Two Thousand Eleven

The year two thousand eleven.... wow, time flies!  I mean really, just 13 years ago back in the good old nineteen ninety eight I hadn't the faintest idea of what the year Two Thousand would hold I can't help but sing "In the year two thousand....." as I type.  Yes, I am a Conan O'Brian fan!

The year Two thousand was not even in my radar.  My thoughts were set on Nineteen-ninety nine. While others were stock piling food and generators awaiting Y2K, I was worried about getting into college, paying for said college by finding a decent paying job and saving for my wedding. Josh and I were engaged my Senior year of high school.  After dating for almost two years he popped the question prom night nineteen ninety eight. Soon we began working on our wedding plans but also life plan.  The big things; how long we would wait to have children.  The not so big things; who would do the banking, grocery shopping- all the good stuff you have to talk about before saying "I do". 

If you would have asked me where I saw us being and doing in twelve years you would have heard something entirely different than what we are doing today. I'm so grateful that God didn't listen to all the things we said we wanted but rather gave us just what we needed.

Now here we are, leaving 2010 behind and embracing 2011.  We have many plans for this year.  I have many plans....  Things that I want accomplished. Goals that I want to achieve but I am looking forward to what will unravel.  You see, we can plan our lives, make goals and even throw in some good intentioned new years resolutions.  This however does not guarantee us a thing. Life is life.  It's for the enjoyment, the challenges and the growth that come with it all.  Whatever it brings, you (I) alone am in control of how it shapes me, molds me and how I react to it. 

Here's to a wonderful 2011- and whatever it has in store!


  1. God has been very good to us and I am extremely happy with the life we have together!

  2. Isn't that so true, though. God knows SO much more than us what we need and what will make us happy. Thanks for the reminder to expect great things from our great God. Happy 2011 to you and your family!
