Resolutions

On the brink of 2009...

Find ... my happy self, my content self, my zen self.
Pursue ... my passion for love, my passion for friendships, my passion for creating family, and for creating memories.
Believe ... in the beauty and awe of GOD, that dreams are still awaiting me.
Appreciate ... the small and smaller moments, the things which bring me stress may be a gift to another (work, family, etc), the smallness of my children NOW -- they seem so big, but I will look back at their tiny hands and arms and faces and remember just how small they still are.
Trust ... that not knowing the outcome of tomorrow makes me stronger today.
Encourage ... everyone; my children to be whoever they dream to be, my students to follow their own dreams, my family to love big.
Pray ... more intently, more frequently, more meaningfully.  

2009 
I'll give more high fives, more smiles, more hugs.
I'll chase dreams, and BELIEVE that they will bring me exactly.where.I.belong.

Hi, I found you through Lori's blog and I can totally relate to many of your resolutions. Best of luck in the New Year! I also teach first grade and I love your post about the gift from one of your students, so cute! Way better than another teacher mug!

Those are great resolutions...so well thought out, yet easy to attain if you put your mind to it.

I need to do ALL of these things and more. Smile more, hug more, love more!

You are so beautiful, so smart, so full of grace, and so good. You already are all that you resolve to be. You know that, right?

Excellent words for the start of a new year.

Trish said...

You really genuinely ARE all the things that you resolve to be. The rest of the things that you want for your life and your family will unfold for you in the time it is meant to.

I love you!

After work tonight I'm going to go home and look at my twins' tiny hands and arms and faces...omg, that made me tear up. Beautiful.
