As we start a new year, I am amazed at the blessings of 2017. This past year has been a year growth, professionally and personally.
My family practice grew. I found my rhythm to streamline documentation (i.e. paperwork). I was blessed with awesome staff and patients. As an added bonus my oldest daughter came to work at the clinic. This has been a blessing, seeing her every day and watching her grow into a professional young woman makes my heart happy.
After many years of discussing and pushing my oldest to coach,
my son and I opened Faultline Athletics. During the remodeling of the building and installing the equipment, I could not have been prouder of family and the work they did together.
My youngest son who loves anything with wheels started the build on his rock crawler and Black Sheep Rock Racing was born. We plan to start racing in 2018.
Our family lost a friend and a valuable part of our business team in March, but we have found new footing and continued to grow our boarding business. Bed and Biscuit Boarding has also proven to be a valuable resource for assisting the local humane society with housing.
We have been able to keep my Dad in our home, his mental decline has continued but we have been blessed with an awesome people who stay with Dad during the day and help keep my house and pets clean, safe, and healthy.
My youngest daughter and her husband did not let a chronic illness slow them down. Watching them take the vacations of their dreams, building a life tog
ether makes proud and thankful they have each other.
Our middle son who was driving over an hour to work got a job locally. To some, a new job does not seem like a big deal, but having him home with his boys is a blessing.
My husband and I both accepted board positions with volunteer organizations we feel are beneficial to our community. We both believe as did Mahatma Gandhi, we should “be the change that you wish to see in the world.”
I can say 2017 was a good year for my family but it was also a very busy year. As I begin 2018 I am going to focus on the word, Simplify. With Simplify as my One Little Word for 2017, I’m looking forward to a simple, intentional, meaningful, purposeful, life-giving, impactful, focused year.
I hope you will check back, I would feel blessed to share my simplified life with you. Leave a comment to let me know how you plan to spend 2018.
