I love the start of a new year.
Each year, I look at my previous years "New Years Resolutions" and see what I have accomplished, and what I still have to work on. Currently - I don't know where my journal from the beginning of last year (2009) is. I am not sure I still have it. It might have been one of those I threw away. I have thrown out giant stacks of my journals. I don't figure any of my children will want a mountain of journals. So, my plan here is to die with 1 left for each of them.
Then I make resoltions for my new Year -
I have been surfing around this morning a little online and looking at what other homeschooling families mom's are doing and how they are doing it. I can't stand it when people give the smug "I don't make New Years Resolutions" line/speech. It is annoying and condescending. And quite frankly, I think it smacks of laziness.
Why do I make New Years resolutions?
Well because I haven't arrived yet. I still have lots and lots of work to do before I will be pleasing in the eyes of God. I try every day to be a better wife, mother, daughter and friend. For me, it is WORK - I am like that silly bumper sticker, "Be patient, God isn't finished with me yet."
So, today as I go through my work I will be thinking......
Thinking about what I will strive to achieve in the coming year.
