I Don't Make New Year's Resolutions - But If I Did...

Image Detail

I'm not a big resolution-maker.  I've tried in the past, and I don't keep them :) 

However, I did see this list on The Change Blog,and decided if I were going to make New Year's Resolutions, this would be a most excellent list of resolutions to make:



1.I will be loving towards all whom I meet.
2.I will forgive all who attempt to harm me.
3.I become what I think; therefore, I will think only thoughts of greatness.
4.I will look for ways to strengthen those who have less than I.
5.I will always seek knowledge and truth.
6.I will always be honest.
7.I will never waste what I am given.
8.I will be grateful for all that I have.
9.I will develop a spirit of optimism.
10.I will have faith in something greater than myself.

Happy New Year's to you and yours!!!

A Special Thank You



In the past few months I've had two close family members go through major surgery.  I wanted to take a moment and thank all the people in the medical profession who do what they do every day - especially to the nurses and doctors who work miracles mending people.  I don't know if they ever get enough thank you's, so I'm sending a big one out today. 

I'd especially like to give shout outs to the doctors, nurses, and staff at Medical Center of McKinney and Methodist Hospital for Surgery in Addison. 

THANK YOU for taking such good care of my loved ones!

Stop and Enjoy

If your life has been like mine, sitting down and relaxing is a challenge right now.  I'm working against a deadline at work.  Family members have had health issues.  The kids have activities and homework and performances galore.  Holiday parties.  Decorations.  Christmas shopping.  Present wrapping.

Sigh. 

I was debating what to write about in my blog this week, when I decided that we all might just need a break.  I invite you to pause amid all the madness and enjoy this video for a moment...  (Don't worry, everything will still be waiting for you when it's over!)
