On such a politically exhausting day, with the spirit of restarting, resetting and repairing in the air, I am bit overcome with emotion as I realized the monster of a year that was dealt to us! Our path is much different! I never could have imagined the incredible 2016 narrative the Lord entrusted us.
Last year there was certainly many keepers to choose from for the memory book. Opposed to the trending talk of New Years resolutions to “restarting” life, for us, it would be down right unjust to down play the monumental accomplishments of the year, rather we feel it is best to recognize and appreciate this blessed path we are on and vow to stretch a bit more.
The events and emotions in one year was as broad spectrum as Ecclesiastes 3:1, our “times” were simply off the charts.
For us personally 2016 was witness to the fears of new beginnings, the strength of being a unified team, hopelessness in financial hurdles, heights of tangible results we were told 5 years ago would never ever happen, frustrations of not meeting self expectations, heartbreak from family loss, hope in family expanding, homesickness (west and east coast), the joy of new friends and mostly the year has unfolded the love for each other that will endure any impossible mountain ahead.
The visual of our year in review just adds a little more fire in my soul and motivation, not to waste time in 2017.
As an initial opportunity of a life time phases out we can only imagine what the next season brings.
Thank you all so much for the love and support in our lives! What a year it has been and what a year it will be!
Much love, God Bless.
