2012 is Finally Over

2012 proved to be a very hard year. I felt like I went on a very difficult spiritual journey and I am glad it is over. This year my husband and I spent a lot of time thinking about who we are, where we are in life, and who we want to be and where we want to go. I feel like I have a new understanding of what I want in life and what, I hope, God wants in my life. Getting to a point where I now know what I want and I have a plan to get there was difficult and spiritually trying. I am ready for a year with new beginnings. I am ready for certain chapters in my life to come to end and for others to begin.

I experienced a lot of loss this year. In March a priest who was my spiritual director and father to me passed away. In August I lost my grandmother and 3 weeks later the mother to one of my cousins lost the battle to cancer. I had a couple of friends who lost children to miscarriage including one on Christmas Eve. Even my parent's dogs passed away.

There were plenty of good things that happen. My husband took up violin and proved to have amazing talent! My children have grown into beautiful little girls who amaze me every day! I have made new friends, rekindled old friendships, and grown closer to certain family members.

I have a lot of hope for what 2013 will bring and I have several New Years resolutions to help bring those things about. One of those resolutions is I hope to blog more and post more gluten free recipes.

I hope you all had a wonderful new year and I hope you all have a very blessed 2013!
