2013 – Looking Back

I am a sucker for year-end posts and reflections, and what a year it’s been.  I know that is the trite thing to say when December closes, but really this has been quite a year for me.  So many changes.  We moved to a new home, and I started working again, and our day-to-day lives are so different because of those decisions.  And of course my kids are at those ages where they grow and change with each passing week.  It’s amazing and terrifying all at once.

I’ve loved watching milestones happen with that same happy-sad feeling that comes with motherhood.

There have been exciting trips and special occasions.

But they were punctuated by those everyday moments which are just as sweet.

Everyday exploring and regular life-living can feel mundane in the moment itself, but not so much as we look back.

So many prayers and hopes for the new year. Health and growth for my family. Personal growth, too. But more gratitude and contentment above all else, I think.
