I Will Not Miss 2013

I woke up this morning to numerous bloggers posting recaps of 2013, their year in photos, posting about all the happy memories in the past 365 days. I'll be honest. 2013 was a sucky year from my point of view. It was a year full of battle, a year of chemo, radiation, and 3 surgeries that my mom had to endure, a year that involved moving twice in one year, a year where we almost lost our house to foreclosure, a year of losing 2 grandparents, and a year of losing my closest friends.

But it was also a year where my mom fought for her life and tremendously came out the other side cancer free, It was a year of adventure for my family and I moving to a new house, It was a year we thankfully sold my childhood home to wonderful people, it was a year where 2 of my grandparents got to meet Jesus, a year of making new friends, a year where I started doing something I absolutely love: blogging, a year where I found the college I want to attend, and it's been a year where I've grown closer to my loved ones.

I'm not complaining, I'm simply stating, that my family and I are happily waving goodbye to this hell of a year. But as I always say, everything happens for a reason. And I truly believe I would not be who I am, and I would not have the great relationships with my family members that I do now, If we hadn't gone through a little bit of a struggle first. I believe God gives us only as much as He knows we can take. Which is why I hope He blesses us with an easier upcoming year.

Happy New Years Eve everyone. Be safe and have fun tonight celebrating the end of a happy or sad year, whichever it may be. I know we will be raising a glass to a new year!

What are you looking forward to in the new year?

  4. Praise God for your mom's healing! I've actually heard that 2013 sucked for a lot of people, but I love the 2nd paragraph and how you can seriously look at all the bad and turn it around for good.
