Happy new year

In 2011 I TRIED to blog more...God had other plans. In 2011 hubby and I TRIED to expand our family...and
God saw fit to bless us with another little one. I thought the year would be full of me doing cool blog posts about my cool crafts and things, filled with quirky comments and adorable photos...but it wasn't. I spent 5 months of 2011 barely able to take care of myself and my family, and then spent 4 more just trying to make it through. It was so much harder than I expected...i struggled as a mom, as a wife, and as a christian. There was a good chunk of this past year that I was very depressed, angry, and ungreatful. But in all of the very human mess that happened in 2011, there was one thing that was always the same...God knew what He was doing.
This year I have learned more then any other time in my life that there is a reason, a good reason, for our trials.
My suffering this year was so small compared to what others went through...and I can see, touch and snuggle the good reason for it.
In 2012 I may not become a hip blogger, or even post at all...i dont know what God will bring this year, but I know it will be for the best reasons possible.
I'm ready to see what 2012 will bring!

  1. Happy New Year! I felt that 2011 was also a great year of struggle for me as well, Laura, in the same points you mentioned. I enjoyed hearing your expression and truthful thoughts. This year I am hoping to blog more and fb less. ~LR
