Well, day 2 of 2012 has started without a hitch. Glad to see everybody made it!
Over the last several weeks and months I have been grappling with this question: What will make this year different? There are any number of ways that any one of us could answer that. We will do better, try harder, accomplish more, slow down, do less. I don’t know what it is for you, but I have come to the conclusion, that for me, the theme for this year will be
NOT FOR GRANTED
I will no longer take for granted the people whom I love or the ones who, of their own free will, share their time with me. Does that mean that there will be no hiccups, no arguments, no misunderstandings? Come on, not even the most optimistic person in the world could believe that! What I want is to remember that everyday is a gift. A gift filled with wonderful opportunities to make a difference.
I think that this is the fundamental idea for me right now. What I want to be different is that I want to make a difference. I want my time and energy to not go to waste. There are several things that I will be doing this year that I hope will make my goal for this year come true. I will be sharing one of them tomorrow.
Come back and see if it is something that you want to be a part of. (HINT: I has to do with the last thing Jesus said I/we should be doing as Christians).
Also, I have an announcement to make tomorrow about something I finally finished LAST year! I can’t wait to share it, but I will.
