New Years Resolution
Yes, I am one of those people who makes New Years resolutions. They are usually the normal ones, eat healthy, exercise, and all the others. A few years ago we made our resolution to just have more fun during the year. We now refer to that as the "Concert Year." I think that we went to four or five, "Wow, glad we finally got around to seeing them while they are still preforming" concerts. This last year was going to be our big travel year, but sometimes real life interrupts. The past year has been a really rough one and each day is a struggle, but at the same time we have been blessed beyond words. We could not foresee that our sweet little granddaughter would be living nearby, little cousins now have the chance to become best friends, or that a husband would have a life changing medical diagnosis. What we did know ahead of time was that God would be with us each and every day and that he would use it to strengthen each of us and our family.
And so what is my resolution for this year? The necklace that I picked out for Christmas says it all. "Focus On The Day." I will be making the conscious effort to focus on the special moments in each and everyday from a hug, to birds at the feeder, or the smell of bread baking.
Do you have a resolution for the new year?
