As New Year's approaches I always look at the things I did this year, as I prepare my goals for next year.
Wow what a year we have had....
-- Reuniting with my brother after 21 years.... How do I top that?
-- First cruise taken last Feb/ first real vacation in 7 years!
-- Started training for triathlon, completed first triathlon! woo hoo.
-- Trained (over 200 miles ran in training) and ran in first 1/2 marathon - and finished!
-- Worked out nearly everyday since July! ( little boasting here!)
-- Watched Josie start talking in 3 word sentences.
-- Watched John Isaac develop the best sense of humor!
-- Watched Detrix lifting weights and bulk up (look out future bodybuilder here)
-- Witnessed Derrick fall victim to a stroke in our own home, watched as he fought for life, and then was privileged to see him miraculously healed.
Wow what a year. I am still fine tuning my physical goals for next year.... But I know I have atleast 2 traithlons I want to train and compete in, and it looks like I am going to do another 1/2 marathon... (raising money for stroke awareness and prevention) I think I am a little crazy! But I am more than happy to push my self to do things I didn't think were possible a year ago!
Family life in rewind....
03 John born - has seizure at 30 days old.
04 Derrick loses job
04 house burns to ground
04 daughter born with 2 tumors
05 - fairly "normal" - no huge issues just rebuilding house and moving 5 times!
06 - stroke/miracle
07? Nothing but happiness! In Jesus name!!
Bless you all - - Hope you have enjoyed reading the good the bad and the ugly that comes from life. I am a person that always says what is on my mind, so if anyone is still reading this.... Thanks! Have a wonderful New Year.
Remember - "For I know the plans I have for you."... " plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11-13
If you have had a not so great year - put your eyes on the above scripture - that is for you. Just a word of thought, for you as you plan for the new year.
