New Year’s Resolutions – Maybe

by | Jan 6, 2005 | in the Spirit

OK – so, my resolution wrt this site is to post more often! Like once a day add something that has crossed my mind.

Assignment: Find 5 things to be grateful for….

Response:

  1. A beautiful anniversary card from John
  2. The pleasure of a small, very pregnant dog when I do something simple like rub her belly gently
  3. The health of all 3 of my children
  4. Friends (sisters in Christ) like Mies, Amanda & Rosalee who can share joy and grief and love
  5. feeling better – and less bitchy today than yesterday

Resolution carried out for one day….

They brought the kids’ bikes and skates and legos, and the son-in-law’s golf clubs (his parents live very close by). We spent hours on the back porch just being and talking. Kev played […]
