New Years Resolution

I don't think that I have ever written down my New Year's goals....well looky here, I now have a blog that I can put it on. So here it goes....
1- Read the scriptures every day...starting with today.
2- Attend the temple once a month
3- Find the joy in my calling and not complain about it anymore
4- Be slower to anger as a mother and wife
5- Be better organized
6- Spend more time playing with my kids
7- Find more opportunities to serve others and teach my kids the importance of service
8- Develop a stronger relationship with my father in heaven
9- Have regular Family Home Evenings
10- Be a better support to my wonderful husband
11- Get our finances in order and reduce our debt
12- Continue building our food storage

Phew! That is quite the list! I know that each of these goals are VERY attainable and I know that I can do it. I can't wait to read this a year from now and see how I did.
Here's to a great 2009!

Jenny, you are so brave! I admire that you are willing to put that on there. I am sorry to say that I have never been good at resolutions, and so I don't like making them. I resolve to change that though. :) heh I applaud you, and I hope you stick with it!! :)

Way to go!

You and I will have to spure each other on with the better mom and wife part and being slower to anger. :)

Jenny, you are the greatest. Thanks for the kind words, honestly I don't know what I would do without our friendship, you mean more than I could ever express. Thank you for that.

Love all your goals, and good idea to put them on your blog, I might just have to do that. You gave me some great ideas. Thanks for having Tay over tonight, he sure had fun. I love that him and Tae are such good friends. Love ya

Great many are the same as mine. The best thing is that we get a new start each year and we can always keep working on being better! I think it's great motivation to put it on your blog and let everyone else see what you're working on...that way it's written down and you're accountable for it!!!
