FAITH FORWARD FRIDAY: RESOLUTION 2008: THE YEAR OF LOVE AND HAPPINESS

Hip HIP HOORAY! I made it through and into the New Year! And I made it through drinking mojitos and champagne...thanks to my Sister-friend JB. We decided we would party into the New Year and refused to set up shop at the lonely hearts club. I am so glad, a party was just what the Dr. ordered, complete with noise makers, confetti, hats, beads and lots of healthy and delicious foods. So here I am 4 days into the New Year and I am tackling my grand resolutions. I am trying to go vegan...it may prove a bit harder than anticipated. But here's the thing, NOTHING IS WRITTEN IN STONE. I am a grown woman with a grown woman's mind so I can go at my own speed. Whatever goals and resolutions I have set for myself...are set for myself. Failure is not in my vocabulary anymore. I will say that I haven't worried about anything...nothing...nada. My home situation is still as it was--I am still in my house. My bills are miraculously getting paid..barely, but paid all the same. My kids are all feed and somewhat healthy--this is the season of colds. My optimism is at an all time high. 2007 is in my rear-view mirror and is getting farther and farther from sight. I am looking forward to the year ahead but I am enjoying "right now" and that is my best resolution so far.

The positivity in this post is contagious! Good for you and your friend for CELEBRATING the new year!

And veganism. Wow. I was vegan for a couple of years. Loved it. Only went back to fish and chicken because I discovered sushi. ;-)
