Starting Today (Take Two)

I was looking back through my past posts & realized there were a lot of things I planned on posting on a regular basis but then I got sick and my posts became mostly about that. I want to get back to the reason this blog was started & that was for me to be honest and write about things I need and want to change in my life & though my illness is a part of that I don't want it to become the focus of this blog.

Starting Today
I will begin to send cards to the people that are special to me just because.

Starting Today
I will worry less about all my medical bills and just trust God to take care of them.

Starting Today
I will spend more time outside and less time watching TV.

Starting Today
I will pray more and study His word more, I haven't been very good at that lately.

Starting Today
I will stop being so stringent about schedules with my kids, at least until school starts for Roo.

Starting Today

I will stop being so hard on myself about all the things I can't get done in one day.

Starting Today
I will make my to do lists more about having fun and spending time with the kids and less about all the chores and errands that need to be done.

What will you do starting today?

I loved this. I would have to agree that that is a great list! I hope that you will be able to accomplish all you start today! Great goals.
Starting today I will make sure that everyday my kids hear me tell them I love them more than ever. i will fill their love tanks everynight before they fall asleep.

Hey there, I saw your comment on JBR's site and thought I'd pop over. I'm right with you about having children giving me the chance to experience a second childhood, without the trauma that my own one had.

Sorry to hear about your seizures. That happened to me as well, from the age of thirty. After hundreds of seizures over the next seven years, an MRI and EEG revealed that I have complex partial epilepsy - something I did not know existed previously.

Loved your starting today comments, especially not being hard on yourself.

Me? I'm going to go and play minigolf with my five year old in a minute...

God bless

Great post Kee!
Starting today, I am going to soak and fill myself up with His love for me before I set out to do anything else because it is in the power of His love that I am empowered to do everything else.

Great list. Sometimes when we put things in writing it gives us a different perspective doesn't it?

Great post! I especially love the one about not being so hard on yourself for all the things you don't get done. There are always going to be those things. May we remember to not take it so seriously.

Take care my friend!
Hope your week is off to a great start!
