New Month’s Resolutions

  1. Bake cookies. It’s been far too long.
  2. Forego so much as new socks and go all Dave Ramsey on our credit card’s ass.
  3. Haul my sleepy bones out in the fresh air and give my work-out shoes a run (ha!) for their money.
  4. Cultivate gratitude.
    (For the first snowfall of the year, the air dancing white;
    For a washing machine up to the repeated challenge of sick days;
    For beauty growing wild out of old hurts;
    For sugar-dusted sunsets lingering one minute closer to spring.)

What about you? Any dear little challenges to keep February on its toes?

  1. I love your list. 🙂 I came online today hoping you had written something to give me courage, and you have. Thank you. 🙂 Honestly, this month I’m just trying to keep from being a constant puddle of hurt and tears as I work through painful situations with various family members and others from my past. I feel like Bilbo described in Lord of the Rings: “butter scraped over too much bread.” But I’ll make it. I must make it. 🙂

  2. Too much to list, unfortunately, and probably too much to get done anyway. I love this post…and I love you too!

  3. Oh, and I forgot to send Krista up there a big hug. It sounds like she needs one!

  4. i lovelovelove this.

  5. Oh Krista, I feel for you, friend. (And doesn’t that Bilbo quote sum so much up perfectly?) I owe your blog a long and lingering visit. Until then, warm and hopeful vibes aplenty.

    Megsie – Okay, time to come out with it. You’re Superwoman, yes? You utterly amaze and inspire me, and your February resolutions could probably eat mine for lunch. 🙂 Love you too.

    Beka – 🙂 🙂

  6. So FAR from superwoman. Is there in antithesis? That is me.
