For the first time, we let the kids stay up to watch the ball drop for New Year’s Eve. It was fun. We watched Disney’s “Brave,” and played Uno. I initiated them into the ways of Spoons, too.
We poured some apple juice bubbly, and toasted in the New Year as a family.
I loved it.
It was quiet, fun, and so, so good.
We don’t do stuff like that enough.
I am hoping that 2013 is filled with more purposeful family days. A game night, one-on-one dates with my kids, new birth clients, progress and growth in homeschooling, more dates with Levi.
More faith, hope, and love in Jesus.
I’ll be working on these this week.
I have never made resolutions, because I know they don’t last. I started using Tsh’s questions last year, and found that they gave me a good place to start in being purposeful in my life across all areas – physical, mental, spiritual, professional, etc.
I have to admit that moving forward into a New Year feels a little scary for the first time. There is so much on the horizon that I can’t actually see, because my horizon lies around a bend in the road. What’s around that bend, I have no idea. I just feel like this year is going to be one of deep change.
And change is hard. Have you ever tried to bend a quarter?! (ba-dum-ch!)
At least I still have a sense of humor.
What are you doing with your New Year? Do you even know yet? Me neither. At least we can not know together!
Grace & Peace,
