You have been full of hard lessons. Moments of regret. Moments of wishing I had it all together. Moments of imperfection and flaw. Moments of truth. Moments of crying. Moments of laughter. You have held some of my most precious memories. You have given me hope, and desperation. You have taught me how to let go and how to hold tight. You have taught me how to trust and defend. You have taught me what is worth fighting for. You have given me a glimpse of what is to come.

You have shown me that love conquers all.

Through tears, rage, and courage I have come to see all that I need to let go of. To put the past behind me. There were moments that have transformed me. It was a tough, dark road this year. I am ready to leave it behind. I am ready for the next step. I am ready to move. To take a leap of faith. I am ready to make changes. I am ready to lean on God. I am ready to seek Him and I am ready to start loving myself again.

I am so thankful to have a husband who is gentle, kind, and loving. Children who love me full force without reserve and who are always willing to give me kisses when I ask for them. And for a God who is faithful. 2013 will not define who I am, but it will be nearly a glimpse on the soft pages that write my heart and tell my story. It was a hard year of finding myself as a mother of 3. A tender place to seek God and to lean not on my own understanding.

I am ready. 2014. I am ready.
