For New Year's Eve 2013 my aunt Carol invited the husb and myself to a Murder Mystery Dinner Party down in Castlerock. We were nervous and excited-we only knew four people in attendance! But it was great because we had to become our characters, which apparently pretending to be someone else in front of strangers is a lot less nerve-wracking than just being yourself! haha.
It was indeed a fun night, and I'm glad we went out and met all those sweet folks.
I suppose this time of year calls for some resolutions. New goals to help shape us into the person we want to be, crowded gyms the first few days of the new year. It all seems kind of funny to me, as I've never really seen a new year as anything but a change from one day to another. But this time feels different. Maybe that's because 2013 was truly the worst year of my life. I've never experienced so much doubt, depression, heartache, pain, you name it. Hopefully I'll always be able to say it was the worst year, because if that can be beaten then I just don't know how I'd survive! Luckily I had my wonderful husband by my side throughout it all, and even more comforting, my savior. I've never been closer to Him, and I've never been more grateful for His love and atoning sacrifice for me. I can honestly say the gospel of Christ is the biggest, most wonderful blessing in my life, and I yearn for everyone to experience the peace and happiness it brings!
So while I do have many 'resolutions' this year, my main goal is to deepen my relationship with my Heavenly Father and His son. By doing this I know that everything else in my life can be achieved. And I'm incredibly grateful for that.
Cheers to a brand new year
