Summin' it up

This year has been a stressful one, a year of changes...some good, some not-so-much:
  • Testing
  • Parole hearing (in the case of my brother's killer)
  • Wedding
  • 20th high school reunion
  • Repairs on the house---multiple times in multiple months
  • Friend changes
  • Dr. visits--my foot, Daniel's eyes and PT, regular dentist, eye and checkups
  • Co-op and co-op ending
  • JP's promotion and subsequent change in schedule for us 
  • etc., etc. 

Now, don't get me wrong, we've had some great times this year.   The best thing about having a blog is being able to look back over the year and see all the wonderful things we did and accomplished.  

But I've been thinking a lot over the past few days about how I really want 2013 to be different. (I'm sure I felt that way last year, too)    I don't want 2013 to be defined in my mind as "stressful", "wearying".  

I want this year to be a year of change in me not just around me. 

It really struck me that this is the last year I can actually say "I'm a 30-something mom...."   In 2014, I'll turn the big 4-0!  As I was talking over this new year with my husband, I mentioned this to him. I was hoping for words of comfort, but he offered me none.  Bummer!  

I've seen a lot of people picking out a word of  focus for their year.  Well, if you know me, you'll realize I'm not a person of few words.  So, I'll be sharing soon the 3 words that I picked for my focus this year.  I'm really excited and looking forward to what this year will hold for me and my family.  

 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
Jeremiah 29:11
