Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!!

In just a few hours, we'll be saying goodbye to 2015 and ringing in the New Year!  As is typical, this is a time to reflect on the past year.  My daughter just mentioned that this was a long year for her because so much has happened:  her first Spring Break (or any time) away from home, high school graduation, moving away to college...

For me and my husband, we shared in all those wonderful events for our daughter in one way shape or form, too!  We've been blessed and all in all it was a very good year!

 But I've never been good at looking back for too long.  I'd rather look ahead at the promise of a fresh, new year.  I have some resolutions as I'm sure you do as well (and Santa brought me a brand new planner to help me keep track!).  I'm going to work on taking better care of my health,  keeping a blessings journal every day and being kinder by keeping things in perspective.  Maybe not earth-shattering, but things that will make positive impacts in my life - and perhaps in the lives of those around me, too.

So as we head into a brand, new year, I pray that God bless you and those you care about today and all through 2016!
