This year has taught me a lot but if I had to name the number one lesson I have gained this year it would be…
expect the unexpected!
not only expect it but embrace it as well!
I laugh every time I look at that picture. I hope it makes every one who opens it laugh as well!
I wouldn’t have it any other way. In fact we had professional family pictures taken back in October that turned out beautifully but they just didn’t capture our family in a way that really represented our past year enough to win the coveted Christmas card position. This one however, did perfectly.
I am so very thankful for everything that has been put in my path this year. I have learned so much and surprised even myself with how strong I can really be. My husband telling me that I am “tough as nails” ranks as one of my favorite things I have heard this year (or ever).
I love my family and understand just a little bit more how lucky I am to have all of them. I have let go of a lot of worrying and fear because I know that I can handle all things through Him.
And I have loved stepping into this new world thanks to designPOST! I am beyond excited to see where this next year takes me. I hope I may end up in some of your homes (that sounded creepy, right?)
I hope that no matter what I enjoy the things I choose to do and that I am able to find the positive in the things I have to do.
I hope that your year brings you lots of unexpected joy. I hope I take time to enjoy all the
unexpected-ness that comes my way! I hope 2012 is a great one for all of us!
