W has started kindergarten
K has started dance classes
and M was born!
I guess you could say we've been a little busy. And now brings about the start of another new year. I always look forward to a new year, not just because if signals my birthday month beginning, but also because it offers the promise of a new start. And though 99% of the New Year's Resolutions aren't kept, that promise of a new start is still alive and well.
More memories of Christmas to be shared soon. Until then, Happy New Year!

Ok guys, we can go outside and play. But NO digging! We have to leave for bible school in 2 hours and I don't want to give you a bath.
Of course they swore they wouldn't dig and out the door they ran. Straight to the "barn" where they proceeded to scoop "poop" not dirt from their cow Butterscotch.
Sometimes you just have to admit they've outwitted you and concede defeat!

Ok, so maybe those were slightly exaggerated, but truthfully each year I make my list and usually within days I have "fallen off" the proverbial wagon and I my resolutions are a thing of the past. I have been reflecting a lot the past week or so and I realize that what I want more than anything is to be the person I was used to be. Not literally, 10 years all but erases that possibility. But I want to look in the mirror and see someone smiling back that not only do I like, but funny as this may sound, I love.
Posted below is my list of resolutions for the year. You might note that #4 on my list is Love myself. This isn't anything weird or funny, just truly loving who I am. I need to appreciate all of the good in my life. Be thankful for what I have and what I can do. And more importantly I need to accept what I can't do, not beat myself up over it, but accept that its ok.
In 2 weeks I will be turning 35. That is a magical age to me, not because I am half way to 40 but because I feel like I am finally an adult. An adult who resolves to love myself.
