It has been a big year for my family.
We started praying about making a move quite some time ago, and God provided mightily with another job that my husband loves. The best part? We’re super close to family now. My children have never been close enough to spend the night with their cousins or grandparents, but they can now. It has been sweet. And still so tough to leave the town we have called home for over a decade.
Meanwhile, the blog has taken a back seat. I started 2014 with a nice writing schedule and high blog stats, which only increased every month. The MamaDiscipline series was a huge hit. We talked about organizing, exercise, church attendance, and meal planning. Then it all had to go out the window while I kept the house spotless to get it sold. And we moved. Twice.
Still, I tackled #Write31Days, an exercise in the discipline of writing. Everyone loved the conversation on Letting Go of Perfect. It was so nice to see that I’m not the only one who struggles with perfectionism. But I ended up 31 Days on burnout. In December, I took a nice break. I wanted to focus on time with my children and doing all the fun, Christ-centered things we enjoy at Christmas. No regrets.
And in the latter half of this year, you’ve been patient, still encouraging me with your kind comments and by sharing my posts with your friends. You all make it fun to do this. You make it a joy to write and have a nice community of friends and readers.
Thank you, friends, for the encouragement.
Thank you for being a part of this community.
Thanks for your honesty and your openness in your comments and conversations with me. I look forward to 2015 with you, knowing that by the grace of God, we can all become better moms, wives, and followers of Christ together.
