We did get to take a family walk before the girls went to bed, in the fading light, and that was beautiful!
I will be the first to admit that 2011 is not a year that I am sad to see go and going to bed at 9:30 will mean I'm rested today. The changing of the year may be symbolic, but as someone who's ready for a fresh start, I'm excited to embrace that symbolic change by making some changes, big and small, in the upcoming year.
The first of those changes will be focusing on living right now, in the moment, rather than wishing that I could fast-forward blank number of months to an imagined time when things might be bit easier!
Now to get ready for Mass! Happy Solemnity of Mary! And if you have a New Year's Post join the link up party going on at Michelle's Blog Liturgical Time! I just discovered it and it's a new favorite!
