stepping into twenty ten



as we come to a close on two thousand and nine i can't help but look back at what this year has brought and be incredibly grateful for all the blessings i have encountered. and now as we move forward into another year i am really excited. i think this might be one of the first times i have been excited about where my life is and how it is heading and what i would like to accomplish.
the Lord truly has been good to us! i have a loving husband, a beautiful daughter full of joy, another little one on the way that i can't wait to meet, the best friends any girl could ever want (even if they are all scattered across the globe), and a supportive loving family. those are just a few of the many blessings i can express.

i'm not one to set goals for a new year, but this year it is not about setting goals, but more like things i would like to accomplish. i know you might think that those are the same thing, but to me in my little brain, things i would like to accomplish actually seems like something i might achieve rather then set and not follow through on. here's my list of things i will accomplish...Lord willing...

  • daily reading the bible...chronologically
  • starting and finishing my new book Perfect Health and changing our family's eating lifestyle...(thank you bethany for this one)
  • getting rid of stuff...this is a continual cycle
  • reading all the books on my amazon wish list and then more i find along the way
  • returning phone calls and emails more promptly. this is one i try every year and fail. this will be the year i accomplish this new habit.
  • looking into what it would take to be a natural childbirth educator
  • giving my blog here a new fresh look...and trying to update it more
not an extensive list, but one i do truly want to accomplish this year.

thanks for the blog support and hopefully this year will be one of more exciting topics and creativity as i venture into new books and other things this year may hold. praying you have a happy new year. may the Lord give you another year of abundant blessings!

today i am incredibly grateful for...this past year...with all the fun times and hard times (of which there were many as i am learning how to be a mom) i am still so grateful for each one i encountered. i pray you can be thankful for yours as well.

thirty


yesterday i rang in the big three-zero. still trying to figure out how i feel about turning thirty. i don't feel thirty quite yet. although not quite sure how you are supposed to feel about turning thirty. either way all i could think yesterday was how blessed i am to have such a wonderful life.

my day was wonderful. full of surprises by my loving husband. mani-pedi in the morning, some time at the salon in the afternoon, a little shopping, a special dinner and an big surprise dessert with some of my dearest friends. i couldn't have asked for a better day! thanks hubby for all the love.

today i am incredibly grateful for...the wonderful blessed full life of thirty years the Lord has granted me. may the next thirty bring Him all the more glory.
