You have no idea how happy I was when typing the title to this blog post. Although I am dreading coming up with post titles for next year. : ) But, most importantly.....I made it.....I posted a picture of Ana Kate every single day of the year for 2010!! Yay! I am so happy to bring this project to a conclusion. I know I won't be doing it again next year, but will still post often as I've gotten in the habit. I'm just glad I won't feel like I 'have to' post every day. I'm not really sure that it improved my photography, but it does make me feel better about setting a goal and accomplishing it and keeping something going all year.
I don't typically make many New Year resolutions, but I do have a few things I would like to work on in the new year.
- Exercise more (hoping to maintain at LEAST 3 times per week....but love to get in the habit of 5 days per week)
- Eating healthier (mainly cutting out meats, cheeses, and processed/packaged foods).
- Reading my Bible in a year.....I set that goal last year and made it to April, then stopped. I am going to try again and hopefully make it this time! I am also hoping to sign up for a Bible study every spring and fall.
- Take the time to appreciate all my blessings and try not to worry about all the things I can't control.
I also wanted to mention that a very close friend of mine (who is only 37) had a sudden cardiac arrest a few days before Christmas. She has 2 girls under the age of 3 and was in a post office (with her girls)when it happened. Thankfully a bystander performed CPR, the paramedics arrived within 3 minutes and were able to shock her back to life. They are not sure what caused it and cannot find a 'reason', but installed a pacemaker just 'in case' it were to happen again. I spoke with her yesterday and she is doing fine....she's recovering well and will be back to 100% soon. I am SO thankful that she is ok! What a Christmas blessing! I am hoping to be able to visit Robin this year as I have yet to meet either of her girls.
We have had an amazing 2010 and are hoping to have an even better 2011. I am praying for health, happiness, and to focus on the things that really matter. Hope you all have a Happy New Year!
