- At Home
This past year wasn’t one that I was anxious to see end. 2011 was an extraordinary period in my life:
Lots of fun and exciting projects are in the works, but what I am most proud of this year is the love and energy in my home. It has taken many years to understand and accept the many different personalities, so that we may all find our own happy space under the same roof.
2011 was challenging and demanding but the year's end marked the beginning of a new time for my family. A time for more compassion, patience, common goals, respect for each other’s differences and support for each other’s individual paths. I didn’t hope for much more than that. A happy home, for me, breeds all great things in my life outside my home.
My daughter will turn five this Sunday, OMG! My son is finally developing his own BOY characteristics and becoming a little gentleman. My oldest will leave her school to move on to middle school and begin a new chapter, and my 9-year-old is finally discovering her own talents. They are all so musical and artistic. This holiday we finally came together to enjoy each other’s talents as a family. One singing, one on piano, one dancing, one directing…and me on my video camera soaking in every moment. I wish for moments like that too often.
This year, I plan to celebrate long after the New Year is old news. I will be celebrating life, health, family and dear friends. My wish for all of you is a year filled with love, blessings, sunny days, occasional rainbows, “shooting stars if you’re lucky," as my son believes, laughter, success, honesty, courage and determination.
If you haven’t set your goals for 2012, get to it because you’ve already missed one week. This could be the best year of your life…. that’s what I’m shooting for.
