Rushing Out 2012

It's New Year's Eve 2012 and we are rushing around trying to put everything away. Are we having a party we are trying to clean up for you might be wondering, nope, no party. You see last Saturday, Eric's grandma passed away. It was such a sad day, and Eric and I rushed out once we heard the news. We were planning on leaving 2 days later, but family first, even if that means dragging all your dirty laundry to your in-laws.

So we have spent the last 8 days with family celebrating a beautiful woman's life and also the birth of Christ. Such irony of life and death in the same week.

I have a lot more to share about our holiday and Eric's grandma. But tonight we are calming down from our great rush around to reflect and celebrate another year that God has gifted us. 2012 was a year of me being wrecked by Jesus, and I still feel like I am being wrecked again.

So here's to 2012, a year that brought me the end of one job, the start of another, running a half marathon, my first girl starting kindergarten, and so much more! I look forward to 2013, and I am so excited to see what God is going do in our family and through our family. Happy end of 2012 and beginning of 2013 friends!!
