Hey my friends!
I hope all of you had a very Merry Christmas.
We certainly did.
Just spending time together.
I also hope you had a Joyous New Year's Day.
I took the week off from blogging, to enjoy time with my family.
You must admit, blogging takes some time.
However, do you know how to determine if you need something in your life?
When it's gone, you miss it :)
And oh, how I've missed you all.
So, I will be catching up with posting, leaving comments, and reading
all that I've missed.
I really enjoy all the friendships I've made with so many of you.
With a brand new year, I always get in the clean-out/simplify/organize mood.
I want to throw away old stuff and only keep things that I love.
I plan to organize, regroup, and rethink the whole house and all of it's contents.
But I must say, there are more important things...
like the big picture.
I've been soul searching with thoughts of a fresh start of the new year.
What do I need to do to make this year better?
I need joy, laughter, fun!
Sometimes mom duties can be overwhelming, stripping the joy right from us.
Laundry, cleaning and parenting are not always joyous events.
Therefore, here is my motto for this year:
"Don't be dejected and sad,
for the joy of the Lord is your strength!"
While getting back in the gym, eating healthy, organizing, and
cleaning out, are on my list of resolutions...
what matters most is having fun with the people I love.
In 2011, I want the JOY of the LORD to be my strength.
I'm committing to having fun
being the best wife and mom I can be,
Because, after all, if it's not fun, why do it?
Let's have fun together!
Here's to a brand new year!
What are you committing to this year?
