Since I can't sleep, I decided I'd read a blog or two. And looking at my own blog, I realize that I haven't kept up with mine at all. My last post was in October! And obviously, we've had lots going on around here since October.
We've celebrated a couple of birthdays...
Mike turned 44 in October
And this fellow celebrated his 14th in November
I just can't get over this. My baby is 14! He certainly doesn't want me calling him my baby anymore! He's as tall as I am now, and quite proud of that fact! He's waiting for the day when he exceeds my height, and I have a feeling that day won't be long in coming. Wow! He is growing up so quickly, and I am so proud of the young man he is becoming! I'm very thankful to be his mom!
With 2012 coming to an end, I've had much time to reflect on the many blessings I have experienced this year. The Lord has been so good to me; He is faithful. He has seen me through the ups and downs of this year, and the many challenges that it has brought. 2012 has been filled with many growing pains, that's for sure! But through it all, my LORD has drawn me closer to Him, and has brought our family closer together, too.
I am thankful for my family, thankful to be a wife and mother. I am thankful for the friends He has placed in my path. But most of all, I am thankful for the love of my Savior, for His faithfulness, and for His saving grace! I hope you have had ample opportunity to experience Him this year. May His grace and peace be yours in the upcoming new year.
