2013 is here

Last year I wrote this post about my expectations for 2012.
It has been a good year.
A hard year with a lot of changes but a good year too.
I have tried to find joy in all circumstances.
Sometimes I succeeded and sometimes I didn't.
I thought a lot about what I wanted to write in my first post in 2013.
A new beginning is so open and fresh.
And people love to fill it with all their lofty goals.
But I don't.
That depresses me, because I know I won't accomplish it all.
What a way to start a year . . .
I want to start this year off by being thankful for my four greatest blessings.

They are my mission for 2013.
I want to be a better mom and a better wife.
I know these are goals that are never actually checked off a list, but that makes it easier for me to work on it.
It is a constant goal to strive for.
I want it at the forefront of my mind in all decision-making.
I want them to feel loved and cherished with everything I do.
That is my "resolution" for 2013.
And maybe I will finally try to make a loaf of homeade bread.
Maybe . . .
Because I don't want to overwhelm myself or anything.
