As I meditate during these days Holy Nights, I revisit my path these past 12 months and my intentions for the New Year.
I found a poem that I wrote at the end of 2007 when I was trying to slow down and be more present and "in the moment".
" Dirt and dust will always be
but not the little girls I see
they will grow and go away
while the grime will always stay
so, I choose to play and roam
instead of scrubbing down this home
they'll remember times of fun
and not the cleaning that was done."
For busy moms, the New Year is a time of reflection, but more important it is a time to start anew. A fresh start.
