This year rolled in quickly. I feel like we were just ringing in 2016. I am grateful to be able to watch another year begin. I can’t wait for the great things 2017 will bring. I don’t know exactly what will happen but there are a few successes I have already thanked God for. Claim it, they say, and it shall be yours. 2017 has been claimed.
This past year was full of ups and downs for us. Blue, our dog, had surgery twice. We call him our million dollar dog because his healthcare cost so much emotionally and financially. He tore a ligament and needed surgery. He was on eight weeks restriction placing us on restriction too! At the end of his lock down he unexpectedly needed two additional weeks due to inflammation. To watch him run and play now is awesome. Before his injury we never dreamt he couldn’t be a dog. Forcing a dog to lay on a pillow for ten weeks is painful. He looks at you with the sad, dark eyes. Now he bounces around and I swear I can almost see a smile on his face…
I have a lot of ideas and plans for this year. I hope that everyone does. I want every dreamer to succeed. I want each person that doesn’t have courage to be courageous. Every builder to build a wonderful life and each lyricist to become an amazing songbird. Use the next few weeks to design your plans for 2017 and work diligently toward making your goals come true. Toss out the resolutions and focus one day at a time on your goals. Embrace the impossible and make things possible!
Happy New Year!!
