We call it living

“Breathing in the highs and lows, we call it living.” -Switchfoot

Jon Foreman has always had a way of writing about life in a way that I can understand. I believe that if you always see life through rose-colored glasses, you are bound to miss out on so much of the beauty of dark nights and will never fully appreciate the hope that comes with the light of the morning sun.

I like to look for light in dark, which is what I usually write about. But as we wrap up 2012, a hard year in so many ways, I would love nothing more than to simply breathe in the highs and forget about the lows for just a moment. Because, frankly, this year has been incredible and I am ashamed to admit that all of my best moments have been regretfully overlooked, swept to the corner and forgotten.

So these are the highs of 2012:

The best part is that these are just a few of the highs of the year. 2012 was a full of blessing and love and happiness and one that I will remember with a smile! I can’t wait to see what’s on this post for next year!
