Happy New Year ... and the CURRENTLY!
Happy (early) New Year!!! I think 2012 was just a dream, it went by so fast!
I have been a bad blogger, but I have been enjoying the holidays with my family & friends & just takin' it easy. But, it's that awesome time of the month, where we all link up with Farley for the Currently! I'm usually late on this, so I'm pretty pumped to get ahead of the game this time. Maybe that's a good omen for the new year??!!
Listening - I just LOVE Ellen. Even the re-runs make me happy. She is so positive & does so much for others. I watch her every day when I get home from school & she's a bright spot in my day.
Loving - all my Christmas gifts. I am truly blessed (and NOT in just the material way), but it was a boots frenzy this year! I got all 3 pair of the new boots I wanted, and I just can't wait to wear them. But, I've been kinda lazy (i.e. yoga pants and sweatshirts, so they haven't gotten worn just yet!).
Thinking - Oh how I hated getting out of school on the 21st. The kids were nutball, and so was I, But, now that I still have a full week in front of me, I'm a pretty happy gal :)
Wanting - So, my brain is on overdrive with my need to re-do the master bathroom. I love to decorate and change things, so I'm always looking for ideas (hello Pinterest!), but this has become a necessity! I've already picked out the shower curtain & accessories...now I just need the $$ to make it happen! Oh, January - how broke you make me!
Needing - for the Sudafed, Tylenol Cold & Flu, and Cough Drops to work their miracle magic and make me feel better. I'm thankful I'm sick now, and not next week trying to get back into the swing of things, but I really hate feeling like poopy. I think everyone in the free world is sick, at least according to my Facebook feed, but I'm ready to feel better!
OLW - Faith
I tend to be a wee bit of a control freak - I want to control everything, and when something is not going to way I think it should, I want to change it. But, this year, my goal is to just have FAITH.
I read this quote once .. " Faith in God includes Faith in His Timing". That's my new motto this year - to truly trust and have faith that everything is the way it is for a reason . . . faith that it will all work out the way it's supposed to .... faith that my kiddies are getting all they need to & the powers that be really have their best interest at heart . . . faith that I can do the things I set my mind to... faith that I can let go of the things I simply can't control...
... the list goes on & on, but you get the point! :)
Anyway, that's it for me. I hope you all have a WONDERFUL new year!!! Here's to a beautiful, faith-filled, happy, and healthy 2013!!
