First things first, we ( me, mom, dad, jaycee sue, jaquel, tyler & kruzerboy) spent christmas in Cancun this year (last year)! It was awesome, and beautiful, and I'm ready to go back! Cute Jay needed a fun pic for her insta so this is what we came up with.
Kruze (Tom Cruise... is what the people at our hotel would call him) was the light of the vacation. He was so funny, and honestly so well behaved for a one year old.
Besides Jaquel's brand new iPhone 5s that got stolen the last day, and the bug bites the first day, and the greasy zip line, I would call this trip a huge success. I am so thankful to have parents that have spoiled me. I hope one day I get to treat them to a vacation.
As I think back to the past year, with Jaquel's health problems, a lot of it seems like a blur. We really missed out on a lot because of it. It certainly took its toll. I am so thankful she is FINALLY starting to feel a bit normal again here and there. I have really missed my best friend.
I have thought about all the good times that I have had in 2013, and I have to say the good far out weighs the bad. I went to 3 more concerts this year (Justin Beiber, George Strait, and Alan Jackson). I've been on more dates this year than ever before, and kissed way too many people.
I wasn't going to make any New Year's Resolutions, because I always hate when I fail. But Ive decided that with out Goals, we have nothing to work towards. There is no reason for us to push ourselves forward. My mom always says, if you forget to brush your teeth one night, you don't just quit all together. You wake up in the morning and "start over"! My mama is a smart lady.
So with that being said... here is 4 things I will do in 2k14:
1. Read the Book of Mormon. I have never in my life finished this by myself, and it embarrasses me to say that. How can I have such a testimony of a book that I've only read bits and pieces?! This is long over due, but completely necessary.
2. Read my Patriartical Blessing once a month. I know that this is a gift that has been given to guide me, and to help me with the decisions I have to make.
3. Have more conversations with my Father in Heaven. In the car when I'm driving, and in the morning while putting on my makeup. There is no reason I should have to wait until I'm on my knees.
4. Spent more time with family. Less technology. Less being lazy at home. I know my grandparents won't have too many more years left, and I want to make sure they know how much they are loved and appreciated.
Here's to you 2014!
