The biggest being I had a baby.
I became a mother. I'm now a mum. I have a son. A ten-month-old son who keeps me smiling, keeps me on my toes, keeps me a little mental, keeps me close to the Cross and keeps me in a continual state of "Lord, I am so thankful - but please help me!"
2013 was a monumental year.
I also got mild postnatal-depression which, for about four months after he was born, made life a little harder and a little darker. But by God's grace, I got through. With His help in it's myriad of forms. A great husband. A great family. A good doctor. Great medicine. Lots of prayer. And lots of talking.
And, by the growing belly below my peripheral vision, I'd say that 2014 is going to be a big year too. That's right! We have another bubby growing away! Yes, Mr J. is going to be 16-months-old when his little brother or sister is born. And yes, I am a tad apprehensive about my postnatal feelings. But I have come a long way and I have learnt so much since the moment my midwife placed my boy in my arms.
So here I am. Ready to start a new year, with a new blog and with a new vision for my writing. I hope you can join me as I keep going along this way. I hope you and I can be friends and offer support and mutual encouragement to one another. And I hope, even in the most miniscule of ways, the God of Heaven would be glorified by the words I write.
By His Mercy,
