I gave up on making resolutions awhile ago because I would become too depressed when I’d break them at 3 p.m. on New Year’s Day. It’s hard to stay resolute when there’s a plate of Christmas cookies calling your name. So I figure, “Why set myself up for failure?” Instead of resolutions, I have a list of hopes for 2007. Here they are:
After a rocky 2006, I hope for good health in 2007. I hope my MS stays quiet this year, and that nothing else unexpected crops up.
I hope Sydney continues to excel in school, and that she doesn’t develop an interest in boys.
I hope Molly decides to use the potty sooner rather than later so she can start preschool in the fall.
I hope Leigh’s interest in photography “develops” into more than a hobby – she’s AMAZING!
I hope Community Christian Church continues to experience growth in both numbers and spiritual depth.
I hope the Reds get a decent starting pitcher.
I hope God surprises me somehow this year – hopefully in a good way!
I hope my love for my job only grows stronger and richer.
I hope I am able to do a better job trusting God.
I hope for peace.
I hope a cure for multiple sclerosis is finally discovered, and I hope it involves eating Reese’s Cups.
I hope this season of “24” is as good as the last one.
I hope my family stays healthy and happy.
I hope “Lost” provides more answers than questions.
I hope to spend more time on golf courses this summer.
I hope for more Date Nights.
I hope to cross paths with friends I haven’t seen in too long.
I hope my relationship with God grows deeper and stronger each day.
I hope scientists discover some redeeming nutritional qualities about Krispy Kremes.
I hope God continues to be so patient with me.
So, what do you hope for in 2007?
