2010 was a very good year for us and we experienced many blessings.
However, 2011 promises to be a very exciting year as well!
First of all, there will be A LOT more scenes like this one happening...
...Jeremy with his other women! (the cows, not Cambree!!)
As of March 1, 2011 Jeremy will no longer be working at People's Bank and will be working FULL-TIME at Broken Arrow Ranch. For those of you who don't know, Broken Arrow is the ranch that we own with Jeremy's parents. It has always been a dream of Jeremy's to be able to run cattle full time with his dad. We started trying to make that happen 10 years ago when we got married. And here we are in 2011 seeing that come to light! It's pretty AWESOME!
Since Jeremy will be at the ranch all the time, it only makes sense that we would do this...
BUILD A NEW HOUSE!!!!
We are still very much in the infant stages of the house planning and building, but we are confident that by the end of 2011 we will be living in a house like this one up on a hill at the ranch!!
Other things we are looking forward to in 2011:
- Cambree Jane turns 5...Holy Cow, how did this happen?
- Jeremy Dean will turn 34...there are no words.
- Sara RaShelle turns 30...and she doesn't feel a day over 21!! (Don't worry I plan to blog extensively about my transition to my thirties!!)
- Jeremy and Sara will celebrate their 11th anniversary...not sure what the "celebration" will entail!
- Westynn Cole will turn 2...didn't I just find out I was pregnant with this little rascal?
- Preston Dean will turn EIGHT....WHAT?
- A trip to Houston...why Houston? Aunt Janelle and Uncle Jeff are moving there next month.
- Selling our house...so we can move to the ranch!
The other day as I was taking Westynn to the bath and he was laughing so loud I just took a moment and thought about how GLAD I am that I am not in control of my life, but that God is! Had it been up to Jeremy and I we would have missed out on one of the most incredible gifts in our life. It truly does amaze me that God knew just the right thing we would need at this time in our lives. Westynn is just the perfect addition to our family and I don't even want to think how empty our life could be right now!
It is also INCREDIBLE to think that we have been working for a decade to make a way for Jeremy to work with his Dad full time and run the ranch and GOD is just making our dreams come true and making all the pieces of the puzzle fit together so easily. Sometimes it is easy to think how "lucky" we are, but it is like I told Jeremy last night..."Luck has nothing to do with it. That is why I am trying very hard not to take it for granted and not to hold on to things too tightly. We definitely have to remember that none of the things that have been given to us recently are ours to begin with. The tighter we try to hold on to them, the more likely we are to loose them."
Sounds like I am really smart huh? Just kidding! It was more of a reminder to both of us. That is why I am so sure that this year will hold many things for us that we have no idea about, but that God has planned for us! Isn't that amazing?
So, BRING IT 2011!!! I am soooooooo ready to see what you hold for each of us!!
