2015 in review

images-5

I would like to pick a word to describe 2015, but I’m not sure there is a word that is sufficient.  If I’m 100% honest, it was bittersweet.  There were many sweet moments and some bitter moments that lead to much growth for me in my faith and as a person.  I don’t want to dwell on the bitter so here is a list of high moments from 2015.

*Sitting on the patio on vacation watching One Tree Hill and Bachelor in Paradise as I drank my coffee while the rest of my family slept.

*Tasting the different wines at Landon Winery with my book club gals.

*Road tripping to Phoenix and becoming closer than I ever thought with some of the best people I’ve met.

*Watching our book club grow.

*Becoming closer to my son and finally feeling like I know him and get him.

*Snuggling with my daughter who is full of sass and sweet all in one.

*Attending a training with Leslie Zann that taught me more than network marketing skills.

*Reading over 100 books and enjoying almost every second of that process.

*Binge-watching too many shows on Netflix and Hulu.

*Reconnecting with God and turning to Him through the bitter moments.

*Getting on a plane again and facing my fears with God at my side.

*Watching the kids play after school each day while I got to socialize with a dear friend.

*Finding a new church home that took almost a year of invitations to visit to get me there.

*Falling in love with Frogg Coffee in Allen–I miss those Friday meetups and highly recommend checking it out.

*Journaling a lot and SOAKing a lot through the Bible.

*Appreciating my time at home.

*Celebrating 10 years of marriage through all the ups and downs that would have broken up many others because we love each other that much.

*Hanging out with friends regularly and usually ending up talking about God and/or ghosts :).

*Having a group of friends who keep me on track and focused on God no matter what life throws at us.

*Filling my instagram feed with inspiration (go see who posts on #GoodMorningGirls and follow them all!)

*Getting over the road rage that ruined my mornings.

*Allowing myself to choose family first.

2015 was filled with tears.  Tears of joy, tears of pain.  Here’s hoping that 2016 is filled with more joy than pain.  I pray that we all are able to focus on joy and hope in 2016.
