A New Year! These are funny to me, because they’re all really just another day, but also so fraught with new beginnings and expectations. I personally started mine off right by running my car into a barbed wire fence, so now we’re dealing with the subsequent frustrations of taking care of that. It’s easy to get caught up in the frustration of all of it, without stopping to think about the bigger picture–that we are happy, healthy, relatively wealthy as far as world standards go, and truly blessed beyond belief. This has been such a huge year for me personally, and gratefully, one that I will always look back on fondly. So, hopefully the new year will be a year of seeing the big picture in that way, and not of getting bogged down by the small frustrations that don’t really matter.
Here’s to you, 2013.
