Adios 2011, Hello 2012

Hello! I know I have been MIA for the last two weeks and for that, I am sorry! With the Christmas break, we have been super busy adding in a few sicknesses in here and there! Today marks the beginning of a new year….. Do you do New Years resolutions? I don’t. Too much pressure. I don’t think there should be one day set aside where you set goals for yourself! I think every day you should set goals for yourselves and achieve them!

While 2011 was somewhat of a heartbreaking year, I am truly looking forward to 2012…. I am hoping I can turn that heartbreak around, and if not, I pray that Jesus gives us another path to go down. I am not a quitter, and we haven’t quit yet…. We have always wanted to have a sibling for our son, and while this year was full of nothing but heartache and defeats, I know deep down there IS a reason why. It is just hard for me to wrap my mind around it. I constantly see all these people that have babies and I can’t help but wonder, does God not want me to have another….. So for all you prayers warriors out there, please pray for me. For peace and understanding and if it is not in God’s plan that we have another child, please pray that we can move past our own personal hopes and that the plan he has in store us is crystal clear.

I hope all of you have a wonderful 2012!!!!

I promise I am back with something crafty tomorrow, if I can locate the mojo that appears to have been flushed down the toilet! 🙂
