Happy New Year

by adustyframe ~ December 31st, 2012

What a year 2012 was for us.

Lee’s job became more stable. We were able to start paying off some of our debt accumulated from 7 years of basically no income (yikes!).

We were able to get a newer more dependable car.

We did some fun things and had some special getaways.

We spent time together just enjoying our family. I think there’s nothing like a huge trial to help you appreciate the very little things. It also helps us to not complain about things that really don’t matter.

We got some work done in our ugly yard–it’s not finished yet but we made progress.

I’m pretty sure for me the best of 2012 is finding out that our 2013 is going to bring an addition to our family. Although, that meant that the last 1/4 of 2012 was spent sleeping and accomplishing little!

I decided that I’m not making resolutions for 2013–I’m too tired to think about that anyway!

What about you? What was your “best of 2012” and what are you looking forward to in 2013?

    My best moment of 2012 was the birth of fifth child – such a sweet baby!! No resolution exactly, but each of us in the family picked a different fruit of the Spirit to pray about and work on this year. Mine is gentleness…definitely something I would like to grow in this year!

    Some big things for us in 2012 were our youngest son graduating from high school and starting college, selling our old house, and redoing our patio.

    Hope you have a wonderful 2013!
