Sunday Sunshine 12.19.10

2011 is approaching.  I spent my night away writing out some of my spiritual, family, nutritional, career, social and educational goals.  But I don’t have a “theme” to my year.  Have you ever done that?  Picked a word or phrase that embodies your year?  I often see them in retrospect, like when I’m writing our Christmas letter.  But I don’t think I’ve ever done it in advance.  One author, whose blog archives I could pick through for days, called 2010 The Year of Yes.  I love that.

I recently ordered myself a book about intentional mothering.  I’m calling it my New Year’s gift to myself.  God has really graced me with an increased passion for mothering.  I am looking at this passion as it was given: an undeserved, shining, precious gift.  I know that it won’t look so bright every day.  The battle for our attention and devotion is a constant one, but Love, in Christ, wins.  I know that and have faith in it.  So I will lean and trust as, each day, I put one foot in front of the other.

In other news, this had me laughing out loud.
