A little faith and a lot of love go a long way…

Once upon a time…

on December 29, 2012

I’d like to tell you a bedtime story.  Once upon a time there was a horrific monster called the Holiday Beast.  The Holiday Beast devours everyone’s time, patience, and energy leaving only exhaustion and stress behind.  The end.

I met the Holiday Beast.  Hence my lack of blogging.  As the year winds down though things aren’t quite as hectic. Amen.  So here I sit with my glass of wine and an update for my lovely readers, if there are any left.

I’ve continued on with my 30 days of Birthday Kindness. I’d probably have been better about logging/updating about it but I happened to be born during the crazy holiday season which has made that part of the process, the documenting part, much more difficult.  I don’t remember them all, but here are some of the things I did…

*walked the dog for my hubby
*bought and delivered cupcakes to all the teachers in my building who work with my kids but don’t typically get thanked
*picked up lunch for a friend who didn’t have time to do so
*bought a gift card while at Wal-mart and secretly had the cashier give it to the person behind me
*sent a gift card to a mama in need

And I continue on as we get close to the big 3-0 on 1/2/13.  I’m having fun being nice. Who knew?!?! Ha! 😉

Speaking of the big 3-0, 2013 is gonna be a fantastic year I think.  Lots going on worth celebrating, though I believe life is worth celebrating each day.  I kick off the year by turning 30, my Gorilla turns 3 a month later (though we’ve already rolled right into the terrible threes…ya’ll were right…waaaaaaaayyyy worse than the terrible 2’s!), then the next month is my 5 year wedding anniversary…followed by my dad FINALLY retiring at age 71, then the end to a fulfilling but challenging school year, hopefully a beach trip thrown in over the summer and who knows what else life will bring our way.  While thinking about the upcoming year I have decided I’ll be making a bucket list for 2013.  I’m not planning on kicking the bucket in ’13 but I think it’ll be fun and easier to manage being a list of things I’d like to accomplish in my 30th year rather than the remainder of my life.  Stay tuned for my 2013 bucket list.
