The Simple Woman's Daybook {January Edition} For Today

Looking out my window... sunny and hope the ice will finally melt away
I am thinking... when God led me to the word change for this year I had no idea the changes that were ahead for me and my family Still not sure how all the changes are going to play out and prayers still needed and appreciated
I am thankful... it has warmed up some and at least my water is no longer frozen

One of my favorite things... making memories with my grands  Playing in the snow, we got around 4 inches which is very unusual Snow ice cream was a must
I am wearing... Tshirt, sweatpants, compression socks, wool socks and tennis shoes

Changes, happening, facing, accepting and making!

     I knew when God led me to the word "Change" for this year, well it meant change was going to be coming in my life.  I was hoping for losing the 25 pounds I gained back after losing 80 last year and hopefully losing the rest of the weight I need to lose.  I was hoping to read the bible through this year, focus more on self care, focus more on date nights and spending time with my husband.  I was hoping for more game nights with my family and grands.  These were changes I was ready to welcome and looked forward to.  

     I still look forward to some of these changes I hope but some of the changes that have happened so far this year were not ones I was expecting or even looking forward to.  Not sure some of them are the changes I would have chosen for me or the ones I love but they are the ones that have happened.  However I am learning that if change doesn't happen, life becomes stagnant and sometimes it just brings sadness and not the joy, peace or happiness we want …

New year, new day, new chances!

Its January 1st, what changes do you want to make in your life?  What do you want to start doing?  What do you want to stop doing?  There will never be a better day that now to make these changes.  It is day 1, new year, new month, new week, new day,  What is stopping you? My year for 2018 is "Change". Many changes need to be made.  Some will be easy, some will be hard, some will not be wanted and some will fall by the wayside.  But 2018 here I am and with God by my side I am going to face them all head on and in a year if I am sitting here I hope I have good reports to share.  I will proud of what I succeeded at forgive me and others for failures but I just want to be closer to where and what God wants me to be.   God bless and lets get this started!
