Happy New Year!

After days of praying I've decided to continue blogging into 2014.  I hope to focus more time on my blog and less time in Facebook.  Time management is going to be key for me!

Tomorrow, as we begin the year, I'll post my 2014 goals.  In the meantime, I thought I would share this list of resolutions that I found on the internet.

New Years Resolutions We All Should Make

1.  Smile More
2.  Spend Less
3.  Stay Active
4.  Don't Worry
5.  Eat Smarter
6.  Pray Harder
7.  Hug Your Loved Ones
8.  Count Your Blessings
9.  Listen Before Speaking
10. Admit When You're Wrong

To Blog Or Not To Blog?

With the new year right around the corner I am taking some time to pray about what my focus should be for 2014.  I haven't been blogging much lately and I'm wondering if I just need to give it up all together.

Originally when I started blogging I was a stay at home wife and wanted to share a glimpse of my life to family and friends as well as have a place to store favorite recipes, projects and memories.
Now my life is very different and I find myself often feeling overwhelmed. 

What I've been learning and realizing is that part of God's unique plan in a husband and wife relationship is balance.  Mike balanced me out, his strong points were my weaknesses, so we completed each other very well.  Each day that goes by without Mike in my life, I realize all the more how blessed I was to have him as my husband.

Now that I am working full time and trying to learn something totally new at work I haven't really had the time or energy to dedicate to blogging.  However, some very special people in my life, like my Grandma and Aunts, read my blog (not so sure any more since I haven't blogged about much lately) and I don't want to just give up that connection.

So for the next few days as we bring another year to a close I'll be praying for God to show me how I should spend my time in 2014.
