It’s been a while since I’ve written, so thank you so much for sticking with me! I’m going to be honest, as I approached this year, I kept questioning, “What is 2023 going to bring?” After the chaos of 2020, I moved into 2021 and 2022 without even attempting to come up with goals, because I felt like nothing went according to plan, so why bother. But this year just feels different.
I’m walking into 2023 with actual goals! Last year we decided we’re finished having babies, and I’m beginning this year with an 18 month-old, a three-, and five-year-old. My homeschooled 5 year-old is reading like a champ, my 3 year-old is a social butterfly, and my youngest is beginning to speak. We’ve been changing up our daily routines, so we can get more things done around the house and have less chaotic lesson times. Some things I’m looking forward to this year are…joining a small group, co-leading an FPU class with my husband, working out, and getting together with friends, at least once a month.
I’m also planning to write more this year, take a trip with the hubbs for our anniversary, and to read lots of books! While, 2021 and 2022 seemed to steal all my aspiration and initiative, I’m much more hopeful about 2023. Dreams that I’ve laid down, I’m attempting to pick back up, and things I’ve needed to lay down, I continue to daily lay down at the foot of the cross.
So, we’ll see, how 2023 goes. I’m looking forward to a new year, with new adventures, and opportunities to learn and grow, to disciple and be discipled.
Truth, love, and grace to you all!
