There is no doubt that 2014 will be a memorable year for me. My hope is that I will never forget what I have learned this year. Perhaps I will go into the details of what I’ve learned in a future post. For today, I am looking to what 2015 will bring to me and my little ones.
When I was younger, I would do the traditional New Year’s resolutions and list all of the things I would do to improve myself spiritually, intellectually, financially, physically, etc. until one year when one of my college roommate’s and I decided, jokingly, to create a list of what we thought would happen to us over the next calendar year. We completed our wish lists before we left for our Christmas vacations. We threw out random events. Events we hoped for but truly thought would never happen. We laughed so hard about how ridiculous we were being that our sides hurt. We made our lists, folded and taped them up, and wrote on the outside not to open it until the next New Year’s Eve. I don’t recall my list, but I still remember my roommate’s list. Why? Because EVERY SINGLE THING ON HER LIST CAME TRUE. And I was thrilled for her. She is still one of my favorite people.
This year, I plan to make my New Year’s Wish List. I can’t tell you what it will say, of course, except that one wish will be related to cancer recovery. I will write it all down on a piece of paper, fold it, tape it shut and note on the outside “Do not open until December 31, 2015”.
Here’s to a healthy 2015!!
