New Year's Resolutions

I never make New Year's Resolutions, but there has been much blogging out there about them, and so I've been giving resolutions a thought or two. I've decided that maybe they aren't all bad. So here are some of my resolutions.

This year, I resolve to.....

...spend time doing things I enjoy.

...hug an old person.

...hold a baby.

...forgive someone who has wronged me.

...laugh til I cry with a friend.

...make room in my life for coffee dates with people I miss.

...appreciate beauty when I find it.

...brush my daughter's hair, realizing that in the very near future, she won't want me to do that.

...look into the bright blue sky, and remember that God made this day and I WILL rejoice in it.

...dry the tears of someone I love.

...share a memory with my husband. someone, just to tell them I love them.

...write a note of encouragement.

...take a trip with my girlfriend.

...share a smile with a stranger.

...pray for someone who is hurting.

...cry with someone.

...feed the squirrels.

...listen to birds singing in my back yard. a child play.

...sit under the trees.

No, I'm not resolving to change my life in big ways, but to live my life in small ways that have great meaning.
