Good Bye 2007

2007 a year of the fast. Yes, this year was fast. I can NOT believe that this is 2008 already.

When I look back on '07 not much hits me. It went so fast. I never had time to sit and enjoy it. This past year I split ways from two very close friends of mine. They were older than me and sometimes when your a lot younger than a friend they think of you as more of a child than a equal. I miss them both and wish them well.

I made some very good new friends. They may be in the virtual world but, our friendship is real. I am very thankful for all the peas over at 2pp's that I have gotten to know and learn more about as time goes on. (Andi, Sandi you two are the best peas in the pod)

I said good bye to an artist and a very wonderful friend Sarah, who went home to be with the Lord. I miss her dearly.

This year was really a blur. I have come to realize that this year I really need to grow. Having a few days off from work I realize how little time I spend at home. I really need to get my life in order and I need to build my relationship with Christ. My relationship with him has changed I seem to be gliding along and not really following. I need to work on that very hard this year.

I have very few goals this year, Loose weight, go as green as possible in my home and office, get my money in order. ( not to bad huh)

In February I will be flying to Nashville with my youngest son to see my wonderful niece be born. Elizabeth Dawn will be coming and I get to be there. I miss my sister soooo much. I can hardly wait to see her. It is one of the very hardest things for me to do. FLY, I hate it with a major passion. ( I am now crying that is how much I hate it) I had a major panic attack last night thinking about it. I called my dh at work I was soo upset I thought I may have to go to the hospital.. It is something I have to do. My sister needs me and I need to be there to see my niece born. I need as much prayer as possible for this one please.

So, I am gonna stop my whining and look up and be thankful because:

** My teenage son is doing better in life.
**My 11 year old is fit and in shape and has a passion for football and sports.
**My boss is now my friend
**My husband and I are in love. Something I am not sure I remembered a few mnts ago.
**My mother is now cancer free. ( go Nana)
**My youngest son sleeps in his own bed......Oh wait that still has not fully

I hope to have some great things to talk about this time next year. I pray for all my friends here and there and everywhere that they will have a creative, Happy , healthy 2008

When Jesus smiles upon us our heart is restored!!

I agree -- what a great post, Dawn. Hope this year unfolds as one in which you accomplish what you have set out to do (we've got a lot of similar goals). Happy New Year to you and your family!

Remember in your weakness HE is strong - I often feel the same things as you - but flying to your sister and taking that step is going to be so blessed by the Lord - you will see!! Happy New Year Dawn!

Happy New Year, Dawn! Love that you're looking thankfully at the year---that's the best way to head onward with a great attitude! :)

Thank you card!

This is a super quick and easy card today.  I love how The megaphone comes out of the paper.
