Holy New Years Eve

I’m feeling so “hopeful” about the New Year !

New Years is such a relaxing holiday…There is no pressure. We just cook , hang out and kinda consider the new year.

My grandmother always makes a poster for the new year. With goals and dreams.She has done this as long as i can remember. We are going to make a really simple one with the kids today.

As i think about the new year, there are so many things i want to do that can bring my family and i closer to Heaven.

Isn’t that really the point? Bring our families and those around us to heaven. How can we be holier? How can we include God in different parts of our lives?

Here are some of the things i have been considering …

Kindness:

_____________- this individual bothers me.

This year every time i hear their name or think of them in anyway, i will say “Lord, bless so and so”

Prayer:

I want to order and read this book over the next year:

Practicing the Presence of God

I want to get back to reading the readings of the day in the morning.

I want to get back to praying the rosary at lunchtime.

Person:

I really want to simplify my eating habits, and i need to focus on enjoying cooking and serving my family through the kitchen. I don’t like cooking or cleaning from cooking or shopping or putting away food or meal planning. Too bad , i will slowly do it.

Spouse:

I don’t know. Lol.

I’ll have to think about this.

Home:

Continue to try to live with less.

Kids:

I want to really look at them when they talk to me.

Finances:

Begin again with budgeting. Track spending.

I’m so excited about the new year!! I feel like God will bless my efforts and hope in the new year.

I hope that you are hopeful in the new year. I don’t want it to pass me by. I don’t want to be so productive it just whips by.

I’m hoping to slow it down this year.
