"It's been a while..."

It’s been over a year since my last post and I thought about deleting my blog altogether… I mean really, who blogs anymore?! However, I decided to keep it and randomly post as I feel the desire to do so. The year that was 2012 was quite a year. I’m blessed beyond measure and unable to articulate in words how truly thankful I am for the life I’ve been given. As I just celebrated the turn of the New Year with a beautiful kiss from my hubby, I reflect on what was. The year 2012 was not a year without some heartbreak. Brad and I found out we were expecting in November which ended with an ectopic pregnancy and a surgery to remove my fallopian tube. It was quite jarring, but I know that I serve a God who is bigger than my circumstances, so I trust His timing and will….of course we’re praying that His will includes more children for us! We also know that His plans are better than our own.

2012: We celebrated a promotion for Brad, Selah's 2nd birthday, a 5 year anniversary, and just the blessing that is the ability to walk, talk, feel, see, hear and live. 

Brad and I both work with incredible people. We couldn’t be more thankful for the colleagues that we’ve been surrounded with. I am thankful for jobs when so many are unemployed. 

We have awesome families. What a blessing to come from parents who are married 35 and 41 years; great examples from which to draw and look to. We have awesome siblings, in-laws, nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, grandparents, and cousins. WoW! Why us? I am thankful for loving family members when so many are lonely. 

As I look to 2013, I pray that I am more focused on others. Oh do I have a tendency to focus on ME! I know I wasn’t created for ME….I was created for more than serving myself. In fact, I was created to serve a Living God who loves and cares for YOU! I of course have a bucket list for 2013, but I’ll spare you.  

Happy New Year!
