Back to Blogging

I have been neglecting my blog lately. I tell you, life just keeps coming at you. And I have not had much time to do the reflection that generally leads to a blog post.

Today however, I am not in a rush. I woke up early, and got to work. But there was no pressure of the ticking clock. No papers and emails to answer in a time sensitive way. There was not freezing rain and other weather impediments.

There was just me.
Me looking around and saying some prayers.
Me breathing deep over and over again.
Me laughing and smiling and enjoying new things in my life.
Me doing some much needed cleaning and organizing.

2013, what a year you have been! You saw me through a plethora of experiences. You were unexpected, but you were good for me. So, in these last few days of December, I will be looking back. Thinking back with a glad heart, of all that has been included in these times.

These times that have housed.....
my daddy's broken nose and extended recovery
perseverance on the job front
sharing life and newness and sadness with friends and family
the loss of an uncle and great-aunt
the marriage of my sister
travels, and moves, and starts and finsihes

Then I will also look ahead to 2014. You know looking ahead is one of my favorite pastimes;)
I'll take some time and write about New Year's goals and what could be expected with the start of a fresh New Year.

I feel the same way as you about 2013. It was actually pretty good. So now I'm looking for 2014 to be pretty GREAT!
