A key thing I've learned as I've gotten older:  acceptance.  

Eh, okay.  A little.   I have a ways to go.  And when I'm talking about acceptance, I'm talking about accepting things in my life, that directly affect me.  

Take today, for instance.  The plan? Get a bunch of stuff done.  Get all packed for the trip the kids and I will be leaving for on Friday. Head over to my brother and his family's house for some sledding and dinner.  But then this happened: 

The packing? The cleaning?  With a little lady on my lap, I was a bit stuck {in a good way}.  The packing had to wait.

There is only so long that these little ones will find themselves on my lap and stay there for longer than a few minutes.

My plan is to take advantage of every minute of it.


One Word :: 2014 :: Firework {cont'd}

I may be biting of more than I can chew.  BUT my goal for 2014 is to be a firework.

ORIGINAL: not worrying about being one of the crowd, doing my {or our} own thing.

ILLUMINATING: bringing light to the world, to the people around me, to myself.

SHOCKING: in 2014 I don't want to stop surprising myself, my husband, my children.  Life is short, it's time to make it exciting.

ENERGETIC: explains itself, yes?

INSTANTANOUS: no procrastinating.  Do things now--now waiting.

IGNITE: my passion.  Not sure what direction this blog is going to take, but it's involved in my passion of writing.  So expect to see me more around these parts.

and last:

BEAUTIFUL: comes from this blog entry at Momastery.


One Word :: 2014 :: Firework

A fresh start.

A new year.

A new word.


More to come. 

Happy New Year!
