New Year, New Goals

24 09 2017

Well, hello there!

Grab yourself a chair!  Pull up a comfy blanket.  Maybe your favorite hot beverage.  Oh?  What’s that you say?  You don’t have a hot beverage?  Well, gimme just a second here.

Okay let me see.  I’ve got some assorted teas here, I’ve got a ton of coffee.  Oh I know the can feels a little on the light side.  Trust me, I have another bag in the freezer.  I’ve also got some of this delicious hot chocolate.  Trust me, it’s super tasty.

You’ve chosen, have you?  Let me get the water.  You go on over there and sit down, make yourself comfy.  I’ll finish up over here.  What mug do you want?  It doesn’t matter?  Okay, I’ll grab my favorite for you.  I’ll grab you a spoon and you’re almost all ready to go.

How’s my year going so far?  I’m so glad you’ve asked.  Honestly, last year was so very good.  It truly was so very good.  I felt like I was growing so immensely much.  I’m honestly excited for this year!  There’s so many good things that I feel are going to happen!  It’s partly all because of you.  Your endless support, reading all of my posts, facebook comments, seeing my pictures, the texts of encouragement….it’s all been so super helpful.  It reminds me that others are supportive and encouraging me.  Seussical was the best musical I’ve directed, and it was so fun!

Your water is ready dear.

Now that you’re back, my current year is going well.  I have a few hiccups, but I’m sure I’ll get them all trained like I want them to be.  But I do want to tell you of my goal for the year.

This year, I’m doing a few things differently than in the past.  I’m going to be finding a new church to attend.  And I’m sure I’ll tell you of those adventures as I go about that.  But my theme for this year, my mantra so to speak, is going to be one single word:  GIVING.

No, I’m not just talking about money, but I’m going to be giving of my time and my efforts.  I’m going to try to not be so selfish with myself and invest in others.  You and so many other people like you have been investing in me, and I haven’t been that encouraging person, that person that is giving and helping.  Where you’ve been helping me and reaching out to me, I want to start doing that for you and for all the people like you that have been loving on me and encouraging me.  Thank you so much.  You have no idea how much each text or phone call meant.  Each offer to help and each reaching out to love on me.  It’s all been so super amazing, and I’m so very fortunate to have as many people loving on me as I do.  But I need to start loving back on others.  Start giving words of encouragement and start reaching out and offering hope.  Letting others know that I care about them.

Are you done?  Another?  No?  Okay, let me take this to the kitchen.

So how are you?  How’s life?

You’re a fantastic person.

I’m so glad that I have you in my life.

Do you know that you’re underappreciated for what you do?

You are worth the extra mile.

I grow so much from you.

Thank you for all you do for me.

How can I help you?

Do you want another?
