This year (2015) was interesting for me- rocky for sure! I was trying to "recover" physically from helping take care of Grandma Hale, recover emotionally & mentally from helping take care of Grandma Hale...I got to where I was a basket-case, so I am VERY thankful to Sherri M. & Mom for helping me "get well" with homeopathic remedies for grief. My new problem is learning how exactly I fit into the family, and what is my roll exactly??? Who am I, and what am I to do??
(I'm not a life planner- never really was...but I guess that you already know that. I think that it's a good idea, but I'm not sure how to start.)
I realized today that some people's "jar of pebbles" represents the milestones in life & things they did. My pebbles are more like tick-marks, or a sand clock...the "today is over!" or "another year is gone, and I'm another year older"...check mark!!! (How many more to go???) I'm afraid that I live my life waiting for my life to start.
This year, I'll work on my love, joy, peace, patience, gentleness, goodness, faithfulness, meekness, and self-control... You know, relax, find joy in the little things, be more easy going... (I know these are not "easy" things- you don't just wake up 'perfict'. You have to work at it for years! Shopping in a store is A LOT easier than growing.)
So sorry to bother you with all the long, deep thoughts!
I wish you and yours the very best in 2016. =) Happy New Year, Friend. =)
