Looking back at 2011

I realize i have not posted anything in forever. We have had alot of changes and a lot of stress but we are finally coming out of the fog and just relying on God because he makes no mistakes. I am not quite ready for a full on update but I will post this in honor of a new year!

Looking back at 2011

1. What did you do in 2011 that you’d never done before? This is a hard one because I don't think I did anything out of the ordinary.  Oh i did work for the post office for a few months! Lets just say that there was not a mailbox that my side view mirror did not come in contact with! haha

2. Did you keep your new year’s resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
I am pretty sure my New Years resolution was to lose weight and so the answer to that would be a big FAT NO!! UGH!! I have ZERO will power!

3. Did anyone close to you give birth?
Why yes they did my sister gave birth to my 3rd nephew Paxton!! He is such a doll baby!

4. Did anyone close to you die?
YES, last year was the worst year by far in our families for death. The two deaths that have impacted our family the greastest was the death of my grandmother in August unexpectedly and then the loss of my grandfather in law 2 weeks later. These 2 deaths have turned our world upside down and we miss them greatly. We do take comfort in know they are safe in the arms of Jesus and look down on us everyday. i just pray they are proud of the decisions we are making.

5. What countries did you visit? none

6. What would you like to have in 2012 that you lacked in 2011? patience

Sending my youngest to school for the first time and just my children in general! I love watching them learn and grow, they amaze me everyday!

26. What kept you sane? my husband, my momma, my daddy, and my children
27. Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2011? I learned that you really don't know someone till there's a death. I learned that family is the most important thing in life, I learned that friendship is not measured by who does what for who and when but by being able to sit in silence and know you are loved. I learned that my husband is truly the greatest and that I should give him more credit, i learned that those who feel the need to post how perfect there life is on Facebook every hour of the day really are trying to convince themselves instead of the world, I learned that you can completely uproot your life and turn it upside down and still be OK. I learned that no matter how bad things feel like they get, there is someone in the world with bigger problems and that by just giving them to God it will all work out in the end!
