It is nearing midnight and the house is quiet. It feels nice, yet I am way too tired to enjoy it for too long. Busy and full doesn't even begin to describe the last few months. Especially the last couple of weeks! Even though we have had a lot going on, we have had so much love and joy mixed in with the busyness. I feel like I have a pocket FULL of memories from 2008 to think back over with fondness. There are challenging things in our life and there are wondrous things in our life; the only thing that I know for sure is that through both, God is with me. He is the constant thing in my life from year to year, and I hope that He will be with you in 2009. Happiest of New Year wishes to you! Light those fireworks!!!! See you in 2009!!!
