Looking back at 2013

Can you believe that this is the last day of 2013?

December 31st?  Really?

What about new years resolutions?

Got any?  I'm not really sure if I'm going to participate in resolutions this year.  I think last year I set a few goals that I wanted to accomplish, and I think I got some of them done.
But I don't like to set myself up for failure if you know what I mean so if I do set any
goals this year, they will be simple and hopefully easy to keep.

When I was thinking back on all that's happened this year I was trying to think
about what I learned from everything.

My son and his fiancee set a date to get married so that has been a change for us, but if he's happy, and I like her so I am pretty happy.
That said, I want him to be ready for what awaits him.  
Not a lot I can do at this point except pray for him and his new bride and trust Jesus.

This year, most of my family has maintained their health so that is a great blessing.
After a year or so of some bad health, maintaining is awesome!

My sweet baby girl started college, still doesn't know what she wants to be when she grows up, but she's trying to narrow down the field.  

Man, it's hard to be a grown up!

I started helping with our youth group which I never thought I would love as much as
I do!  That has been awesome!

I have felt the last 3 months like time has been flying by, there are days when I feel I don't have 5 minutes to myself, so I would like to try to carve out some ME time.  

Maybe that will be one of my goals.

Although when I try to do something for me, I sometimes feel a little selfish when 
I do that, so maybe I'll just try not to be so selfish.

What day is this?

Okay, I can't believe it's already December 19th, and I haven't done a post since October!!

Honestly, I have a hundred excuses for why I haven't done one, but none of them are
really that great so I won't bore you with them.

I will say that while I have been very busy.  (That's one of my excuses.)  
I have not been unproductive.

I finished my driftwood mirror.  That counts for something doesn't it.

But mostly I have just been living this crazy thing we call life.  Working, taking care 
of my people, and being Thankful.

I guess I got caught up in the daily grind and while I was reading everyone
else's blogs, my little life didn't feel all that interesting.  (Another excuse.)

Then I said to myself, you know what, the fact that I am different from everyone else
is just ONE of the things that we should celebrate.  What fun would it be if we were
all alike?

In conclusion, I will try harder to update more.  And I will see if I can find something interesting to say.
