Well, here we are, the day after Christmas. We survived it. This year for us was quite a bit different than usual. For one thing, our youngest daughter, who got married in September, was missing from our typical Christmas morning chaos. Secondly, due to financial hardships encountered this year, there simply was not much funds available for much gifting to be done. Despite the differences, I believe we had a very nice Christmas. Everyone in our family was well and together for the day. And really, isn't that what Christmas should be about the most - sharing and spending time with family?
Now as we get ready to begin a new year and a new decade, my thoughts turn towards what kind of goals I want to set. Every year I set goals and try to achieve them, but most years I fail to accomplish anything. In 2010 I hope to break that trend. I have learned a lot this year through various trials I have encountered that goals can be accomplished as long as one sets their minds/hearts on it and never quits. So maybe for me, the question becomes what "goal" (singular) can I set for myself this year that I can devote my energy to and see accomplished this year?
I know I have stated it often before, but I truly hope to start blogging again on a regular basis. It is a good way to share what is on my heart and in doing so, I think it helps me become a stronger person eventually.
So, Merry Christmas to my blog readers and have a wonderful NEW YEAR!
