Hello new year 2020. In a few short hours we will be saying hello to a brand new year. I don’t do resolutions, I find I always fall short and give up about half way through January. I have goals instead. One goal is to get myself back in the gym and hopefully lose some weight in the process. I’m not sure when I’ll fit that in to my schedule especially with school beginning the first weekend of January, but I’ll see how my class goes and then go about getting to the gym. I work the after school program at my school from 3pm-5:30pm, Monday through Thursday. I don’t mind staying late, a lot of my favorite co workers also work the program so it’s a great atmosphere to be in and everyone wants to be there.
We go back to work/school the day after tomorrow. The break did not fly by, it didn’t drag either, I think the time passed at a nice rate. I am ok with returning to work. Not everyone gets a “winter break” I know I’m fortunate and that it’s a perk of working for the DOE.
Another goal I have is to read more scripture. I find when I do actually sit down and read the Bible I want to keep reading and it is satisfying a need to hear from The Lord. He speaks to us through scripture and it’s wonderful and peaceful and always leaves me wanting more. I’m excited that my small group at church (Mom’s if special needs children) is starting a new bible study book. The name of the book is “Beloved” and it’s based on the Beatitudes. We began reading the first pages but then the holidays came around and we’ve been on hiatus. We start meeting again in a couple of weeks.
Welcome 2020! Set goals and be kind to your self and others.
