Looking Forward to 2017

You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.--C. S. Lewis
With the beginning of a new year, it is that time again to reflect on the past year and make some New Year's Resolutions.  I am pleased with doing pretty well at keeping mine from the last few years.  I know often times, people make them and by February or March they have gone by the way side.  The secret is to make ones that are practicable and obtainable.

It's funny how our dreams change.  When I was a little kid my dream was to grow up and marry a little league baseball coach, live in a big ranch house with a ball field in our backyard, have nine boys and a pet for each of them and be a stay-at-home mom. I think I gave up on this dream when I got to be about 11 years old, maybe even sooner--I at least have 3 pets.

My goals for this year are to (1) try something new or go somewhere new at least once a month; (2) play at least once a week--even during the winter months and (3) surprise people with kind acts.

My dream is to grow old with Gerard and both be healthy enough to be active, independent and have fun without going broke and serve the Lord all the days of my life. 

What about you?  Any dreams you would like to share?  How do you do on your New Year's Resolutions?

Adventure, play and kindness are great goals Karen! I'm sure you'll keep those up all year too!

I like your goals. They are attainable, kind, and make the world a better place.

I've been so busy goofing around with my family, that I have forgotten to set some goals. Maybe I will read more...and travel again. I am aiming to either like my job better or leave.

Thanks for the push in thinking about my 2017 goals!
