I am not going to lie! 2013 was good to us. I reflect on the year and it doesn't seem like it was a anything but a great year. I know there was some bad - I had a very hard time with one child in particular - the hardest time yet - and I got a not so nice introduction to anxiety, but when I close my eyes and think about it, it was still a great year.
None of us went hungry.
We had running water that was clean.
We had clothing that was appropriate for our seasons.
We had a running vehicle.
My husband has a job.
My kids are alive and for the most part, well.
We have a Bible in our own language.
We have healthy pets.
We have access to an education - in our case that is homeschooling.
We were able to pray and worship God without fear.
We have a roof over our heads.
We have heat in the winter and cool air in the summer.
So many things, so many privileges, so much love.
I say adieu to 2013 with much fondness as I have ever had for a year. I am looking forward to 2014, to see what this year has for us.
Happy New Year!
