Peace to you, my sisters!
I have not been around so much, and I think that is what I hope to focus on in the coming year. I want to learn to build my day around my prayers, instead of squeezing my prayers into my day. It is a natural and logical rhythm to embrace, and I am ashamed at how poorly I manage it. It's right there, waiting for me to get it.
kanga, the holidays have always been hard for me.
I think everyone IRL would agree that this year, I did incredibly well. I was very, very clear with the reason I visited my parents. "This is not my celebration. It is yours, and I love you. You do the same for my holidays." How that lightened my burden. I hope you find companionship in faith.
We're also looking at a possible family trip to Morocco in summer. I have to say that recent news has me feeling icky about travel, but fear is no way to live. Dh travels for work, so there is little sense in letting those fears catch hold. Anyway, we're still examining family finances to decide whether we can all make the trip...and I have to find someone to handle the farm in my absence. So we'll see.
Those are the big plans. I'm going to try not to work too much off-farm this year, so we can have a healthier family life. These are my great goals.
Anyway, I hope to keep in touch.
