Hello 2021 Goodbye 2020

I almost did write this post. As we all know 2020 has been one for the birds. I’ve personally gone through some of the scariest moments of my life. The uncertainty of this time has added a lot of extra stress and anxiety to my life. But, in addition to chaos, 2020 brought smiles, giggles, slobber and a little girl that I didnt know I wanted.

Piper will be 10 months old next week. These last 10 months have been rough at moments yet amazing at most. I dont want this post to be filled with the dreadfulness that we have all come to know. If you need any of that look back at my older posts where I talk about my terrible post partum depression.

Usually my New Years posts are filled with reflections, but the only positive reflection I have is Piper ElizabethAnne Jones. And she is something to look forward to as well.

We dont know what 2021 will bring us. If nothing else this year has taught us that. But we do know that whatever it is our Father God will bring us through it.

I pray you all have an amazing New Years eve. We are going to some friends house and have a bonfire and play some games. A little different one again than recent years, but I wouldn’t have it any other way! Be Blessed WordPress!

Last Day of Quarantine!

Today if officlly our last day in quarantine. Yesterday Tj and I went and got tested and thankfully we both tested negative. It took us all day to get it done. But, its over.

Today I plan on shampooing my two area rugs, working on more laundry, and doing a few things in Piper’s room. We finally got it all cleaned out and that brought on some unexpected emotions. Her room was Mark’s room. While we were cleaning it up we found some more of his things. Part of me hurts because he isn’t here to see how much she has grown and he would be so proud of Eli. Mark loved Christmas time. I think he would really enjoy the decorations that Eli put up for Piper. But, i’ve got to focus on the good in all of this. My baby is finally going to have her own space for the first time in her life. I’m excited to get it all together.

Reflecting back on these last two weeks I am so thankful for this time that i’ve had with my two boys and Piper. Even though it was a little inconvenent on some parts, I belive God knew what he was doing when he made it all come together like it did. He knew that we needed this down time together. We got so much done around this house. We would have never had time for all this other wise. We started watching a series on Netflix called Virgin River. I highly recomend it.

Tonight I may step out and go hang with some of my girl friends. And tommorow I am getting up early and going to a community yard sale and try to get rid of some of Pipers things. Then I will go to a baby shower and enjoy some much needed fellowship. Sunday I think the boys are going golfing. Then Monday its back to work and school. But only for a couple of more weeks! Be blessed WordPress!!
