So Long 2011

The year 2011 was a year of many ups and downs for Jack and I.  Probably more downs that ups.  Looking back on a year of a lot of sadness and loss, it got me thinking of what I want my 2012 New Years Resolution to be.

This year, I am going to make a point of being grateful and happy for the things I have in my life at this very moment.  Easy huh?  Not quite.  I go day to day a lot of times overlooking the wonderful home I live in, my car that gets me from place to place, my family who is always there, my friends who would do anything for me...  Not that I don't appreciate all of these things, but I feel like I need to say it out loud more.  A lot of times, I don't express my gratefulness for things until they are gone.  I don't want it to be like that anymore.  So in 2012, I hope to be more vocal about my specific blessings, for I do not know what tomorrow holds.

Happy New Years to all of my readers!  I hope this year is your best yet!


  1. Many blessings to you guys in 2012

    I met your sister the other night! so sweet :)

  2. This is a great resolution and one I also plan on keeping this year. I make a point to thank God for 5 things every night and then realize He has given us sooo much; it never stops at 5!
    Hope this year brings many blessings to you and your family. Happy 2012!
