Happy New Year

2014. Here's to hoping it's better than 2013. Not that it was a bad year. There was many things to be thankful for and everyone stayed healthy. But it ended a little rocky for me. But I'm looking forward, not back. 

I just spent an hour and a half on a new website. I'm inspired to try the Joy Challenge. There is a prompt - 3 things to be thankful for each day. Here goes:

Jan 1, 2014 - 3 things heard
Voices - the voices of my family, espically those of my boys as they wished me happy new year at midnight. And their laughter as they teased each other through out the day.

Music - I love lots of different types of music but today I'm thankful for the worship music I got to listen to on the drive back from the New River. Different artists all singing praise to God. Happy to say I knew most of the songs and could sing along.

Tick-tock - the ticking of my grandmother's clock as I sit here typing. It makes me think of her often. 

I'm also going to pick a word for this year. Forward. Moving forward into a new year; not looking back. And I'm clinging to something I just read at - 

“We are all going to botch it somedays. We all sometimes get the notes wrong. But the song only goes wrong when we keep thinking back to the wrong notes."
“When a piece starts to fall apart — fall forward. Fall forward into the next bar. Moving forward is what makes music.“
