Dear Family and Friends,
As we come to the close of another year, we would like to wish you Happy Holidays and a very Merry Christmas.
This year has been full of adventures, ending and beginnings for the two of us. Our most memorable adventures this year included a weekend drive to New York City to buy a truck, followed by a five day road trip to Durango, Mexico (the next weekend) for a wedding, and finally plans to end and begin the new year with a one month trip to Papua New Guinea. Our biggest ending this year was that Daniel finally graduated from college. Our biggest beginning this year is that Daniel has accepted a job in Charlotte, North Carolina to begin the middle of February after we return from our upcoming trip.
We have been so blessed to have the love and support and friendships that we have had these pas years and we would like to thank all of you for being a part of our lives.
We would now like to share our Top 10 List of What we Learned During Our Second Year of Marriage:
1) If you ever drive to NYC, bring a map – a GPS does not work when the sky is blocked by skyscrapers!That concludes our list for this year. Please keep us in your prayers as we will be traveling overseas until February 1st and then completing our move to North Carolina.
2) A 4-wheel drive vehicle will get you nowhere in the ice and snow if all of the doors (including the fuel door) are frozen shut.
3) Stop signs in Mexico rarely mean STOP, think of them as a "YIELD" sign.
4) During your last semester of college, "D" stands for diploma.
5) It is possible to graduate, accept a job, move out of state, visit people for the holidays and pack for a month long international mission trip in the span of ten days!
6) If you work out every Monday night, and then eat fast food because you are too tired to cook, it is nearly impossible to lose any weight.
7) When Cheree goes out for coffee with friends, don't expect her to come home until late...
8) When Daniel goes out to study, don't expect him back at all.
9) Daniel learned that it is a completely different experience to be a passenger on a motorcycle (especially when it is Cheree driving... with her newly earned motorcycle license)!
10) If you trust in God, he will take care of your needs.
We wish you a very happy New Year filled with much joy and happiness and overflowing with many blessings.
