2010? Are you kidding me? It seems like the years are ticking off SO fast. I don’t know if that means I’m getting older, or if time really is just moving faster!
2010. Wow. Jeff and I went out tonight with Caryl and David. We had a great dinner with great conversation and then planned to go see “The Blind Side” but it was sold out :) As we drove, Jeff and I were discussing things we would like to change in 2010. We dubbed it the year “Thin in ’10″ We’ll see! I definitely have a real incentive because Chase and Holly are getting married on May 22! And you know ‘mother of the groom’ is a pretty important part to play! HA! 2010 is also the year Jeff and I turn 50! That looks impossible in print. He of course is MUCH older than me with a May birthday to my October one.
Even in the chaos of a household with six kids and many more teens that are in and out at all hours, we have SO much to be thankful for. I find myself getting discouraged about the clutter, or the dust bunnies that have to wait because of an active 6 year old and a busy toddler, and then I remember how good God is and how undeserving I am. I just wish I would remember that every minute of every day!
So for all of us, may we embrace this year with love, joy, grace and the anticipation of great things. May we reach for dreams and desires that have alluded us in the past and may we make a difference in the lives of people around us just because we listen and care.
