We made it to Florida and I can honestly say I’ve never been so happy to get somewhere. I joked with the kids though that I should not be allowed to live across the street from an outlet mall, complete with a Carrabas and a Chick-Fil-A!
We have spent several spring breaks in Destin when the kids were younger, so this already feels familiar. We don’t get to move to our final spot until Jan. 2 but I’m willing to wait a few days for this view.
There is so much I want to accomplish in 2018. And, yes, I’m obviously still fighting the battle between being and doing and probably should be asking myself what I’m supposed to accomplish in 2018.
I sent out holiday emails the other day with a picture of our kids taken a few days before Christmas. I will include it here for those of you whose email addresses I don’t have or who I inadvertently missed. The blessing of family is still the first thing that comes to mind when I think of the good things in my life. God has been amazingly gracious, and I love them more than they will ever know, or could ever express, even with a million emojis!
I feel like there has been a lot of focus lately about living in the moment and it’s beginning to sink in that the present is all I have. So I’m praying for wisdom in 2018 and to be a blessing to everyone I meet.
