I didn't make any real New Year's resolutions, because I know I will just break them. But I do have a short list of things that I want to do during 2010:
- Spend as much time as possible with Will and Clay
- Laugh more and cry less
- Give more, take less
- Learn to slow down and take every single moment in
- Read the entire Bible
- Spend more time worrying about what God thinks about me, and not what others think about me
- Live the life I know I am supposed to live and let everything else fall into place
Now, I want to invest my time and energy into the important things in life. I want to live my life by God's standards. I want to raise my child in a loving home. I want a strong marriage. I want spend time with people who love me for me - flaws and all. Having Will in 2009 changed my perspective on this life. I thought success could be measured by the amount in my bank account. Now I know that is not true. I want my success to be measured by what kind of Christian, mother, wife, daughter, sister, and friend I am. God's plan for my life is so much better than what I had "planned" and that is pretty amazing.
I hope everyone has a wonderful 2010!
