The last day of every year is always special, but in our home it’s extra special because it’s our eldest daughter’s birthday!!
Sydney turned 8 today and we went to Toronto in the afternoon to see Disney on Ice.
It was a wonderful show and brought back many fond memories from our trip to Walt Disney World last January.
Our seats were amazing by the way!
As 2011 draws to a close I am of course taking time to reflect. I am so grateful for each day God gives me here, I’m still feeling blessed for every breath. I suppose when you’ve come so close to death or losing everything it gives you perspective.
2011 was a good year, I’ve continued to progress. In 2011 I focused upon having positive internal thoughts, being aware of the words I choose and responding to others with Love. Simply because of these efforts 2011 qualifies as a good year. It wasn’t all rosey, I felt physical, emotional and spiritual pain but through these experiences my resolve has remained intact.
I am determined to live “out loud”, experiencing each day as it comes in God’s time and for His purpose rather than my own.
In 2012 I will continue upon this path, challenging myself further while I ensuring my spiritual foundation remains strong.
Tonight I wish everyone a safe and happy evening, tomorrow is a new beginning as each morning is.
God grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
the Courage to change the things I can and
the Wisdom to know the difference.
