Wow, I cant believe it has now been 10 months since my last post. Life has really picked up for me and I have lost track of time in the past year.
2007 was the best year of my life so far, its a new year and Im optimistic at what God can bring in this year. Since my last posting I have started a job with th City of Jacksonville working in Historic Preservation, moved into my new condo (which is now too small and we need a bigger house), gotten married, gotten pregnant, gave birth to my daughter Natalie Isabelle on Dec 1st (who was due to be born today, January 12th), and found the joy in life again that I had lost for a long time.
Its amazing how much has changed. Mike is now out of the Army and living with my grandparents in Illinois near his fiance Anna (they are to be married in 2009!). My sister is in her 2nd year of college and is my parents last child to leave the teen years. Jason is about to finally finish his bachelor’s degree after more than 10 years since he first entered college, his wife Mary is up for a major promotion and job transfer and Im really proud of the both of them. Mom and Dad are still being themselves and are absolutely thrilled to be grandparents…Natalie is already been spoiled by them.
Thomas and I havent known each other for a year yet and we feel like we have known each other for years. His business is thriving because God has blessed him. I feel truly blessed for all God has given me in the last 12 months and I will try to keep you updated more often as to my adventures in life 🙂
