New Year's Resolutions

If you're anything like me, you've made resolutions to lose weight, do devotions daily, be nicer to your family, and have a home-cooked meal on the table every night by 5:30. While there's nothing wrong with those resolutions, if you're anything like me, you've already broken at least one of them--and it's only two days into the new year.

Instead, let's resolve this year to let go of the mom/wife/friend guilt we carry around. Just think how much lighter we'd be without all of that extra baggage! When our resolutions go out the window with the leftover Christmas fudge, resolve to be make more healthy choices the next time. When we hit the snooze alarm one too many times to complete our devotions before the kids clamor for breakfast, resolve to sneak in a little quiet time later in the day instead of giving up. Let's resolve that the occasional drive-through meal doesn't mean the end of our home dinners resolutions.

Deal? I'm in for less personal guilt, how 'bout you?

P.S. - If one of your New Year's resolutions is to be more organized, stick around.  :-)
