To you my dear New Year.....



Yesterday as my daughter and I sat snuggled on the couch and reminisced the holidays our conversation wandered to resolutions. The allure of a fresh brand new year is enough to entice anyone to pledge thoughtful changes to oneself.

The scale will always taunt us. Personalities will clash and opinions will differ.....

This year I resolve to bring the focus back to my own home. My resolution is to face each day with bravery and commitment. Making decisions that are in the best interest of my family, concerning myself less with the opinions of others and listening to my heart. Many difficult challenges will no doubt find us this year. I resolve to find the strength in every situation.....

I resolve to Laugh when I want to cry. Love when I feel hate. Live each day as it is, a new opportunity. Kiss my sweet husband every chance I get! Hold hands! Listen to the imagination of a child. Dance with joy at every milestone.....

Live vicariously, run a half marathon.....

Bring it on 2013!

  10. Run a 1/2 marathon? You GO GIRL! Sadly, I need to drop a few (lots) of lbs. so that's my goal. But I LOVE your "Kiss my sweet husband every chance I get!" That's the stuff that is so very worthy! (But I may end up with more kiddos!)
