January 2, 2012. So, how is the new year going so far? Around here we're doing just fine, thank you. The Christmas decorations are all back in their boxes and headed to the attic, and Rich has patiently requested that the house be glitter-free by sundown. I'll see what I can do...

In my reading recently I came across a quote I found extremely meaningful to me, and I thought it'd share it today:

"Life can turn on a dime. The direction you head when it does makes all the difference."  —Oliver Harris

Making correct choices. Doing the right thing, even if it may seem unpopular. Taking the high road as we travel along life's journey. All of these are so important, as is listening to that still, small voice. These are my goals for the coming year.

So here's to a new year, and to making it count.

"Life is what you make of it. Always has been, always will be."  —Grandma Moses

"To achieve a goal you have to do something... nothing much was ever accomplished by just standing around wishing."  —unknown
