2015 Moments

2015 Moments2015 was a year mixed with both joy and sorrow.  It was the year I said goodbye to my closest co-workers and AOL got bought by Verizon, the year Jeff lost his sister, Debbie, to cancer,  the year Jeff’s daughter Erin got married, the year Luke played flag football and won the championships, the year I turned 40 and faced my fear of flying 17 times.  The year it hailed in the San Fernando Valley.  It was the year I learned to be thankful in all things.  As 2015 comes to a close I am hopeful to begin a new chapter. One of focus and intention for what blessings and assignments God has in store for me in 2016.  Here are the moments of 2015 through my lens.
