Goodbye 2016 and Hello 2017

Goodbye 2016 and Hello 2017. I love the Holiday Seasons because we all intentionally quiet our busy days and spend time with people we love, it’s another beautiful day to celebrate the gift of Jesus, and it’s a reminder that time really magically slips between our fingers if we let it. People sometimes roll their eyes at Christmas Joy that seeps too early or the redundancy of failed resolutions but I love to believe that these honored days should and are suppose to be days that remind us of how we’re really suppose to spend each day.

Christmas and, very specifically for me, Jesus is a gift that beckons nothing back but reminds us that love should be given freely. New Years’ is a reminder that we can always be better versions of who we really are but time truly waits for no one.

I welcomed 2016 with open arms as 2015 was a painful year for me. But 2016 was a mix of bittersweetness that brought along very big, swooping life changes. Life’s been an utter blessing this year but it’s, also, stretched me the most emotionally. Needless to say, I’m excited for the promise of new beginnings in 2017.

And so, here it starts …
