We made it through chapter 2018. Today is the first day of chapter 2019. Ready or not, it’s here. And we can’t (or we shouldn’t) look back. Yesteryear is gone.
The end of 2018 had alot of (what’s a good word?) trials for our family. If you don’t believe in spirituality, you won’t get this … but the devil was really trying to defeat us. It was one thing after another, after another, after another. It was truly a test of my patience. And I am not very patient anymore (especially as I have gotten older). I told my husband that there are reasons behind why ‘this’ wasn’t working out and ‘why’ this happened. That’s when it was time to fall back and let God work things out for us.
Our New Year’s Eve took a left turn off of our course. However, there is no need to worry about that either. It is what it is. And it definitely could have been alot worse. It happened and we can’t change it now. So why worry? Sometimes it’s easier said than done but nowadays, that is my motto. The goal now is to access our problem and take whatever course of action that is necessary to correct it.
I am thankful that my husband and I can communicate about everything. We discuss the ‘what ifs’ and the ‘can we’ so that we can go forward to make things happen. This is one of the many reasons why I love him. We brainstorm, talk about plans and make it work. And if it doesn’t work, we always go to another option. There is no one-sided conversation about what we are going to do. We both give 100% each.
So indeed, I am thankful, grateful and blessed for the opportunity to live to see another year. Despite the obstacles that are inevitable, we will still continue to press forward – no looking back. I hope everyone that reads this will be abundantly filled with greatness and prosperity in the new year.
Until next time… be blessed!
