I'm a redeemed child of God and the momma to four vivacious daughters. I'm passionate about finding hidden blessings in the trials of life, living it out in an honest and open way, while encouraging those around me to believe in better.


happy new year {2010}

Can’t believe it’s been a year since this photo!  My how my girls are growing …

And I seriously can’t believe it’s 2010.  Is that cliche?

2010.  I didn’t even realize it was the start of a whole new decade.  A decade.

Does it seem like I’m in a bit of denial mode?

Man, to think what we’ve all been through in the last 10 years.  I’ve gotten married, had 3 children, bought … reinvented … and then sold … a business, started another business, throw some personal trials in there … and whew! what a decade.

As difficult as some parts of it has been though, I don’t think I’d take anything back for a minute.  Every situation, whether good or bad … has made me the woman I am today.

Don’t get me wrong, I still have a long way to go … but I honestly think God is pleased with how I’m turning out.  I know He’s not finished with me though … and I can’t wait to see what else is in store.

I’ve been reading some of my older posts lately, and came across this one … I love this.  I love to see how I’ve grown.

I have, in fact, come miles in my ability to put down “stuff” and partake in life.  In God’s word … in hearing Him … in my family.

I think my goal for this year … actually, I know my goal for this year … is to focus on myself.  To be better about taking care of myself.  I’m doing great at taking care of others and feeling good about it.  Feeling a balance with it … but now it’s time for me to add myself into that equation.  And here’s the key … not feel guilty about it.

Alrighty then … I’ve rambled here.  I’d only meant to post a photo and say …

I wish you all the happiest of happy new year’s.  May 2010 bring you untold blessings.

    I think that’s a fabulous resolution, my friend. I hope that includes letting other people take care of you (when you need it!), too. *hugs* I was trying to come up with my word of the year — one to recall and keep me on track for my broader intentions, and I think that word is going to be LISTEN. Listen to my loved ones, my heart, my God. In order to stay in the moment and focus on what’s important! Happy 2010 to you!

    and tell tay from me.. no matter how old she is, she is still such an important part of the “four-some”, her sisters, and adds that special touch to every picture taken with her very own non-like any other sisters, and tay rocks the kasba… front and center!!!

    Sounds as though you are having a great time and reflecting on what you have achieved and what is yet to come. I couldn’t agree more that you need to make you first so that you can be the best you can be. I am ready to make some changes as well. Enjoy your time with the girls and the sun!
