A Reflection on 2012

23 Dec

I don’t even know how I can properly sum up the year my family has had. It has been trying, exhausting, happy, sad, fun, but most importantly I feel like I am a better person in December than I was in January.

It has been a year of growing pains and has produced a lot of experiences to learn and grow from. In January we had distant hopes of someday, maybe in ten years, running our own business. It was just a dream that I never really expected to come true. Now, in December, it is looking like it may become a reality in 2013. No words can possibly express how excited we are for it.

January started with our car breaking down and me panicking and crying that things were just getting worse and worse. That car breaking down was really what lit a fire under us. We bought a van and decided that since we were buying such a large vehicle we really needed to get moving and make use of the vehicle for our business. Boy we sure have gotten use out of it.

For the first time in years I feel like I can reflect back on the year and be proud of just about all of the decisions we have made. I’m not really sure that I have ever been so proud of myself and I am not ashamed to say it.

All I can hope for 2013 is for my family to stay happy and healthy. 2013 will be a crazy year. Nikkos starts school, Tom will likely leave his job to run our business full time and with God on our side we may even start looking for a house. I am so excited about all of it.
