A Jumble for the New Year

A Jumble for the New Year

Most New Year’s blogs will discuss goals, things like weight loss, eating healthier, etc. I thought I’d just send out a jumble of thoughts I’m having right now. First and foremost, I hope you all had a blessed Christmas. I had a great time with my family, especially the four-year-old granddaughter. It’s always great to see the holiday through her eyes.

Get Your Mind Out of the Past

Too many of us look behind trying to understand why our lives are the way they are. Sure we’ve all made mistakes that have cost us, whether it be monetary or personal.
