I have to say, I’m one of the many, many people who are in full agreement that 2015 was a terrible year.
But at the same time, with all of the negative that I could point out, 2015 also brought…
It’s easy to get bogged down in the mess of what was bad and not look at all that was good. Being in Alabama visiting family for the last two weeks brought a bit of rest, relaxation and refreshment for me. I got more sleep than I usually get. I took some time away from my computer for the Holidays. I spent some time with my boys. I wrote. I started on a new project (more on that to come soon!).
We can’t move forward…I can’t move forward…by holding on to the past and what was this past year. YES. 2015 was frankly one of my worst years. But it was also one of the best in so many ways. The new year is a blank page with new spaces to fill out. I intend to make it worthy of the space I’ve been given.
God often breaks us down completely in order to build us back up the right way in the ways that he wants. I’m terrified and excited and eager to see what he has in store for our family this next year.
And I’m looking forward to continuing to share here with all of you who pop over every day to read what’s going on with us.
Happy 2016, friends.
