Teach has been after me all day to make some goals for the new year. I must confess that I generally face a new year with a can-do attitude, but I'm just not feeling it this year.
Maybe I'm looking at it the wrong way.
This past year, 2014, was one of the most eventful, most wonderful, most challenging years of my life. Teach was on her mission in the beginning and I went through some super-depressing times in the spring first with my surgery and then with shingles. My sweetie has worked so many hours this year there are some days I feel like a single mom although I know if I really needed him he would be here in a heartbeat.
The second half of the year was filled with Beauty and The Beast's courtship and subsequent marriage, Teach coming home from her mission, Drama Queen changing her life, and Bossy and Gamer heading for the temple. I am at the lowest weight I have been in about 20 years. My sweetie has lost almost 70 lbs.
The Dog Walker is nearly ready to finish his college degree and even though he failed Math 1010 in the summer, he pulled off a B this semester. He is finally beginning to understand math and he loves being a missionary. The blessings just keep flowing here and most of them were not a direct result of any goals I set on January 1, 2014.
So, yes, I will try my best and work hard. I will be the best mom I know how to be. I will attend my church meetings and pay my tithing and support my missionaries (Drama Queen wants to serve in the summer!), and I will be happy and hopefully more healthy. But I think I will let my Heavenly Father make all the big decisions. The only real resolution I need is to rely on Him more. For me and my family, He's doing an amazing job!
