2012 and New Year Wishes

Today is the last day of 2012; it is hard to believe the year has gone by so quickly!  As I look back on this year I remember the many highs and lows, the struggles and tough times, the heartache and pain from the choices of others and myself.  I hope I have learned from these events, and I hope others have, too.

This year has been an interesting one for me.  In many respects it has forced me to come to terms with my childhood.  Some of these things have allowed me to heal and others have made me realize I would like to return to the country life.  I would like to have land to pass down to my children.  I would like to have a garden and animals.  I am pretty sure I still dislike snakes, however!  While I love our home, I would also love to have more space between us and our neighbors.

I hope the coming year brings healing to our nation.  We are divided on some key issues and I fear we may be headed in a direction that would hurt the future of our nation.  I read this quote the other day and I fear it will prove true: "America will never be destroyed from the outside.  If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves."  (

I have started a new study book over the book of Ruth.  So far, I am really enjoying it.  My goal this year is to read more study books and devotional readers.  I have not been doing a very good job with my journey with the Lord lately.  We need to find a new church to call home and I hope the search goes well and that we can find a place where each member of the family is happy.

I am also hoping this year will bring growth to my business.  I am an independent consultant for the Scentsy Family.  I love the opportunities Scentsy has provided for me and my family!  I will be forever grateful!  This year I hope to help others to experience the same life changing blessings.  I love helping people and providing for my customers has been very satisfying for me.  This year I hope to help others grow their businesses and be there for them to support them through those moments when they have to step outside of their comfort zone.

As we welcome in the new year I wish you all many blessings, and please be safe!
