Happy New Year!
With 2009 drawing to a close and a new decade upon us I suppose it’s time to review. There have been so many ups and downs but one thing is for sure 2009 was certainly not boring! On the church front I started leading worship and found that I’m not too bad at it despite my lack of confidence. Lee has been helping me sing better (thanks love!). Also Lee and I started a small group that we hope to keep going into the new year. Speaking of Lee she started Grad School this fall and received a 4.0!!! She’s amazing! Work has also had it’s ups and downs but things ended the year on an up note. Still trying to find the balance between work and pray but I think every one struggles with that…don’t you?
There were some sad points as well. There were some deaths in the family. My uncle Jimmy (my step-mom’s brother) passed away in July. Then shortly there after Lee’s uncle Nick passed away. My father lost his job and is now moving to Albany for a new one. I’ve never lived more than 10 minutes from him before so I’m a bit apprehensive about that. We’ll see how that pans out.
As the new year draws closer it’s time for new beginnings. There are some things about myself that I want…no need to change. Some health issues that I need deal with. Things like quitting smoking and losing weight. I’ve been paying for a gym membership for 6 months that I’ve only used a handful of times! Also I need to start handling money much better.
In any event 2009 we a mixed year. I just pray this new year and decade is amazing. What are your thoughts/memories of the last year?
PS I also resolve to update this blog more often 😀
