2011

Whew…I made it.

I am so happy that I managed to survive the end of 2010. December was crazy busy (as it typically can be, but worse this year due to my job!) and it got worse around Christmas. I got caught in a frenzy trying to close out work on a high note, shop for gifts, bake a ton of goodies, and still hit a bunch of gatherings with friends and family. Things all pretty much worked out, but I didn’t emerge unscathed. I came down with a pretty nasty cold almost a week ago, and had to close out 2010 sick.

For the most part, 2010 was a year filled with adventures and learning experiences, for which I am always grateful, despite the tough growing pains. At the end of each year I marvel at all the ways in which I am blessed. 2010 was particularly special due to the further blossoming and strengthening bond with my boyfriend. He has been a rock throughout all of my experiences in 2010, and each and every day I continually praise God for bringing him into my life.

Now, as for 2011 — with the way it has kicked off, it promises to bring many more learning experiences and opportunities for growth. I have to admit, learning and growing are not always easy. I’m standing on some shifting sand as far as work is concerned, and despite this I have been trying to be positive and continue pressing on towards my dreams and personal goals. This is certainly going to be an interesting year. But with the love and support of my family, friends, and of course, my love, I know it’ll be ok.

All I have to say is BRING IT ON, 2011.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you,” declares the LORD, “and will bring you back from captivity. I will gather you from all the nations and places where I have banished you,” declares the LORD, “and will bring you back to the place from which I carried you into exile.”
Jeremiah 29:11-14
