I can’t believe that 2019 is almost over. This past year has brought so much change into our lives. I went back to work more then I had planned. Connor started school and is loving it. Raymond finally got on a schedule again after many years of just working crazy times. I started my instagram and this blog. Which has helped me grow as a mom, wife and woman. We got our very first new boat. We have learned that Toy Story is life in our house with Connor. After 15 1/2 years with Abby we had to say goodbye just a few days ago. We are still trying to get adjusted to our home without her here. I sure there is more I am forgetting but these are the things that stick out to me the most.
2020 is looking to be another great year for us. I can’t wait to see where this road will bring me with my blog. I pray that I can keep writing things that mean something to me and can help others. I ‘m looking forward to seeing how much Connor will grow. He is learning so much already. He’ll be fully talking soon and we’ll finally understand what he is really saying haha. We’ll finally have time to do more family outings. Maybe even a new puppy is in the plans for us. Whatever it will be I know that it will work out because we give it to God.
With Christmas Eve being today it just has me thinking about how even thought this is Connor’s third Christmas, this is his first that he hopeful get excited about it. So far he has enjoyed all the lights and the few gifts he has gotten. The excitement on his face will surely make this our best Christmas yet. We don’t get to spend every Christmas with Raymond because of his job, but this year we do. Having my little family together is just what I asked for. It’s not about the gifts under the tree or whats in the stockings. It’s about watching the joy on Connor’s face, spending time together, and remember that this season is about Christ and his birth.
My wish for each and everyone of you is to find peace in this season. Spend time with those you love. Wrap yourself with the love of family and friends. I pray that those of you going through hard times will see that light and know that it soon will get better with the power of God in your life. The holidays aren’t always bright and shiny like we wish it would be. But know that Christ sees you are will help guide you if you just ask him too.
When we are at church this evening and they turn out all the lights, we’ll sing “Silent Night” over candle light. The Peace and Joy that will over come our church and ours hearts will be there to show us that this is reason for today and tomorrow.
“Have yourself a merry little Christmas. Let your hearts be light. From now on our troubles will be out of sight.” From our family to yours!!
