Christmas 2009

Well, Christmas has come and gone.  Yesterday as I was cleaning up the mess Santa left behind, I asked CV, "Did we really just celebrate Christmas?"  I can't believe its already over. It seems like just yesterday I was counting down the days until we go to Disney.  Now I'm counting the days until a new year starts.  2010!!  WOW!!

10 years ago I graduated High School!
9 years ago I met Chris.
8 years ago I gave birth to my first baby boy, Johnathan Brock
7 years ago I got married  (yeah you read that right!)
6 years ago I graduated from College! (on time and with a 3.0 GPA)
5 years ago I moved to Dallas Tx to be a ballers wife.
4 years ago I gave birth to Witten Macabe  (in August)
3 years ago I became the co-director of Cypress Baptist Church Mom's Day Out
2 years ago I gave birth to our grand finale....on my birthday I might add.  Sweet Emmi!
1 year ago I became me!

I feel like I have finally become the woman God intended me to be. I had different plans and dreams for myself. I dreamt of becoming a Child-Life Specialist at St. Judes Children's Hospital.  I do love kids and have a weakness for ones who are battling disease; and one day I do plan on visiting St. Judes and bringing gifts and God's Word in abundance! But God had different plans for me. His plan for Tracey are 3 little (Well not really that little) ones that live under my own roof.  I praise His name in thankfulness for letting them all be healthy as horses.  It's my duty to teach them love, kindness and about our creator, my Lord!
God intended me to be a young momma, a young wife, a young boss to older (much wiser) women. I have learned from those women and I pray they have learned from me.  I feel young in years but old in experiences.  In 27 years, I have learned ALOT!
I see big changes in my future.  Some closer than expected. Some seem too far away.  However, time doesn't stop for us to catch up with it. I hope in the next ten years, I can learn to be a better wife, a better mother, a better daughter, a better friend.  But most of all I hope to be a better testament of the love and grace of our Savior, Jesus Christ!

Here's to more love, more giggles and more memories.  Here's to 2010!

Peace Out Homies!
