Psalm 127:3-5

Behold children are a gift of the LORD,
The fruit of the womb is a reward.
Like arrows in the hand of a mighty warrior, so are the children of one's youth.
How blessed are those whose quiver is full of them

Such an interesting year

This year involved one of the hardest ten weeks of my life with a back injury followed by surgery andI a long recovery. While I would never want to relive it, I will say it did give me such a great appreciation for even the daily mundane things of life. When you can't do laundry, you wish you could. When you can't cook a meal, you wish you could. When you can't clean your own house, you wish you could. Life is all in the perspective.

While that struggle seemed so great it is entirely overshadowed and barely remembered by the amazing joy we received in late July when we found out we were expecting our 5th child and in November we were given the most incredible health report ever on our sweet Serene whose MRI came back perfect after her 2010 MRI showed the beginnings of a tumor. A miracle!

What a full circle life has taken over this year. Major lows, major highs. We leave 2011 with a lot of things learned and a larger view of what really counts in life and we enter 2012 with the anticipation of welcoming another sweet baby girl into our hearts and home. My heart is full, how could I ask for more!

Happy New Year!!!
