2013 Highlights…so far

4 Apr

So far, 2013 has been a year of new beginnings for my little family. We started the year off by making the decision to move back to Austin from Pastoring in Bryan, Tx for 3 yrs. Although it was a very hard decision to make, we are happy to know that we are right where God wants us, for now!
After being in our new home for 1 week, we rescued a sweet dog who we named Boros, Bo for short.  He has been a wonderful addition to our new beginning!   My hubby immediately got a new job that has been such a blessing! Definitely an answer to prayer! In March, my family of 5 and my sister in law’s family of 5, rented a 15 passenger van (yes, crazy, I know! ) to Colorado Springs for their grandmother’s Memorial.  Although it was a sad time for the family, our kiddos were able to meet cousins for the first time and a new beginning of family bonding was created. Oh! And by the way, we all survived that road trip w/o hurting each other! When we did get frazzled, we’d remind ourselves that we’re “making memories! ” 🙂 Since then, my oldest son and his cousin from Florida have stayed in touch…which I absolutely Love! Speaking of my oldest son, he just turned 13! Wow! We have a teenager in the house! I’d say that’s most certainly  a new beginning!  Wait. A. Minute…my kids are not supposed to grow up! I gave them strict orders to stay small & chubby forever…sigh. So far, we’ve enjoyed having a teenager in the house, except the part where he wants to eat like a man!

I am very grateful for all the awesome new beginnings that God has blessed us with so far this 2013!
