It seems like just yesterday that I was posting on New Year's Day-2006. 2006 just flew by! It was a little bit of a difficult year, with a lot of transition and disappointment in some areas. We had a failed adoptive placement, and moved after only living in our home for 20 months. We sold our house and moved so quickly at the end of the year, and it was so very stressful. Losing Zac was also very painful. He was so much a part of our lives for the two months he was with us, yet it was not God's plan for him to be with us long-term. I know that God has a plan for everything, and we sure did learn a lot from the experiences in 2006. Good things also happened in 2006. We started the long journey of paying off debt. At least we are heading in the right direction. We had a big Christmas this year, kind-of spoiling each other for the first time in few years. We learned to appreciate our little family of three. We are not sure if this is all there is of us...and maybe it is. Maybe our plan is just to be three...and that's ok. One of my goals in 2007 is to come to some acceptance of that. I would also like to lose 100 pounds. I know it sounds like a lot, but I would still like to achieve that goal. I am tired of being the fattest person in the room, I am tired of dreading getting down on the floor to play with Katie. I really want to live past my 35th birthday, and I will not if I keep this body. I would also like to read my Bible daily. It should be such an important part of my day, and I would like to make it that. I want to make Christ the center of my life.
Well, Katie is needing breakfast, so I need to go. I am going to really try to blog more often this year.
