Over the years, some things change. Take a pound of hamburger, for instance.
When our family was young and our resources limited, I would take a pound of hamburger and divide it into fourths. There you go, now I had enough meat for four meals - spagetti, shepherd's pie, Texas hash, and stroganoff!
However, things change.
Now that we are empty nesters, I take a pound of hamburger, divide it in half, add half a pound of ground turkey, and cross my fingers that we are eating more healthily!
Being aware of the various entrances and exits in our lives as well as our changing perspectives, circumstances, and desires, let us enter the New Year 2014 with goals and resolutions well attuned to personal growth and affinity to being of service to those around us.
As our eyes are fixed on the finish line, let us from the "get go" remember that we, no doubt, may miss the mark a fair number of times, but that each little inch of progress is of great significance.
A new day, a new year, and a new beginning shine opportunities before us giving us a sense of hope, energy, resolution, and renewal.
Let the race begin!
