A New Year

Finally I can say Happy New Year!

January 1st began with doughnuts and shopping but quickly became just a yucky, bad day. When I went to bed I decided to try the Groundhog Day approach to the next day. I would just try again.
So, January 2nd came and I locked my keys in the van while out of town and had to have AAA unlock my van. I had a horrible headache and still had to grocery shop. And not just a normal trip, but a big trip to the grocery store. The little boy behind me in line said, “that’s A LOT of money” twice when the clerk gave me my total. It was that kind of trip. So I once again decided to try the Groundhog Day approach.
And today was good. No need to call AAA, no headache, just a lazy New Years Day. Finally! I thought about a do over when the boys and Stephen played Monopoly all afternoon. All. Afternoon. But I chose joy and joy prevailed!
I didn’t make any resolutions this year. I know myself, and know that I wouldn’t keep any of them. There are things I would like to do better, eat, exercise, talk about Jesus. And I will try!
I pray this is a year full of Gods blessings. We’ve had a couple of rough years, with struggles of many kinds and I pray that this year we will see answers to our questions and results of our work. I know there are so many that are sad, grieving, and living new lives that they never could have imagined. I don’t want to seem like my struggles are anything like theirs. But when I think about my year, our life, these are the things I would like to see.
I am so very thankful for God’s provision in our lives. As I look over the last two years, i’m amazed at how the Lord has carried us through so easily. I don’t want to ever take it for granted. He has been so good, faithful, and true in our lives. 
Happy New Year to you. I pray you have a year that is full of evidences of Gods love and provision in your life. 
Love ya’ll!

Celebrating and decorating with purpose is my favorite thing to do. When I am not filling a tree with ornaments or throwing a birthday party for my golden doodle, I am being mom to a super cool tween son, the wife to a fine blue eyed man and selling real estate. I call northeast Arkansas home and when I am not loving on my people or celebrating in our space, I am using words to express myself here or on my podcast. Be sure to follow me! I am the co-author of a blog called Life with My Sister and have a podcast called Abby As-Is. You can also follow me on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest and YouTube.
