Welcome 2009!

While 2008 was a great year, it is not one that I am sad to see come to a close. It brought with it great joy, along with tremendous struggle. Most of the year was spent in survival mode... just trying to make it to the next day. Sounds a bit dramatic, but emotionally that was were I was at. Well, I made it through ... and I think that I may have even grown a little from the whole experience. Now I am ready for 2009! I am praying for a year where I live life more thoughtfully and peacefully. I have let my role as single working mom rule my life... not working so well, as I am exhausted, worried, and frustrated most of the time. I am ready to focus more on my role as daughter, daughter of the King. I am ready to turn in exhaustion, worry and frustration for things like love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. It is going to be a good year!

Can you believe that this post has taken me an hour to write? I wrote and wrote and deleted and deleted... then wrote and wrote and deleted and deleted. Hmmmm... that is how I blog. I process lots of thought and then delete or store them in a draft file. Most of my thoughts never make it public... and it is probably better that way.
