Josh

Sunday, January 3, 2010

17 months old

What's new at our house? Josh has learned to sign please....this results in him thinking that if he says please, he gets whatever he's asking for...which is very much not true. :)

He's also practicing using a fork, which makes for an interesting mess at dinner time.

I can't believe my baby is almost 1 1/2!

Happy New Year!

Some people have a whole list of resolutions, or "refreshments" as my friend Rose calls them. I don't...my wishes and goals for the year are the same as always. Simple to say, but hard to obtain. I want to grow closer to God, be a better wife and mother, and reach out more to people.

Of course, I pray for a job for Chris this year, health to our parents and grandparents, many of whom are struggling with serious health issues, and continued growth and health for Joshua, who will turn 2 in 2010. I pray for those I love whose lives, hearts, or minds are broken down - that they will find faith and the answers in the loving arms of God.

I want to honor Him with my time, talents, resources, and abilities. I want to nurture relationships above things. I want to invest in the people and activities that have eternal significance.
