Chronicles Of A Stay At Home Mom: New Year '08

In my napsack stash
I suppose it’s time to start making my list of all of the great things I want to do for myself in the coming year. To be truthful, I don’t think I’ve ever made a list. I’ve thought about things that I’d like to do and I’ve agreed with others as they expressed their new year desires but, I have never decided to myself that “Yes, Misha, this year you’re going to change….blah”. I’ve heard it’s good to write things down…So, I’ll try it…for the first time.
Recently, I mentioned to David that as a young girl I had a motto it was this: “Always make an impression wherever you go.” And I’ve tried to keep to this for the eleven some odd years since I made it. Well folks, I’m going to renew my promise to myself this coming year in ’08. I want that my character would be something to be remembered and that it would impact people in a positive way. This is a part of myself that I’ve always worked on but, I’m going to work on it even more. Another New Year promise of mine is to made a concerted effort to invite people over and be a good hostess. It’s so easy to let your life control you instead of you controlling your life.
I’m getting nervous now because I’m sure I could sit here and write down a whole host of different areas in my life that I would like to improve but, I won’t. I’ll just stick to a few and when those are done I’ll work on the rest. So, for my last New Year promise I would like to make our house into a Godly home…
The list of my short comings could fill a small book but, these are my priorities for now.
