How was your year? Filled with good health, success and happiness, I hope. I’m sure grateful for the blessings our family received. This year we celebrated the marriages of our two younger children, and we also welcomed a new grandbaby in November. She’s definitely keeping her fledgling parents busy, and of course, we think she’s the cutest little dolly ever. We also feel so blessed to have had good health, and wonderful times with family throughout the year…and even had a white Christmas, as you can see in the photos. I would love to hear about the highlights you’ve enjoyed in 2012!
While looking back over 2012 I just realized that it’s now time to start thinking about goals and yes, the resolutions that I never seem to keep beyond the first week in any given January. If any of you have successfully followed through on your New Year’s resolutions I would sure love to hear about what you achieved and how you managed to stay on course, because my track record isn’t exactly sterling!
Every year I plan to lose weight. A lot of weight. I plan to begin walking three–no, five miles a day, or even six. I plan to follow a logical, stress-free writing schedule, to eliminate high-stress days and nights of writing like mad to meet a deadline. Prompt correspondence…elimination of all clutter…the list goes on and on. It’s never worked before, but I guess that’s my list again this year, though maybe there are some important things to add. Like promising myself to be better about keeping in touch with distant relatives and friends, and taking time every week to do something fun. It’s all too easy to become mired in the day-to-day stuff of life, isn’t it?
So, please share! What are your own resolutions for 2013? And what were the highlights for you in 2012?
