I have spent the last few months focusing on being, resting, embracing small steps in a new direction, attending to new priorities, remembering what is true, holding onto hope, and being a person of encouragement in the midst of transition. And doing all that means that goals took a back seat. I’m ok with that.
Where did May go? This month goes so fast in our family – mother’s day, wedding anniversary, school ending activities, planning for summer camps, Bill’s birthday… so much to do in May. So much.
