I know it has been way too long since my last post. With the holidays and a trip I have been really busy. We have been hit with a lot of cold weather and snow. The boys had a week off even before winter break due to snow. I thought we live in Tennessee? This is the south right? Well it is the end of the year and I am already ready for some warm weather and sunshine.
As this year comes to an end I have to sit and reflect on it and ponder how it went overall. I know I could always do better, give more, be more. I always find myself coming short of what and who I want to be. I am so thankful for what God has blessed me with, a wonderful husband, 3 beautiful children, a warm home, a job for my husband... the list could go on. With all that I wonder why I am not doing more... being more.
As the new year approaches I am not going to make resolutions because I know that they don't work, but I am going to try my best to do more... be more than I am right now. There are so many people out there who are in need of something. Something maybe I could give them... a kind word...a good deed....a fresh loaf of bread...something. I don't know what it may be, but as this New Year begins I am going to make it a daily prayer of mine to ask God if there is something I could do or someone in need that I could help in some way. I think I feel that I want this 2011 to be less about me and more about others. I hope I could fulfill this.
I hope you all had a wonderful blessed Christmas and have a Happy New Year.
Today's tip is mostly for myself, try to be more focused on others than myself. Yes I will still eat healthy and exercise and take care of myself, but I am really going to try to be more sensitive to the needs of others.
