So a lot of people are so ready for 2017 because their 2016 wasn’t so good but my 2016 was pretty awesome so I wanted to write about it. We were able to welcome our beautiful daughter Katherine Obadiah into this world (albeit a few months early). We got to experience NICU life, it wasn’t the most exciting but it definitely taught us a lot about ourselves, each other and our God. We found a new church that we love, and our marriage has improved exponentially!
I’m a few classes away from graduating with my Master’s Degree. I found a job that helped contribute to the house hold. We found a wonderful person to take care of Kobi for us while we both have to work and she’s become a friend and a huge part of Kobi’s life! I was able to spend six months at home with Kobi, we were able to go to Cali for a wedding, Ohio for the Fourth of July, and Nevada for Christmas! Not to mention Kobi was able to see her uncles, aunt and cousins for Thanksgiving!
Just seeing Kobi grow and learn has been so worth it! Learning to communicate effectively with William has been great! It hasn’t always been easy or fun but as we learn, things gets better and we’ve definitely given each other more grace and learned to value each other.
Jesus allowed us to maintain great friendships this year and establish new ones and we were given a car right when we needed it. We both learned what makes us happy and what we need to do in 2017 to maintain. And we are genuinely excited to see what the Lord is going to do with us and through us in this coming year!
If you’re 2016 didn’t turn out so well. My prayer is that 2017 will be that much better and those things that were taken from you would be restored back to you in this new year!
