My Ten LONG Resolutions

~I will clean the house less frequently, because one child reading a picture book of mine at bedtime is worth all the dust bunnies in the world.
~I will invite more people over to dinner this year than last so I can eat my husband’s fabulous cooking more often.
~I will finish “the novel” I started because I have no reason not to. Plus, I will try not to end my sentences with a preposition.
~I will continue to curl up in bed with my teen and pre-teen before they fall asleep because this is when they tell me all their dreams.
~I will blog because it’s a necessary evil, and I will eat my nuts, fruits and veggies while I blog, for the same reason.
~I will have more Friday night family game nights so I can become a Scrabble whiz and cream Lisa during the next retreat (she knows who she is), and become better at crossword puzzles so dementia won't set in. Wait, what was I talking about?
~I will pack my gym clothes and put them into the car with every intention of hitting Planet Fitness on my way home from work, but I may wait until February when the parking lot is empty.
~I will teach my girls to do more chores like cleaning the grill and washing the parakeet cage.
~I will greet my husband with a bow in my hair and a grin on my face when he returns home from work. Cut, Cut, that would be frightful. How about, I will go on more dates with my husband when he’s traveling overseas?
~And my favorite resolution, I will spend time with those seniors who are alone and unable to get out and about. Oh, that’s part of my job. Lucky me! But I will treasure those times all the more!

Matthew 25:35-40 
For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, 36 I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.
