Forward Thinking

There are (amazingly) only 20 days left in 2012. Where has this year gone? When I look back on the year, so much has happened and so much has changed. I am grateful for the lessons learned - even if some were learned the hard way. One of the greatest lessons of this year for me has been "letting go" of a lot of things and re-priortizing my life (and time) to reflect things that have eternal significance. I am in no way in a "good" place with that, but I am in a better place than I was in 2011. 

So that has me thinking about 2013 and what I need to do to be in a better place at this time next year. What are YOUR plans for 2013? What changes do YOU want/need to make in your life? Do you have a plan of action yet? Now is the time to start thinking about these things so that when January 1 arrives, you are ready to go! Would love to hear your thoughts and plans...mine are coming soon. Stay tuned.

Going back...

I'm going back to Haiti! My church has committed to supporting a medical mission to Anse a Pitre May 25 - June 1, 2013. I'm so excited I can hardly stand it! Jeff is planning to go this time as well as several dear friends. I cannot wait to share this experience with them!

I'm also going back to running. I have signed up for a 5K on December 18 and have done really well with the training so far. I am  surprised at how quickly the miles came back...guess that means my body is finally convinced it is a "runner's body." Maybe? I'm hoping these extra 10 pounds will drop soon so I can get my speed (that is a relative term, folks!) back, but for now I'm content to enjoy the Holiday Hustle 5K with good friends and soak in the beauty of Christmas lights in Canton. 

Another great connection between the two topics? Check out the 5K Run/Walk we're sponsoring to raise money for our trip! (Nicely done, right?)

Hope everyone is doing great and my apologies for being "gone" so long. I'm committing to more - but shorter - posts in the future...until I get overwhelmed at work again. :-P

Merry Christmas!
