The Sunset of 2014

Here we are.

The last day of 2014.

365 days

of laughs,

of tears,

of smiles,

of memories.


     This past week we traveled for Christmas, we got back Saturday, Sunday was of course church, Monday my aunt came to visit for the day, and Tuesday my grandparents arrived.  We are leaving tomorrow for Texas.  So stress is basically the name of the game.  The first thing I did this morning after getting dressed was wash dishes.  We were running around all day trying to clean up, take down Christmas decorations, and stress about getting ready for our trip.  Yesterday I had to tear out a blanket that I was crocheting that I had almost 4,000 stitches in it.  4,000!  One of our dogs who is really disobedient and dumb as a box of rocks went running out into the front yard barking at our neighbor, and so I had to run out there and carry her back, which equaled to getting dirt stains all over my brand new white jacket.  We left the house and I forgot my cell phone.  It was a good day.

It was a good day because I had a family and a house to have decorations in.

It was a good day because I know how to crochet, and I have a second chance.

It was a good day because I still have clothes to wear and dishes to eat off of and a cellphone to use.

It was a good day because I was alive with air to breathe.

It was a good idea because I live in a free country.

It was a good day because I have a Savior.

   That is the attitude I want to carry into the New Year.  We only got one life, guys.  One day at a time; we are never promised tomorrow.  You will never have today again.  The words said, the thoughts, the actions, the smiles, and the tears.  We only have one life.  Let's make it one worth living.

~ Love,
 Enjoy New Year's, ya'll! <3
