Goodbye 2013

Tuesday, December 31, 2013

Where do I start?  
There is a lot I could say and reflect on, but I will keep it short, because although my heart was thrown to the ground earlier this year, I am learning to count my blessings and thank God for the gifts he has given me here on Earth. The most important blessing being Scarlett.

I want to thank everyone for being so supportive and loving to us this past year.
Many of you mourned with us and celebrated with us.
It has been a roller coaster and I battle with my emotions every single day.
Nothing I do will bring my brother and nephews back, so each day I try to remember the good things and celebrate their life by talking about them and telling my daughter about her uncle and cousins.
I am thankful that they give me signs from Heaven and I find peace knowing that they are always with me.
Please keep sending me those signs.

There are no real goals or resolutions for the new year.
I have mixed emotions because I expected 2013 to be so different due to set goals and resolutions I made.
I simply pray and ask God to keep my family safe and to continue to help us heal.
I hope Scarlett continues to be happy & healthy, my marriage grows stronger, Joel continues to do well in school, my photography business continues to grow, and that I find new hobbies (like calligraphy) in the new year. But, all in all I just want peace safety.

Happy New Year everyone!
 and hug your loved ones and tell them you love them as much as often you can.

ps- taking a little blog vacation (in case you hadn't already noticed) to enjoy my family and friends during the holidays since it has been a difficult one. see you guys next week.
