2014 Will Be A Year Of Wonder


As I think about 2014 I am bound and determined to make it a great year because it could be my last year of walking and talking. Wow. Writing those words feels crazy. But I don’t want to waste too many moments feeling sad if I can help it because I still have a lot of living to do.

My goals for 2013 did not include dealing with a terminal illness like ALS but sometimes we have to adjust our goals to align with new life challenges. My goals for this year are a little different than last:

  • Love greatly and unconditionally
  • Try to give more than I receive
  • Be extremely grateful
  • Be more faithful
  • Enjoy each person, especially my healthcare providers
  • Learn something new every day
  • Reach 200 blog posts
  • Dance with my fellow classmate Fred Headen at my 40th class reunion (I promised him a dance.)

I’m ready for the challenge.

Happy New Year!
