Happy Christmas 2018

So I got an Apple Watch this year. Did you know that you can use it to take pictures from your iphone?  Can you tell that I am learning how to use this feature in our family selfie?!

For those of you who are not on social media, or don’t live nearby and see any of us on a regular basis, you may be out of touch with what is going on in the lives of the Mohlers! Here are some of the highlights (and low points) our family experienced this year:

Clayton graduated in May with a degree in Accounting from Biola University. He works for an accounting firm in Irvine (HVCT) and makes his home in Fullerton. Clayton’s travels were varied as he traveled to Houston, Chicago, Ukraine, Utah and Arizona this year. He is happily single, but has been busy celebrating his friends who have found their life partner!  His soccer career is over but he finds ways to keep kicking!

Emily and Connor are both on pastoral staff as youth directors at Crosspoint Church in Chino. They have 2 cats; Louise can high-five and Gene will play fetch. They have passes to Disneyland and are enjoying their 4thyear of married life! Emily and Connor made trips to Northern California,Oregon and Arizona.

I still live in Downey and commute to EvFree Fullerton; it takes about an hour each way, due to traffic. I am grateful for a great place to live, a car that runs great and a job! When I am not working or driving to work I am usually hangin’ with friends, watching(Dodger) baseball or wandering Disneyland or the internet! Though I usually have too much month at the end of my money, I managed a few short trips toNorthern CA and Arizona, although most of those trips were for weddings or funerals.

The days are long and the years are short. It feels like I was just writing this annual letter for 2017! Jim has been a resident of heaven for over 8 years now and has been joined by more than a few family members and friends this year. Weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning! My to-do-list is growing as is the stack of books on my nightstand as I now navigate life with a really empty nest.

It is my privilege to count you as one of “my people” and I am grateful you are in my life! May God bless you in 2019.

With Joyful Hope, Miriam Mohler
