All over the blogosphere writers are highlighting their top 10 posts and projects; they are celebrating good things that happened throughout the year; bloggers are glossing over (and linking back to) the rough patches.
Good for them.
This baby blogger doesn’t quite have enough words published to warrant a full recap of the year. I’ve been faithfully blogging just about six months now. This is my 56th post. My blog has had approximately 6000 views and when I link my entry to my facebook, I have an average of 100 readers. That’s not too terrible, but not something to brag about just yet either.
I’m really glad I started blogging and plan to write more frequently in 2011. I enjoy feedback from my readers, the process of putting my thoughts into print and the record I am keeping. I love reading blogs and it’s fun to be on the other side of the publish button, too.
Here’s my paragraph of recapping 2010…maybe next year I’ll be so cool I will link to previous entries as I review the year. Maybe.
I began with a renewed energy for serving the Lord at The Little Light House. I had spent the better part of 2009 in a cloud (with varying degrees of thickness) of sadness. My focus was back on being grateful for the many blessings I have. I soon learned that I would be going to China, twice. Amazing! Rob and I considered adoption through the state of Oklahoma and then began our journey to receiving children in our home. I have slowly and almost steadily begun the process of preparing myself, my home and my family for this upcoming blessing. I got three new nieces and a goddaughter, too.
I’m very excited about 2011. I have personal goals and family goals. I’ll be making a bit of a career change in order to better serve my family and my school. I’ll strive to be a better wife, stepmom, daughter, sister, aunt, friend, teacher and follower of Christ. And this year? Well,…
this will be the year that someone calls me Mom.
and I can hardly wait!
