Happy 2013 to everyone!
While I don't care much for the "Eve" partying,
I rather enjoy New Year's Day.
I love to make lists, and resolutions
for a new year are my favorite.
I love how God wisely created the seasons for us,
knowing we need the time to grow & bloom,
work and play, reap rewards
and then relax before starting over.
The gift of a new year provides us with the
perfect time to reflect on our past.
What were the previous year's great moments?
Were there changes that worked?
Maybe one didn't turn out so well?
Then we step forward, resolving in every way
to become better. Perfection will never
be reached. But giving up without trying,
well....that's just not my style!
Besides, it's much more fun to work at it--
and that's our purpose here, isn't it?
I won't bore you all with my list
(it'll probably come out here and there anyway)
but may I share that I am off and running?
I've already made a gift for Christmas '13!
These scarves are sooo fun & easy! I hope they're still popular next
year because they are perfect for a quick, create-something fix!
With Epiphany in a few days, Christmas will end.
When the season comes to a close, I'm never
ready--in fact, I go into a bit of a mope.
My cure? Start on next Christmas!
I'm already planning knitting, quilting, sewing...
(Thank you, Pinterest!)
Goodness, that will require a list, won't it?
A small, sad note: it's time to say goodbye
to the eggnog and caramel brûlée lattes till next fall.
Ah, well...to everything there is a season.
