twenty-eleven was an interesting year.

twenty-eleven was a long year.  it seems like the easy parts of life are so far away behind me.

but nobody said it was easy.  nobody said it would be simple.  no one ever said twenty-eleven would end like this.

but it is.  twenty-eleven is ending on a low note.  i thought it would just be like every other year: we live our easy life and just enter a new year like that.  but this year, it feels so wonderful to leave this year behind.

a lot happened this year.  a lot i didn't even talk about here.

my best friends moved away.

the one thing i ever wanted was taken from me.

i think katie davis said it best: "Jesus wrecked my life, shattered it to pieces, and put it back together more beautifully."  i'm just waiting for the putting it back together part to happen.

maybe 2012 will be filled with joy.  maybe 2011 will bring fulfillments.  but maybe it won't.

all i know is... i am overjoyed to say goodbye to 2011.  goodbye pain.  goodbye sadness.  hello new friends.  hello new adventures.  hello new year.

I guarantee you have grown so much this year, more than you know. Unfortunately, we can't grow without pain. God promises us that in the Bible. We have all been put through the refiners fire and we will all come out stronger in the end and GOD will get the glory! I have a feeling that 2012 is going to bring some good things to our family....just in HIS time. :)
