Some Days...

Today was a day where I got to learn a lesson the hard way. It's what you could say is the 'typical' way I learn things. But I've been gently pushed shoved into a new direction.

My name means bringer of light. It's time I fulfilled my name destiny.

I will be working on this.

New Year, New Me.

No make-up?!?

A little chubby...

even more tired.


This year looks great.

I'm working on my family. (Implementing Digital Free Sundays - no computer - no smart phone stuff)

I'm working on my body. (a BIG race, this year)

I'm working on my mind. (4 Grad School Classes)

I'm working on my soul. (Temple - 4 Visits - One visit for each child)

My inspiration for these goals.

Cheers to you this Happy New Year!
