Our Daily Blessings

Happy New Year’s Eve, Eve Everybody!!! We’ve been busy taking the Christmas decorations down and cleaning the house that way it’s all sparkly clean for 2017. It amazes me that the year has gone by so fast. But I guess the older you get the faster that it goes… Here are some blessings from this past week.

1. Daddy’s done working for the year!!

We love chilling out as a family watching movies, playing games, and eating really good food. My Dad is finally done working for 2016. He’s got a few days off and then heads back in early January. We plan to enjoy them to the fullest making quite a few memories along the way.

2. New Year’s Eve Celebrations

In my family the holidays are always a big deal. We make them a family affair, and the start of a new year is no exception. Ususally we make some sort of themed meal or finger foods to munch on throughout the night. We play a few of our favorite games, put a movie in and watch the ball drop at midnight, This year we have decided to do a Mexican theme. We’re going to have Nachos, Taquitos, and ice cream.

3. The clean slate of a new year

I love the start of a new year. The idea that it’s a new page in a brand new book that we have yet to read. It reminds me of this Bible verse in Lamentations. “The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness” (Lamentations 3:22-23 ESV).

4. Pingpong

Pingpong paddles and ballsI’m also not much of a sports-y person. I’m not very coordinated so, sports are not my strong suit. But, we got a pingpong table as a family gift for Christmas this year, and to be honest; it’s actually kind of fun. I have a feeling we will be playing quite a bit of ping-pong tomorrow. Something that I need to keep reminding myself of is that you don’t have to be perfect before you do something. The important thing is that you have fun doing it.

What are some of the blessings that you have noticed in your life this past week? I’d love for you to share them in the comments below. Also, what’s something that you are looking forward to in 2017? I’m looking forward to really mastering my camera and taking better pictures.

Until next time,
