It's Time for New Adventures
Happy New Year! It has quietly turned into 2011 here in our home. (I actually missed ringing in the new year at midnight since my nasty cold had me climbing into bed early.) I must be sick if I chose bed over chocolate fondue, champagne and games with my family.
I want to thank all my friends and family (and some new blog friends) for reading my blog over the last six months. I hope to become more intentional and regular in the new year.
2010 was full of highs and lows.
Highs: Mike got a promotion, T.J. graduated from high school and started college at Whitworth University, Allie got to go to Europe for school & travel, we sold our yellow house and bought our current one in Illinois, I made some new friends,went to Disney World & MGM with the girls, saw Beth Moore live, and MITCH & AMY GOT MARRIED!!
Lows: I had to leave the town, church, house and friends I love, I was sick for three months, Sarah had a miserable experience at her new school, and we had two car thefts; golf clubs & GPS stolen on Mike's trip, our replaced GPS taken LAST NIGHT out of my car.
Our new year began with a police officer knocking at our door at 6:00 a.m.this morning to inform us that our car had probably been broken into and yep, it was the latest burglar who steals, then leaves the car door open as his "signature". Happy New Year?...I am trying to be more "glass-half-full" since my husband calls me the Anti-Polly (remember the movie Pollyanna and her glad game?) So, I am thankful my car wasn't hurt and our home wasn't broken into.
In 2011 I hope to focus on all the blessings God has provided to our family and no matter what remember He is good, all the time. So now it's another countdown until I'm off on another adventure-back to Washington for a 18 months! More details to follow...
