January in review

1/ God bless the libarary 2/ messes and smiles 3/ beauty in the kitchen 4/ "Look mama I made a winter sun. It's blue because it's cold." 5/ Becoming the Green Goblin 6/ My guy who hasn't been napping for months, now takes naps 7/ He's got this "quiet time" thing down

It was a good month. Coming back to Waco after our Christmas travels felt good. We had gotten the first semester of Cody's program under our belts, had made friends, and felt generally at home in this new city. January felt like a fresh start to really do things well in Waco and be more intentional. I started my business with doTERRA at the beginning of December, but really launched things in January when I taught my first class. February will bring more classes, more learning, more growing, and I'm excited about it. I feel like I'm working toward something, and it's helping me be more content with where I am right now in my life. Sometimes I feel like I'm waiting for this to change or that to change, and then things will be good, but the truth is, we're all waiting. We're aliens here and the feeling of longing for something better is the reality of our lives. I'm grateful that our student, far-from-home lifestyle reminds me of this daily. Praise God for new beginnings, old beginnings, and all the in-betweens.
