A New Year

OMG.  Ok, I never really use text lingo on a regular basis, but that is what happened to 2011. I can't believe it's gone, yet I praise God for the trials and triumphs that occured last year, 2011.  Some were epic, and some were epic FALLS.  Yike! 

In a nutshell, here are a few highlights:
  • I quit my 9-5 job (cliche) at FSB after 4.5 years, making decent money.  That's hard to come by these days.
  • I started working back at the Nursing home, which I worked before the bank. For about a 40% pay cut.  God led me to do so, and it's been a reward since, why I ever doubted I don't know.
  • I felt as though I should quit my job expecting, by my own accord, to get into Nursing School.  This is the epic fall I talked about earlier. 
  • We won an AWESOME trip to Mexico in October, which we have yet to plan.  God's guidance, yet again.
  • I got into the LPN school that was back up for the RN program I didn't get into, but declined the offer.  I know, doesn't make sense right?  God's guidance, I pray everyday.
  • In all of this God got the glory, and I got to spend a lot of time with my wonderful son, Hale, that God has so graciously bestowed upon Heath and I.  
I know, doesn't seem like much happened, but a lot did, and it flew by.  I'm sure since I'm older now, with a husband and a child this year will fly by as well.

May God bless this year ahead and we seek his guidance and grow our relationship with Him, daily.

I confess, I have several New Year's Resolutions, or whatever you want to call them.

Here they are:
  • Lose 15 or so pounds.  I know everyone has these, but I'm going about it a different way than the past.
  • Pray daily and make time for reading God's word, and studying.
  • Make all A's this semester in my 4 classes.  
  • Reapply to the RN program at NWACC, and get in.  3rd time's a charm!
  • Go on our Mexico vacation that we won!  Woo Hoo
  • Go to at least 3 Razorback football games.
  • Be more patient with Heath and Hale.
  • Send cards for B-days, and holidays to my family.
  • Be more hospitable.
That's all that I can think of for now... until next time... look forward to my post about my room update that I posted about back in August.

God Bless ya'll!!
