Okay I have a long list again this year. I always do. My way of thinking it that if I make lots of promises to myself I will at least achieve some of them. Last year I only made a few. The big one was to quit smoking for good and I truly have done that. I quit before the lung mass was found and when that happened I lost all desire to return to smoking. Every time I go to the store and see people paying so much for cigarettes I am even happier I made that change! Now what is it going to take to get me to lose all these extra pounds and become more active? Well I have a different approach this time around so I think I will be successful in that. I will write a bit about that here.

Two other resolutions that are very important to me are to really finish the Book of Mormon study I started and to really be aware of opportunities to serve. I think I have missed a lot of chances to make a difference in other people’s lives because I have been too wrapped up in me and my problems to notice what is happening in other people‘s lives. . I really hope I can change that this year more than anything else.

One more resolution that will be a fun one I think, is to use my creativity more. I think about doing all sorts of things but it rarely gets further than thinking, I will write about that here too. It may be cooking, crochet, sewing or crafts. I guess I will just see where it takes me.

So here is to a great 2010, making the right changes and sticking with them!

Happy New Year!!!

I Know

there are just a very few friends that read this but you are all people who have stood by me during the challenges I have faced this fall. Thank God for you all. You have made my life so much easier, my faith so much stronger and really have been my strength here on earth. Thank you and Merry Christmas!

In God's Time

 A lesson well learned for me is that God will do things when it is the right time. I am not always as patient as I should be. I often think why is this taking so long, or why now? But Heavenly Father knows better than I. His blessing always come at the right time. When I pray and believe that God will take care of it He does. Not always that minute or even that year. Trusting that He knows whats best and when is best is the key.
