Okay, this year has been wonderful and exciting! I've lived through some hard times and had some of the happiest in my life. God had a wonderful plan in showing me what he wanted me to do with his gifts that he blessed with. I'm thankful for a job that I LOVE, new friends, new fellowship in my faith, and new beginnings. God has even bigger plans for 2012 and I couldn't be anticipating them anymore than I am. For every season.......
