Change. I've learned to embrace it, ride it out til the end. Sometimes I'm kicking and screaming, other times weeping with my eyes clinched tight. Once in awhile I ride like a dog in a car, head out the window snorting what life has to offer. Mother to young adult children, a marriage of thirty years, and a desert to mountain to valley waltz with God have shaped me into someone I never imagined I'd be. Life is short and I want to live it. Tears, sighs, laughter and change. Every morsel granted to me. Scrambled, shaken or stirred.

I made no resolutions this year.
I rarely do. But this year was even more low key.
We shared spiritual, emotional and physical goals as we toasted in the new year.
Mine were simple.
Spiritually : I want to grow more in faith, knowledge and wisdom which will require spending time with God both in prayer and absorbing His Words.
Physically: I want to continue, one step at a time, making healthy choices, embracing a healthy lifestyle, helping my body to live long and prosper.
Emotionally: I want to keep my eyes, ears and heart open to the growth and changes I need to be emotionally healing and happy. I want to observe those around me and note the things that I do not want to perpetuate upon my near dear ones, and note the things I'd like to incorporate into my life. And then avoid or embrace those things.
I want to laugh, love and live this life. So in 2011, I will make steps to do those very things.
