A New Year


My Tired Look...I think this is my signature look! :-)

1 Corinthians 7:17
...as God has called each, in this manner let him walk.

So here's my mantra or focus for this year. I think I'll need to revisit this often, especially after returning to work with an infant in August. I did a pretty bad job of having a wonderful (or even decent) attitude last time around. Then again, I was a TERRIBLE pregnant lady when I was carrying sweet Little Livy. You live, you learn, you grow.

I can list the things in my life I never thought would be the way they are, as I'm sure everyone can, but my time is much better spent by counting my blessings and doing the jobs I've been given in life.

On another note, I find it very interesting that the most important events happen in my life in even years:

1986 - Little sister born
1996 - Met my future husband
2000 - Graduate high school
2002 - Marry that high school sweetheart
2004 - Graduate college; Begin teaching career
2006 - Have Olivia and become Mommy
2010 - Lily to be born!

Um...1982? Hello? ;)

I can't wait to meet Lily! I REALLY can't wait to get all of us together again to hear Mom say things like "Lane-Liv-Lily!" Yep. You've really confused her this time. :)
