Given the fact that my one year resolution has now come to an end, and the fact that we are now in the second year, and the fact that I really didn't post every day, I thought it was fitting that the blog get a new name. As I go into the next year, my focus will shift as well. I will still be the memory keeper. There will still be lots of cute pictures, and I am quite sure many stories of our adventures (and misadventures!) But as I strive this year to become a better, more spiritually grounded mother, wife, and teacher, this blog will also be a place for reflection, sharing, celebration, and I am quite sure, the occasional vent as well.
As I sit here on New Year's Eve, in my pajamas, trying to stay awake until midnight despite the fact that Josh turned out all the lights (You know you are getting old when...) it is my hope for my family and myself that when I look back on 2010, I will see how we have grown closer to each other and closer to the Lord. That we have handled success and failure with the same grace. That we each have grown in our walk with the Lord. That our household and our family were indeed "living stones," representing our Lord to the world in both word and deed.
Happy New Year!
