty station and more appreciation for each other. We now have a 4 year old, a 3 year old, a 1 year old and a new baby. It gave us the opportunity to discover more hopes and dreams for each other and for our kids. 2012 blessed us in many ways.
As the sun rose the first time this year I have the thrill and excitement as every new year brings.
With Josh's rapidly approaching deployment we will be taking our time to enjoy the down times, the quiet times and the silly times. Mostly just trying to focus on our little family. No longer being distracted by apps on our smartphones. They will be left on the table where phones are supposed to be, left idle until it rings.
In 2013 we anticipate several wonderful things. Aidan turns five and will be starting school in the fall. (where did our little Bebo go?)
The 4 Tabblets and I will take on the world by making a trip stateside to visit family during Josh's absence.
It will be the first year in 5 years that I won't be pregnant!! (That still has yet to sink in for me)
This is the year my energy will be renewed and my self conscious will become confident again.
2013 will be the year we learn to sacrifice in places that we haven't yet and bloom in areas that we've dreamed of.
Here's to hope, prosperity, love and perseverance. Here's to 2013!
May it be bountiful in it's riches, full of God's love and spontaneous in it's laughter.
