Happy New Year's, dear friends! How exciting to begin a new year, a new decade. Please forgive me for fading out in December. It was one happy, hectic month. I'm hoping to share some of those memories with you, but for now I just want to get back to blogging. Like many of you, I've been thoughtfully thinking of the year ahead. Resolutions seem to drop by the wayside, so I'm thinking more of goals for 2010. The idea of having a word or phrase for the year appeals to me. Lots of wonderful words like graditude, generosity, kindness, joy, live --- have been considered. The phrase that motivates me the most is "Just do it". I want to make this the year of doing, acting on my goals and dreams. I pulled out a blank journal this morning and even made a fabric journal cover for it. I plan to reflect some this evening and begin writing my goals and dreams in this journal for 2010. We watch lots of football at my house - that's one of DH's loves. Lately, in some of the games I've heard the phrase "just finish it." Just do it, follow through to the end and Finish it seem to be my goal for this year. Do you have a phrase or word for 2010? Let's just "Do it - in 2010" whatever our goals, dreams, or plans may be.
