2011 truly changed me as a person.
2011 truly changed my marriage.
2011 truly changed what I want from my life.
2011 changed the way I see my sisters.
2011 changed the path for my future.
2011 gave me a fresh start.
These are only a few of the events that made 2011 the year it was for me. There were lots of little things. Little changes. Little battles won. Little hopes and dreams accomplished that also made it a great year…a pivotal year.
And as for today, this New Year’s Eve, I find myself feeling grateful for the year behind me and truly excited about the year ahead. I’m not going to make resolutions or promises I won’t keep this year, because this year has taught me more than anything that you can never be sure where life will take you. I do want to continue to focus on the positive changes 2011 has brought into my life, and I’m looking forward to the ways the Lord is going to continue to grow and mature me into the woman He has called me to be. I feel so blessed that He’s not quite done with me.
Yes today, I am choosing to embrace the final sunset of 2011, and I look forward to the sunrise which will be 2012. Bring it on.
