Time for Reflection

It has been A LONG time since I posted to my blog.  I think this is going to be one of my New Year's more!

Every year at this time I like to take a look back at the year and see where I've been.  I really don't know where to start.  I had a major change in careers this year.  Craig switched jobs again this year, however it is in his field and (hopefully) it is more stable.  The kids are growing up way to fast.  Dalton is in 6th grade and it makes me sad to think that he is almost as tall as I am.  Megan is becoming way too independent and too smart sometimes.

We were able to open our home to a new 'family member' this summer.  A baseball player from California lived with us while he played for the local baseball team.  Brock was a joy to have with us.  Although after looking back we probably annoyed him with all of our stories, questions, and etc.  I wonder if other host families worry about their players when they go out at night?  Sorry Brock just me being a mom! ;-)

We have lost two more young people this year.  Too young to leave us but we never know when God is going to call upon us.  We will miss them and miss their infectious smiles.

So what is going to happen in 2011?  Who knows?  I do know that I am trying to make some resolutions that I can make attainable.  I am going to dive into the Good Book more.  I am going to get out, meet, and make some new friendships.  I am going to reflect more on my days and how they affect those that mean the world to me.

So to end.....Happy New Year to all!  May your year ahead be filled with joy, happiness, and many blessings.
