2012 are you? Thank you for the new grace that a new year brings. I spend time this morning praying, repenting, and making plans to be the best version of Myowne that I could possibly be. I won't get into what all those plans are but what I will say is I am so glad you are here. There were times last year that I didn't know whether I would see you or not. Life was grueling, I gained and lost love, made some stupid and selfish decisions, and learned some great lessons by the end of the year that I would do well not to repeat.


I am glad you are here.

I am not going to start out demanding that you give me anything this year. I plan instead to give you me...more of my time and talent, more of my heartfelt attention, and I definitely don't plan on wasting you, since now I am aware more than ever that life is so precious.

This year, God willing, I will be 35.

This year, God willing, my 3rd book will be coming out and my 4th book will be well on its way.

This year, God willing, I will start an Etsy site so I can sell paintings, drawings, and pottery online.

This year, I will be grateful for every day instead of treating each day like a repeat of the last.

2012...I am so glad we have been formally introduced, since we have never met before. I am honored to be with you, to see you, to get to know you. Let's ride!
