1.  Help people.  Yes, if you ask me, I'm there, but I really want to reach out beyond my comfort zone to help. I want to look into more volunteer opportunities.

2.  Improve myself inside and out.  There is only one person who can guide me and you know who He is.

3.  Become a better wife and mother.  This is so cliche, I know.  However, I hate being stagnant.  There is always room for improvement.  I'm positive my husband and children will have no problem directing me in the right direction :)

4.  Continue to fight for Sadie.  Sometimes the weight of it all is smothering, and I need to re-group.  I must decide what further testing we will do, be more stringent with all of her therapies, and accept that she will be in a special needs class within the next year (and actually let her attend! :) )  We will tour some facilities in March. Gulp.

5.  Work.  Is it possible?  Who knows...but if I put my mind to it, I can accomplish anything.  This I know.

6.  Cook more.  Not the same old tacos, chicken, and roast for the boys and not the same old hummus, goat cheese, and avocado for the girls.  I must learn to follow a recipe and actually look some up! 

7. Mark some items off of my "bucket list".  I already have a few things in mind for the upcoming year :)

Happy New Year!
