There is something about the New Year rolling around that always makes me look back. A friend of mine from high school used to call me nostalgic. For some reason, back then, I took that as a criticism, not sure why, I don't think she meant it as such. But these days of two young kids, a husband, home, part-time job, et cetera, et cetera.. looking back feels like a luxury.
However, each year I make a point of doing some emotional and spiritual housecleaning to clear away the cobwebs and the things I'm holding onto, to help move forward with a clean slate. The way I have chosen to do this for probably about ten years now is to journal through the following questions that were given to me by a friend a ways back, and I want to share them with you.
I want to add just a couple:
I want to encourage you, challenge you even, to carve out time in the first couple weeks of January, with a notebook and pen in hand, and a steaming cup of coffee, tea or hot chocolate by your side, and just sort through these questions - just think through your past year as if sifting through treasured photographs, answering them as honestly as you can, and then spend a few moments thanking God for taking such sweet, intimate care of you and your loved ones this year - through the good and the bad.
Happy New Year, Moms!
