Potential


As Ben and I started looking back on this past year, we were somewhat shocked to realize all of the transformations and new things that have emerged. New friends, new jobs, new life for goodness sake! First steps, first days of school, first projects. A year is such a short unit, but it is full of single moments budding with potential. And on that occasion that we took full advantage of what the moment had to offer, we were time and time again surprised with unexpected beauty.

New Year's Eve can start to feel like an arbitrary landmark, and in truth, I imagine we will ring in the New Year with a sleepy house. But I can't help but marvel at all of this new growth and wonder, what changes will this coming year bring?

Looking forward to spending another year deepening friendships and reading about your growing family (and hopefully visiting more often as well :)) I agree that although Jan. 1st is an arbitrary marker it is a good time to look back, start fresh, or just continue on. This past year as brought many adventures with it and new freedoms. I have great hope for the coming year, as with every year, that life will continue to bring great love to those who seek it. I am thankful to have a fellow seeker in you and your family Adele.
