Between family gatherings, a new job, and spending lots of time cuddling up to my very favorite little girl ever, I have been neglecting this blog. I apologize. One thing that I am making a real effort to remember is that no matter what, my daughter comes first on my list of priorities. I've started a new job, which thankfully, I can do from home and at any hours that I wish. This is a tremendous blessing, but it also takes up any and all free time that I have. I'm not complaining.
2011 has truly been a year full of blessings for me and my family. When I reflect on the many occasions that my family and I had to celebrate this year, I realize yet again that there is one major thing that ties it all together - family. Whether your family is ready-made or a hand-picked collection of friends, neighbors, and church members, my wish for you for the new year is this:
Surround yourself with those that you love. Visit them often, laugh with them daily, and turn to them when times get hard.
I do not usually like to make new year's resolutions, but this one is important, for many reasons beyond the obvious. I very much would like to spend more time with my family in the coming year. Here's to another year full of love, blessings, and togetherness! Happy (early) 2012!
