Unlock this door, step carefully inside.
Look around, take it all in.
Breathe deeply this new air; it may not seem important, but another chapter in your life is about to begin.
Its all new - you're not sure what to think.
Everything that happened last year - what lies behind these doors?
New things are bound to happen, new steps will be taken.
Slip your hand in mine. I promise, I won't let go.
You mean the world to me, so much that you'll probably never know.
I love you, I miss you, and I'll stay by your side.
So let's walk in together, let's be be bold and not try to hide.
We'll bravely stride forward, yes, we'll even have ups and downs -
but with you by my side, there will be more laughs than frowns.
So, take my hand. Don't let it go. I love you, yes, you - always, you should know.

The end of the year is at hand... I can hardly believe it all.
2012 has been an amazing year; I've felt like I've experienced more, grown a little more. It seems like the beginning of the year was only yesterday... and now it's coming to a close.
I will admit that my relationship with Christ wasn't great in 2012... I hit a hard spot in my life and it drug me down. But for the past month and a half, things have gotten far better. Life suddenly seems a little bit brighter and hopeful.
Journeying through the year has been an interesting ride; so many special things taking place and changing.
I've sadly overlooked the little things this year, and I intend to remedy that in 2013.
As this year comes to a close, I hope we can all look back and reflect on everything that's taken place. All of the good things and the bad things. I'm looking forward to a new year - a new adventure.
Look to Christ no matter what darkness surrounds you, and as a friend showed me yesterday... "Trust in Him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us." (Psalm 62:8)
Great things begin happening when we keep our trust in Him.
Please continue praying for me this year as I work hard to take steps forward - I'll need everything you can give. And I'll keep praying for you, that you would all be strong and never lose hope in our Lord.
Thank you so much for being readers of my blog, and thanks to my family for teaching me the things I need to know. Thanks to all of my friends who have encouraged me, tried me, and often times shoved me when I needed it. :)
You're all gems in the treasure-store of my heart, and I wouldn't give anything to replace you.
I love you all.
2012, we say goodbye. 2013... here we go, one more time.
Let's move forward with confident steps and a trusting heart.
