January Currently!

Happy 2016!!

I am so grateful for this time to be able to join back in with Currently to start the new year!



Listening -  I'm listening to football bowl games, but I'm not really watching now that my favorite team finished winning for the day.

Loving - The family time over the break has been a huge blessing for me.  Being a full time grad student, working full time and being a full time taxi for kid activities at night made for a crazy fall.  So, I have enjoyed every single minute of this "grad school free" break.

Thinking - I'm ready to take on 2016!  When you are a goal setter each year is an opportunity to work toward those goals, to learn and to grow.  My husband and I spent a lot of time over the break talking to our kids about setting goals, taking risks to try new things, focusing on doing the right thing, celebrating your own personal growth and respecting the goals and hard work of others.

Wanting -  We need a new couch.  Our couch is fine if you only have 2 people sitting in the room.  We've been looking for new couches, but I'm picky (and so is my husband).  We're practicing patience while we search for exactly what we want.  Then our old (perfectly fine, but not big enough couch) will be moved to our lake house.

Needing - Notice I said "practicing" patience above.  Some people are naturally patient.  Some of us have to practice it. Some people have none and don't know that they should try to get some.  I'm in the need to practice category.  I'm a get things done kind of person, who practices patience on a daily basis.  Some days are more successful than others, but every new day is another opportunity for practice.

One Little Word -   Faith is my one little word for this year.  Faith was my one little word a few years ago.  However, that year I was asking for faith.   Now, I am going to let my faith help me with the patience thing while I listen to the lyrics of Bob Marley's, Three Little Birds in my head.


Cause every little thing gonna be alright!

Sending Farley well wishes, since she has been sick for a few weeks.  
Visit her to join in the fun!


Happy New Year!
Carpe diem!

  1. Couches are so expensive! And it's such a commitment! I've been looking for a new one for a while and just can't make up my mind! Hope you find one soon! Happy New Year!

  2. We are totally in the market for a couch, too! It's so exciting, but a lot of pressure! I love how your family talks about goal-setting so much together - super sweet! Happy 2016!
