It's been a pretty rough year, on the surface.
My Dad was diagnosed with multiple myeloma.
We had to move suddenly.
My husband lost his job in September.
Gabe didn't stay unemployed very long.
We moved into a lovely neighborhood, and even succeeded in moving our cat.
Dad has been on the receiving end of SO MANY MIRACLES.
Tonight, we are all going to write down our prayers and hopes for 2014 and lock them up in a box.
Next New Year's Eve, we are going to open our box and see what wonders God has worked in our lives!
I'm also (finally) going to start a "beautiful moments" jar, where everytime something beautiful happens to Gabe, Ella, or me, we will write it down on a strip of paper and put it in the jar. Then, next New Year's Eve we can look back on all the beautiful moments!
I have so many things I want to accomplish this year.
I want to be a better Christian.
A better wife.
A better Mom.
I want to start taking pictures professionally.
2014, here we come!
