in all honesty, i always get a little sad to wave goodbye to the year that is ending. although the years are filled with the bad stuff, there is so much more good. this year was actually pretty good to us. we celebrated finley’s first birthday, hayden started preschool, we sat back as we watched their brotherly love take off. we praised Him when we found out finley didn’t need surgery, there were no trips to the er for hayden, and i’ve gotten more sleep this past year than in a long time. cory gained more farm ground and i began blogging as a career. it was all so good. of course there were plenty of hard moments that came, too. followed by lots of tears.
but here we are, 2017 is ending, but the anticipation for what the new year will bring, and all the many more memories to be made, that is what makes me so excited for the year to come. i am not making any silly resolutions this year that i know i won’t keep, instead i am hoping to be better, in many ways really. for me. for the boys. for our family. to look back on all the light that shined throughout twenty sixteen and continuing growing that good.
happy new year’s eve friends. i hope your 2017 is filled with many blessings.
