It is now well into 2012 and we have so much to look forward to this year. 2011 was a year of ups and downs. There are moments in 2011 that hold a dear place in my heart from when Jalen started playing soccer (or professional grass picking) for the first time to when we learned how to say goodbye to someone who we never got to hold to our first annual Crohn's walk to when Jalen took off swimming without a vest. 2011 was a year that will never be forgotten, but 2011 also reminds us how God has impacted our lives. He has truly blessed us with so much. He constantly sends us reminders that He will never give us more than we can carry on our shoulders. If there is one thing that 2011 has taught me, it is that family is forever. Many people walk in and out of our lives, but there is one thing that remains the same, it's family. I don't know if I could've made it through 2011 without our family. They've been there to rejoice with us, wipe our tears, celebrate with us, and so much more. I am thankful and blessed to have two wonderful families that I couldn't thank you enough for all that you do. Here's to 2012 that is filled with so much from a Disney World trip, Neriah (our new neice), Jalen playing basketball, and a wedding. God continues to bless us and I thank Him every day for what He's given us.
