It has been a very long time since I have written anything at all on my blog. It has been a rough few years, but we are still going strong. I retired from the Postal Service and am home now. I have seen three new grandchildren born and was able to babysit one of them for the past 2 1/2 years. It has been a blessing in so many ways.
I am sure I will have more to write about life at a later date. Today I want to write about current events and how I am changing because of them.
Every year, I choose one word to work on throughout the year. I do not do resolutions. I think those just set us up for failure in our lives. Life is hard enough without failing every single year. So, I choose a word that I work on throughout the year. Past words have included:
tenacity, strength, compassion, repentance and love.
This year, I am seriously going bigger with my word. My word this year is Savior. Not in the way that I want to be Him. There was only ever one perfect person in the world and I am not, nor never can be Him. But, I can strive in my day to day like to be more like Him.
I want to love better, accept more, judge less and learn of Him. I want my life to reflect His teachings.
I love my Savior I want to be a better person. I want to change who I am and become someone that I can admire and want to be around.
You see, I know He lives. I know He loves each of us I know that I can become more like He would have me be.
