We are cold today. So cold it’s painful to walk out and about doing the things needing to be done.
Although it isn’t a cold without noise.
Which makes me happy.
I have been thinking and thinking of what I want to do this year…I no longer make Resolutions–they seem so negative…a take away of sorts. So of course I can never keep them.
I have reached an age where I don’t want to ‘take away’ but to add into my life.
Every morning I read my favorite blogs and visit my friends on FaceBook, happily touching their lives, when I came across Connie’s post for the New Year.
It’s stuck with me for days. She picked one word….just one that would help her strive toward the things she is interested in achieving this year.
So I’ve decided to follow her example and pick one word—
My one word for this year is Resolve.
I want to resolve so many things—finish cleaning out my house, yards, around the farm buildings; getting rid of ‘stuff’, either through selling it or giving it away.
Resolve to see anew objects that have grown familiar and share these new found things with you on my blog.
I would be incredibly happy to finally resolve two family lines in my genealogy. My Dad’s side — the Doyles. And my grandfather’s on my mother’s side — Thomas. I have been stuck for 48 years on those two lines, moving them beyond into the place where they all crossed the pond would be a huge accomplishment.
I would like to use this intention (Resolve) to approach so many things; not resting and hoping I will ‘find the time’ to do this or that, but that I do it!
Time (at my age) is now like a twilight wind; I want to enjoy, love, experience and share each moment to the fullest!
And, yes, I want to continue sharing with you—this tiny piece of life on a farm.
