Happy New Year everyone! May today be the start to a wonderful year for you all. May the Lord bless you richly and more importantly, may you grow to know Him more---His peace, His love, His forgiveness, His joy.
Last night was 10 years since spending my first New Year with Darling Dearest with him wrestling with my brothers. Aww, memories! Ok, so last night we didn't make it past 11 (probably more like 10:30). I even turned my phone on silent so my sleep wasn't disrupted by Happy New Year texts/calls. Someone should've given the people in the neighborhood who love to set off fireworks the memo. ;-) We were exhausted and both have sinus infections---YUCK! So we had a relaxing night at home (truth: we are babysitterless which means we haven't even had a couple hours alone since our 5 year anniversary in June--we really need to move where we have family or get family to move here ASAP). Suprisingly, I actually enjoyed being home. It was nice to both put Bug to sleep and say our bedtime prayers as a family while praying for all those we love as we enter a new year. Wouldn't have traded that for a night on the town anyway.
This past year has been my best one yet, with the introduction of our Bug into our lives. We've been so blessed this year with me being able to stay home with her and watch her every new skill. She's brought more joy than imaginable into our world and I'm so grateful for the gift of her life. We've got a lot to be thankful for from the past year and even decade. I look forward to all that 2010 will bring our family and our loved ones. It's the beginning of a new year and a new decade! Let's make this year a great one!!
