Mom, Could You Pencil Me in for a Nap? September 2010
Admittedly, this is a very small audience in the grand scheme of blogging. I thank all of my loyal readers for keeping me inspired to write over the past year. I had committed to writing once a week, and as you can see, I fell far short of that. Writing every other week for a working mother of three small children has proven to be more realistic.
What topics on mothering, working from or staying at home, faith, families or babyhood would you like to explore in 2011? Are you resolved to improve any particular area of your life and looking for more encouragement?
I usually try to make a broad resolution for the year, to help improve many areas of my life. Last year, I resolved to spend regular time in meditation, and am happy to report that this practice has brought about noticeable positive changes for me.
This year, I resolve to use my talents to serve God. Remembering this and striving to do this each week will certainly assist many areas of my life. From motherhood and marriage, to my professional career and my position within my community, I can’t think of one simpler way to experience joy.
I also have one specific resolution for 2011: to get out from behind the computer and spend more time face-to-face with the people who are most important to me. While I love to write and will continue, nothing replaces the physical energy of connection that you experience when in the presence of another like-minded being. I hope you all will explore the power of this connection over the year as well.
Grace, peace and happy new year.
