I’d like a do-over for 2015. Well, maybe not…I don’t want to do it all again… I am just so glad it’s almost about over and we get to start anew for 2016. 2015 was not our best year.., well some of it was okay but the rest, not so much . It happens, life happens and some of it isn’t great sometimes. Sometimes you go from plan A, to plan B to plan C to what the heck do we do now? Oh I know things always can be worse and of course I am so so so grateful they weren’t worse. We survived and with new perspective and a new appreciation for the hope and love we share.
We endured a big move for our family, a massive rennovation of a total fixer house and living there while we did it (not a good idea people), Mom’s accident, Dad’s surgury, my boy’s motorcycyle accident, two boys moved out, one moved back in, adjusting to a new area, both my camera’s broke during the busy season,..bleh. Not fun stuff. But honestly through all that, God so clearly took care of us, he was always, always with us. We can’t be broken, our strength is in Him. Mom is healing, Dad’s doing great, Andrew not only survived the horrific accident but didn’t break a single bone, not one..the major rennovations are done and we are settling in and I have both camera’s back working perfectly and ready to capture the beauty of this crazy wonderful life we’ve been blessed with.
I really am so grateful for answered prayers and a year of seeing God’s love for us in how we are loved, and love each other and in all His beautiful creations including; the heavens and stars, the deserts, mountains, beaches and all the wonderful places we got to visit this year.
There is always a rainbow, you just have to look for it.
From my amazing, loveable, drive-me-crazy family to yours, we wish you the Merriest, most joy-filled Christmas and the MOST amazing, hope-filled, blessing-beyond-what-you-could-ever-ask-for, Happy New Year! I can feel it, 2016 is going to be AWESOME!!!!
(and just because I get asked, I did take my own family christmas picture, I used a remote, it’s small but you can see it there in my hand). 🙂
