I can’t believe it’s 2015. The past year has been a whirlwind. 2014 brought both blessings and challenges, but I know both helped me to grow – as a Christian, as a wife, as a mother, as a daughter. I can only imagine what this year will have in store!
I always love the new year, somehow it seems like a fresh start. This year it’s bittersweet, because Jake’s birthday is coming up soon and I am simultaneously thrilled and terrified. He is healthy and handsome and smart and sweet. But it has gone so quickly, and I wish I could slow it down.
Resolutions? Hmmm. I’m never great at making or keeping them. I always have some vague idea – “be a better wife” or “be better at housekeeping” or “save money.” This year, I think my resolution is to give myself some grace. I’m never going to be perfect, life will never be in perfect balance. I need to let that go sometimes. Not that I can’t always strive to be my best, but that I shouldn’t guilt myself about every little thing when I fall short.
What are your hopes for 2015?
