Friendship Friday - Resolutions

     Let's Get Social Sunday
My husband asked me (on a day I was not feeling overly capable) what I wanted for Christmas, to which I replied, "To be a better wife and mother".  Yeah, it was that kind of day.
So when I started to think of resolutions, that idea popped up again.  I'm not saying I'm hopeless at wife- and motherhood, but I won't be writing textbooks on the subject anytime soon either.  This idea brought me to the Bible verses I memorized some time ago (but have since partly forgotten) about the "Proverbs 31 Woman".  That seems to be a good place to start for me.
Each month I will focus on an idea from the verses in Proverbs 31:10-31 and work to incorporate it into my life.
I will never be "perfect"...AND THAT IS OK!  But by putting one foot in front of the other, hour after hour, day after day ... by the end of the year I'll be a darn sight better than I have been this past year ... AND THAT IS GREAT!
Feel free to join me on this journey.  Also I'd love to hear your resolution/s for 2013.  By clicking the above button, you can read the ideas others have had and maybe share your own!
Happy Birthday to my brother today (12/29) and Happy New Year to you all!
