When it connected in my brain that 2013 was really about to be over in a matter of days, I took a minute to think about what I had accomplished. And it was a big fat NOTHING. Nothing! The whole year has slipped away from me. I think all my plans are embedded deep into Graham's double chin. The things I had planned to cross off the list were nice, but not as important as my kids, so I will just get to it soon and not get too fussy.
And I saw another year come and go, and we have our health, work, faith, and each other. That's what I want, and that's what I want for this year too. If I also happen to get the office organized and the kids' bathroom painted, 3 cheers for that.
