It doesn’t feel like the last day of the year. Really it is just another day on the calendar, but to many, including me it signifies closing a chapter and opening a new one. Out with the old, in with the new. 

A year ago, I was working out the last few days of my notice. Making plans for a new job, and heaving a sigh of relief that all of Eddie’s tests were normal. As I reflect back, it has been a year of change, a year of stress and fear, a year of joy, and a year of new beginnings. 

When cancer come back into our lives, it was one of the hardest things we have ever had to deal with. Watching someone I love so deeply go through surgery and chemo is hard. What keeps me going is how positive he is through all of this, his amazing doctors, and hope for the future. 

It has been a year of change with 2 new jobs. I have met so many people and get to do such cool things, but I also miss my team at Christian HELP and are glad we have stayed connected. I have had to let go of some things too and realize when someone takes your place, the vision is now theirs, not yours. While I miss the job and the people, I know it was time for me to move on. 

Life keeps moving toward, 1 year at a time. I can’t wait to see what 2016 holds. It will be a milestone birthday for me and I will become an empty nester. God has plans for me in the next year and I am looking forward to all it has to offer. 

Here is to a happy, healthy, and prosperous new year!
