Happy New Year!!!

2010 - Wow, where does the time go? Wasn't it just yesterday that I was standing at the front door waiting to go to my first day of kindergarten? Wasn't it just yesterday that I was 10 years old and so excited that I was finally 2-digits (my dad's rule) so I could get my ears pierced? Wasn't it just yesterday, I had all the excitement and nervousness of a young lady who was getting ready to make the big move and attend high school? Wasn't it just yesterday that I was picking out colleges and hanging with my friends just being silly? Wasn't it just yesterday that I met the man of my dreams and married him? Wasn't it just yesterday that I gave birth to our first amazing child, a boy? Wasn't it just yesterday that I was enthralled to be delivering a baby girl? Wasn't it just yesterday...
As I look back at all the years of our lives, truly God has been so faithful to me and our family - He has carried us through so much and continues to love us and mold us to what He wants us to be! It is my prayer that for 2010, we fall so much more in love with our Savior, Jesus, and that we would have the desire to boldly speak His name to those who don't know Him.
Life is truly a gift and each new day and year is a blessing from God. Not one of us is guaranteed another minute to live. It is my prayer that when I have finished the race that has been set before me by God, that He will say "Well done, thou good and faithful servant"
Here's to an amazing new year of loving more, organizing more, cleaning more, living more healthy, and loving our Savior more deeply than we have ever known possible for it is by Him each new year is a possibility!!
