As I look back on 2014 I have many emotions come back at once.
There have been times of challenge, like getting through grad school while working full time. There have been times of extreme heartache and heartbreak, like when my best friend's husband passed away unexpectedly. There have been times that took my breath away, like seeing those 2 lines on the pregnancy test. And there have been times that reminded me of God's amazing love, like hearing Marisa's heartbeat for the first time.
2014 has brought great sorrow and great joy. It has been a true Rollercoaster ride.
As I look towards 2015, I look with excitement in my heart and a smile on my face. I know that it will come with its own set of challenges and adventures- times of sorrow and of joy. But, with 2015 comes the time when I see Marisa's sweet face for the first time and get to watch Milly and Shelby take on the roles of big sisters. What I'm most excited for is seeing Jake become a daddy to a two-legged. I know he will be amazing.
I want to take this time to thank all of my friends, family, and coworkers for their love and support in 2014. You have truly brought me so much joy.
Thank you especially to Jake and the MilShelb, the three that fill my heart and keep me going every day. You love me more than I deserve and I am forever greatful for your love.
Here's to another year and many more adventures!
