Everything Happens For A Reason

I have lived by the words "Everything Happens For A Reason" for a long time. I firmly believe these words. I know we all have freedom of choice and we can choose our paths in life but I still believe that God is driving things and there is a reason for the outcomes; sometimes simply a life lesson that needs to be learned. 

By all means life hasn't always been easy. I have had some major bumps in the road, major highs and lows. I am blessed for each of them though. Each bump, high, low, hill to climb or pit I feel like I am falling into has made me the person I am. 

2012 Has had some all time highs and some all time lows. This year has been a year of of joy and happiness; also a year of loss, tears and sorrow. 2013 our little trio is starting off with some major changes, struggles and challenges but I believe that we will pull through and hope that it is going to be a great year. Essentially we are starting over; not fresh but a new beginning. 

I think today I will enjoy reflecting on our year and all of the highlights because tomorrow is a new year, a new start, a new beginning and for us a new change - 2013 Will be the year that WE MAKE IT!

On a side note: This blog will replace our previous family blog, it will also replace our Arizona blog because even though we will remember all of those good times we are starting over - so it was fitting to create a new blog where I can share our new lives, the up and the downs. 

Be Happy, Be Safe, Be Thankful, Be Grateful, Be Strong. HAPPY New Year!
