Happy Birthday... I mean New Year


1 more hour, and this girl is officially a twenty-three year old. One year older, and hopefully one year wiser. It's funny having a birthday on New Years Eve, because not only can I reflect on my year as a 22 year old, but I can reflect on the year in general too. 2011 brought a lot of ups and downs. Probably more than ever before in my 23 years of life.

I moved away from Corvallis in 2011.
The last time I will live with my bes fren Adriana Jasso was in 2011 (and she got engaged in 2011!!)
I fell in love in 2011 for the first time
My brother got married in 2011
I became a Portland State Viking in 2011
I ran my first 1/2 Marathon in 2011

I have so much to look forward to in 2012! I pray it is a year that I can grow closer and closer with each day to my patient Heavenly Father. That I learn better how to have patience for others. That I think less about myself, and more about those around me. That I may be a better friend, daughter, sister. I look forward to 2012, and here are some reasons why:

I will be a college graduate in 2012
My best friend is getting married in 2012
My brother and sister in law might get pregnant in 2012
I will God willing run my first Marathon in 2012

Happy New Year my friends may you stick to your Resolutions! But also I pray that in this year (if you haven't already) you find a relationship with our living God. 2012 will bring ups and downs, that's just life. But if you have Jesus, you can get through anything! Be safe tomorrow everyone.

Love and the New Year Ahead,

-Kate
