It's 2012

My oh my how time flies. I say that often, but there is so much truth in that statement. My family still has the crud. Can you imagine? This stuff is lingering and lingering in spite of antibiotics and steroids. V and I feel incredibly terrible, since we were the ones to catch it last, we aren't as far into it as everyone else. I'm just thankful, ever so thankful, that school does not begin until next week. The Lord really takes care of us in small, simple ways that would be so easy to overlook. I'm so thankful for the little things.

I didn't really make any huge New Years Resolutions. The usual lose weight thing I am not focusing on. This year my goals are to finish. I want to stay in school and finish strong, meaning, I'll focus just a little more to pull up my grade point average. Currently I have a 3.2. I'd like to see a 3.5. I know I can do it. The other thing is to be a better dental assistant and push through this year. One day at a time. One step at a time. I can do this!

Today I have greatly appreciated the family time I've had with my husband and my girls. We have spent the day eating left overs, watching movies, snuggling, and talking. I love the unity we have. The trust. The openness. The willingness to hold nothing back. With my sixteen year old this is especially a good thing. Things are looking good for us this year. I thank God for 2011 and for 2012 I ask, "More Please!"

Love your new look!!! Well, to me it's new because I haven't been around in some time. One of the things I hope to do this 2012 is get more into the blogging routine of posting and reading post.

Family trust is SOOO important. In fact, next to love, it is the most important. Being open and honest is the only way to be able to trust one another. I treasure that within our family.
