New years resolution.

I have been thinking about new years resolutions for a few days here. Being in holiday mode really doesn't help me feel too motivated to make one. I am just enjoying so much sitting around and doing what I want for a lot of the day. I love having the break from home school and just spending time with our children doing fun activities.

I was thinking the other day that there are many things I would like to happen in 2011 but there is nothing I can do to bring them about.

Things like a cure for type one diabetes. I would just love there to be a cure but it isn't something I can do myself. I can support research that looks promising and pray for one but the cure really is out of my hands.

Thinking along these lines, I decided that maybe instead of writing a list of things I want myself to do this year, maybe it would be good to have a list of what I hope will happen. So these are the things I hope for in 2011:

1) A cure for type 1 diabetes.

2) People that support abortion will see the evil that it is.

3) To become closer to God through prayer, reading the bible, attending mass and reconciliation.

4) To spend more time playing with my children.

Do you have any hopes for the new year?

I often choose a motto or word or theme for the year........ Like your wishes !

Leonie, I just posted on another blog I read that hope is going to be my word for the year.

Therese, We both have the same word, HOPE, for 2011. I loved your comment on my blog, especially your friends thought on "hugs from God". What a beautiful way to look at things! Your list of hopes for the new year is one that we can all agree with and pray for. I would only add help and comfort for all those suffering the ravages of cancer as well as obtaining peaceful hearts and enlightenment for those who mourn a loss in their lives whether it be through death, divorce, employment, or loss of health. There is power in prayer, and I know our prayers will be heard. I hope the coming year brings you and your family all of the hopes and desires you long for. God bless you.

That is a great list, I truly hope it all comes about this year. My word for the year is "surrender". I can't do most things but God can do everything.

I was thinking of again choosing a word for the year. Last year (2010) my word was "care". This year I think it will be "share". Just to share myself with my family, my community, and others who would benefit from my gifts - be it the gift of my presence, my time, my talents, my money, or my prayers. Just to really be mindful that "to whom much is given, much will be expected", and that there is a lot more than I can do than I am doing.

Thanks everyone for the new year wishes and for your comments.

I hope 2011 is a great year for all of you.

Please pray for a cure for Type One Diabetes

Our sons Tom and Christopher and our daughter Amelia are type one diabetics. We pray everyday for a cure. We do not want one by illicit means though so don't support any organisation that contributes to Embryonic Stem Cell Research. Click on the photo of Tom and Christopher to read about why I am against using Embryonic Stem cells for a cure.
