Where did the 2013 go! It seems just yesterday we were ringing 2013 in with friends at the Oasis in Austin.
Last night my kids went to a party and the husband and I went out to eat and went home to see a movie. A nice night in after a flurry of holiday activity. I woke up this morning to the realization that 2014 is the last full year I will have my oldest at home. She’ll graduate high school in 2015 and head off to college. 2014 will hold a lot of new activity for us – SAT/ACT, college visits and applications…the future is here. It’s an exciting time.
Plans for 2014 include – travel to NC for the Overtime Tournament for girls lacrosse, a few horse shows, a wee bit of home updating (paint and flooring in my bedroom, crossing my fingers!) and some other trips that are as of yet undetermined. We did quite a bit of remodeling in Port A in November to prepare for 2014. This spring, we’ll touch up the paint in Galveston, inside and out. In January the rest of the family will be involved in a youth retreat and I’m running away to the beach for a few days for some R&R and to do some planning. I. Can’t. Wait. I so need an infusion of some salt air!
2014 will likely hold a lot of firsts and probably as many lasts for our family. And I’ll be faced with plenty of opportunity for TRUST. “For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord” (Jeremiah 29:11). It may not look ok in the moment, but it will be all good in the end. Happy New Year to all!
