But, I had to blog one last time to wrap up 2008. Last year I turned my 2007 blog into a book, using Blurb, and plan to do so again. So I need a good wrap-up post.
So, this year. Kind of kicked my butt. This was, of course, my first year of being a mom for a full year, and in a leap year, no less. It was a wonderful and challenging 366 days. We had some stresses- most particularly Daniel's job sagas, but God was faithful to us and gave us peace and strength while we waited for answers.
And Ethan has grown and grown and is now a little boy who likes to play with cars rather than the lumpish baby that he was last New Year's Eve. He never ceases to amaze and amuse us. And drive us a little insane, but I think that's in his job description.
It's really hard to believe that we'll have a whole other little person celebrating with us next New Year's Eve. Really a weird thought. But I'm looking forward to that.
So here's to 2009, the year of more changes and more realizations that yes, I am an adult and a mom and a wife and that's my reality and I need to embrace that. I'm looking forward to seeing what God has in store for us.
I wish you all a very blessed and wonderful New Year.
