Happy New Year - Finally

New Year's Day reminds me of a sunrise -- the dawn of of a beautiful day.


It's very invigorating to me - the start of the New Year. And, in honor of this renewed sense of energy -- I thought I'd start my New Year posts off with a list of my "hopes" for the future.

In 2009, I hope....

to be open to exploring new things (creatively, physically and mentally)
to become stronger and healthier
to spend more time with people I have things in common with
to increase my level of competence in activities I enjoy
to be a better wife, mother, daughter and sister
to learn to accept others for exactly who they are and not who I expect them to be
to experience deeper meaning in my faith
to increase my level of focus

I also sincerely hope that 2009 brings to you health, joy and deeper meaning to your own life.

Now let's get back to doing what we love!
