New Year’s Part 4- Blessings


family picNow that we are geared up to release 2015 in a glass of champagne and have our 2016 hopes and dreams laid out we must take a moment to be grateful.  Goodness, I don’t know anyone that came away from 2015 unscathed.  Yikes, it was a doozy.  But there are reasons behind change, behind life.  We must take our lessons and see where they lead us all.  But we must always hang on to hope.  And hope comes in the form of 2016 today.  Take a moment and write down all the things you are grateful for while I jot down mine…

Mine filled a full page.  The opportunities, the love, the kids, marriage, health, family, friends, animals, shop, lessons learned, and memories made; riding in a small plane and communing with wild horses.  It was an interesting year.  Please share your dreams, ideas, and blessings in the comments if you wish.  See you next year!

  1. Someone recently shared and idea that we are going to try and incorporate in 2016. Write down good things that happen throughout the year and place them in a jar. On New Year’s Eve, read all that was written as a reminder of how good the year has been to you.

    It’s so easy to focus on the negative and forget all the really good things that have happened to us and I think it’s a wonderful lesson for our girls. It also caused us to pause and each say one good thing that happened for us this past year.

    1. Our trip to North Carolina and experiencing Carowinds Amusement park. I was a really good and very memorable trip.
    2. Getting the RV. Little did we know the RV we got for travel would become our home 🙂
    3. Our move to Texas and all the opportunity that brings.
    4. Being closer to family here in Texas.

    We look forward to seeing what good things come our way in 2016 and I’m anxious to see what good things come your way in the New Year.
