Thankful Thursday – New Beginnings

I love Mondays and January 1sts and September school starts. I love new beginnings. I know that a lot of people don’t like or believe in New Year’s Resolutions, but I like the idea of looking back on the year that has gone by and making plans and setting goals for the year ahead.

I’m thankful for the opportunity to be able to look back, to look forward and to help direct my own life. To be able to think about the things that I am passionate about, to look at areas that can be improved, to celebrate victories.

Bright Starts and New Beginnings

I made a list of goals at the beginning of 2016 and it’s cool to be able to look back and see that I achieved some of those goals. I didn’t complete them all, but I made progress and that’s what is important.

Not everyone has the chance to plan and dream, many people have to simply survive. I am thankful for the opportunity and don’t take it lightly as the New Year begins.

Day 37 – Power Grid. We own over 200 games. We’ve taken it upon ourselves to go through and play them all as a family – rating them as we go to decide which ones we love and want to keep and which ones it’s time to let go of. Zane won this game. Jude second. Mom and Dad not so much…
