My family was hit really hard over the Christmas and New Year break with colds, nursing the girls was successful but alas now it is my turn. Of course it is. I’ve been forgetting to blog, this doesn’t surprise me because frankly I forget alot in my life these days. So I’m adding a reminder to my phone and we’ll see how I do.
Resolutions weren’t something I did much…when I was younger I did but I found I just didn’t really keep them.
I did resolve to turn my will to God a while ago and that’s working, it’s becoming more of a habit than a consious thought now. I recently resolved to Respond with Love. This was a resolve which came from a wonderful man in the rooms who adapted the Respond rather than React phrase. I love this man….he has a ton of sobriety, a strong Christian faith and his love for life and others exudes from him.
I did NOT respond with love when our dog decided to chew her bone while it was on top of my husband’s cell phone…..the phone got chewed in the process. Bad Dog Miss Cocoa Bean. She’s bloody lucky she’s cute.
I did however manage to hold it together long enough to survive constant bickering between the children on NYE (eldest daughter’s birthday)…..they are alive ;) It’s amazing how much a 5 year old girl can pout over the span of 10 hours.
