I couldn't resist posting this pic of ains. Chris just sent it to me! She is getting so big... seriously, melt my heart into a million pieces!
Last year on January 2
I posted my New Year's resolutions...it was as simple as this: blogging more, painting more, weekly date nights, cooking more, changing who I am daily. Dying to flesh & sin.
Hm, I cooked maybe a teeny bit more...it comes in phases. BUT I started meal planning!! It helps!!- which a few of you asked for an example week of meals and I will post one soon!
I definitely painted more and started working on a few new things for my art career!
Changing.... still a work in progress.
And blogging more! Who knew? What a journey last year was!
You know, I was thinking...there have been points in my life where I was confident I would never ever laugh again.
I can remember one of those times... and then months and months later....I was driving home from the store and burst out laughing. And I remember saying outloud, " wow there it was"- true genuine laughter....and healing.
And that all made me stronger.
Then we lost Addison this year and as hard and awful and terrible as that was. I was stronger.
My sweet friend ashley sent me a quote this week about "beautiful people do not just happen"...and it made me think, a lot of the most beautiful people I know, have been through the most.
So 2012.... I am ready for what you have for me.
