Whispering Encouragement on New Year’s Day

Thinking about New Year's resolutions typically make me feel burdened. Maybe that's because my every day is full of lists of tasks I want to get done or things I want to achieve. This year, I wrote down a few simple thoughts that whisper encouragement to me in this new year. I hope they will do the same for you.

    AHHHH…..how beautiful, Kristie. This is the kind of morning for whispers. These are the right kind of commitments to make–those of the heart and the character.  The last one speaks to me particularly. It will take much work, but with such a vision in mind, I will make it. Our grandson Codi left yesterday, so it is too quiet around here….but post-teenager is a bit of a clean up!  Our empty nest will get feathered in a fresh way. Blessings upon your New Year, Kristie.

    Kristie, I always enjoy every new idea – especially these New Year resolutions which should be globally what people want for ourselves and all our familes, communities and neighbors.  Thank you for the honesty, the softness and the gentleness of the way you expressed these sentiments.

    A. Perry, Greensboro, NC  Happy New Year and hope life is continuing to be good to you.

    All the best in the new year for you and your family, Kristie. I've really enjoyed following your blog. I, too, spend the days reflecting and striving to live a life that gives me and those around me joy. So I really appreciate your sentiments. I would also add that I hope we all remember to see the humour in our lives and  laugh as much as possible. Living a life that shows you respect yourself and others will allow you to leave a great legacy. Cheers!
