A friend of mine posted this video and I haven't been able to stop watching it. This family's love inspires my heart in so many ways. Take a moment and watch.

Hello 2013

posted on: Tuesday, January 1, 2013

Hello 2013. Something in my deepest heart is pretty excited about you. 2012 was a year of growing up, learning what it really means to cherish and to trust. I learned to hope again, to find beauty  and I truly feel like I settled into motherhood. My soul rooted itself in friendships, and found a sweet security, safety and rest in my growing little tribe of boys.  I can't even begin to describe the heaven we find in  our  kids. I've had a growing sense of awe at this precious quiet of love in my life, I'm overwhelmed by it. 2012 was harshest of bitter and the purest of sweet. I've never felt as much pain, and I've never experienced as much joy as I did these past twelve months. There are so many stories that were never written, and moments that could never be captured. It was a heck of a year.

Cheers to simplicity, and to love. Here's to newness, to expectancy of good and the joy of all the days that are waiting to make us know the sweetness of life. This is going to be a precious and fabulous year.
