And so it begins.....

The end of one year and the birth of another. What does 2009 hold for us???? No one knows, I can only pray that it brings health and happiness to all. Peace and contentment with what we cannot change and a deeper understanding of all that God has in store for us.

2008 was a good year for the most part for the George family, Wayne started a new job, and moved us across country. We left old friends and made many new friends. We have learned what it means to be truly on our own....no family down the street to babysit, or eat Sunday dinner with. While that in itself can be somewhat sad, we have made some wonderful new friends and have truly been blessed with an abundance of new relationships, both for Carson and for Wayne and I.

This was the year of trials and tribulations as well, but we are so much richer because what we have endured. God has seen us though some heartaches, that I would not want anyone to bear. We have learned to be optimistic, and see the silver lining in situations that seemed too deep to get through.

Carson started Kindergarten and is thriving in the structured school environment. Wayne is loving the commuter lifestyle and looks forward to his "me" time everyday on the train to and from work. I rejoined the workforce and am really enjoying teaching....so much so that I will be teaching full time starting Monday for an Autism class until the middle of April.

Today, we say goodbye to 2008, and I know that 2009 will bring many changes for all of us. I am praying that it brings peace and happiness, and a fullness of God that was previously unknown to you.

Today we packed up all the loot that Santa left for us in Texas, and started shipping it across country. Carson is now bored...at least he tells me that...He is also ready to sleep in his own bed, and see Petey, the dog, who by the way has spent the last week and a half at a doggie resort, and is at this moment getting his nails done. We have had a tremendous time here in Texas, and while I miss everyone, friends and family alike, but it will be good to get home on Friday.
