As part of my New Year's Resolution I wanted to begin saying "Yes!" to more invitations that we receive and to enjoy life again despite what I may, or may not, have in my life. I often immediately tell people that we cannot join in on their gatherings and then sit home on those days wishing I had gone. BUT in January I successfully said "YES!" to two outings and enjoyed a Birthday in Bloomington for Laura Kat's birthday and an evening out in Franklin for a Franklin Fire Fundraiser. And guess what, I had fun! :) It's nice to be the kind of person who isn't afraid to say yes and to enjoy life a little. A wonderful change in our 2011.
This month we're looking forward to another big change. Matt, Jenn, Katherine, and Elisabeth will be moving from their home in South Dakota to Camp Lakeview! We are so excited to have our brother and sister close to us and to share in the growing up of Kati and Elli. While we've enjoyed letter writing and Skype we're going to enjoy having them here even more!
My February has been filled with Lakeview love so far. I had dinner out in Columbus with Rosie and we ran into Cricker while there. I spent last Sunday with Miss Hannah Jung at church, lunch, and then a two hour talk that I had really needed.
I thank God for the changes in my life and my attitude already this year.
