It's funny how this time of year causes us to reflect and look forward to what's ahead. It's funny because January 1st is really just a date. But in it lies so much symbolism and hope.
Every year Rich and I set quarterly goals where we review what happened over the past 3 months and set new/more goals for the next 3. It is so fun at the end of the 4th quarter to look back over the year and actually see where we've come and what we've accomplished.
We don't know anyone who hasn't had a pretty crappy year. Us included. We've been looking forward to the end of 2009 since, oh about June! But in reflecting back, God did some amazing things for us.
Let's start with the little Waller. Almost every night we look at Tayden sleeping in his bed and are so thankful for his health and sweet spirit. He makes us laugh every day and are really enjoying the age he's at now. He's talking up a storm and tells us all about it. It's fascinating to watch the little wheels turn as he thinks and processes everything in his world.
