May 1st – a new month, a clean slate, a new beginning. Having just turned 47, the big 50 isn’t that far away. To be honest I don’t feel that old. I feel like I am in my mid-thirties. Other then aging eyes and bones and about 30 pounds I feel pretty good. Of course 3 kids help with that as well (old and young all at the same time). There are so many things left to,do, to start, to see. Like visiting Disney (which we’ve never done) and a trip to Israel (maybe once the kids leave home). But today, I choose to make small changes, small plans that may lead to those bigger goals and dreams. So daily I choose to kiss my husband and kids and tell them I love them, count the gifts that I am thankful for, tell my story through a picture a day, spending time with my Savior through the Word He gave me and the studies His teachers have supplied. Exercising 3 times a week even when I don’t feel like it and fostering new and old relationships, loving others like Jesus loves me.
Wow…three posts in three days. Not sure if I can keep this up. My goal is once a week but I’d settle for once a month. I have been letting my hair grow out. And it’s about this time that I get frustrated and chop it all off but I’m trying to hang in there. This is about 6 months. It takes sooo long but I thought I would track the progress.
