Full of promise and rife with possibility.
The last couple days of 2012 are winding down and I'm looking towards 2013 with enthusiasm. I think I'll forgo the usual resolutions and instead make a list of things to explore this year. Books to read, new things to learn, experiences to try.
I've also chosen a phrase that I'm going to try to keep close to my heart this year. It's from the Prayer of St. Francis . . . grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand.
That last part is something I've been pondering of late, amazed at the grace it has brought into my life. It's interesting how a phrase can bring to light, something that should be so obvious.
Wishing everyone a happy and healthy 2013!
