Resolutions for the New Year...

Resolutions for the New Year

1. I resolve to work to have a spirit of loveliness that shines forth in all that I do.

2. I resolve to help my husband out on a daily basis in unexpected ways. I will try to choose things that help him maximize the time he has to work and relax and also add a bit of pleasure to his day. Some of my ideas are: driving to get the church's mail (a 30 to 40 minute endeavor), taking care of the banking (dropping off checks), making him hot cocoa with whipped cream, stocking our freezer with his favorite ice cream, offering to do evening prayers as a family, creating moments for him to be able to enjoy spending time with our daughter (i.e. not dumping her on him when she is cranky, hungry, or has a dirty diaper after he has had a distressing day... instead giving her to him when she is at her best and so that they can have a good time together rather than a frustrating one), etc.

Hello, I was looking for your old blog as it had a lovely story in it about the singing house. Have you deleted your blog? If so do you still have a copy of that story as I can't find it on the net.

Thanks ever so much

Thanks Emma, I found it. I love that story. I want my house to be a singing house this year.
