The First 2020 Day

This new year has slipped up on me.  I can't believe that the new year, the new decade has begun.  I have been looking at posts and it is hard to conceptualize my 2010.  I think a similar situation happened a decade ago.  We had just moved to Arizona with our toddlers.  We were just figuring out our lives.  What had we done?  Had we really left everything behind to start anew in a new place?  I didn't have time to reflect or think.  I was too busy working and surviving.  Life wasn't about reflecting back then.  It was about babies and paying bills and figuring out each day. 

Today I let my children sleep in late, so late.  They are growing so I know that they should sleep.  I remember sleeping in when I was a kid.  I spend the morning praying and reading my Bible.  I read a little bit and I ate something.  I spoke to my comadre, Monica.  I thought about this upcoming year.  What are my hopes?  I don't know.  I have decided not to worry about things.  I had four inches cut off from the bottom of my hair.  They were the deadest ends.  I miss my longer hair but it is so healthy right now.  Healthy, I think that this is the word of the year.  I am going to focus on my health, especially in light of getting bronchitis this past week. So, I think that I need to cut off the dead ends in my life.  I don't mean to cut off people.  I just mean, cut the dead thoughts and attitudes that are not conducive to growth.  

At some point, Janet and I got up and went to buy some stuff.  We were going to the mall but everything closes early today.  We ended up at the park and the sky had decided to give us this beautiful sunset.  I'm taking as a good sign.  Janet and I spent some time just hanging out.  It was great.  I then got to hang out with my gorgeous friend, Sochilt.  You know what life is about?  It's about the little things.  It's about hanging out with my children when they let me.  It's about seeing sunsets.  It's about making time with friends.  This year, this decade, I'm praying that it will be about God first, family and friends.  I'm going to focus on being present.  I am not going to stop writing.  I found that this is what I need to be doing.  Thank You, Jesus for allowing me to share my life with whoever wants to read about it.  I hope that I continue to reflect You well.
