December was ordered to be the ‘month of good news’ and thankfully it lived up to it’s orders.
I am not saying that we heard only good news in December or that only good things happened to us.. because that would be totally unrealistic and a little bit too freaky for me. But there were some specific snippets of good news that I was hoping to hear both on a personal level and from friends and family…. and amazingly I got all my good news and then some even better and unexpected good news.
Every time I think of the good news I’ve heard in the past month I smile. The unexpected good news has me grinning from ear to ear, even though I am not at liberty to share it with anyone yet! It has provided the best ending to a really up and down year, better than I even dared to hope for. So if the teller of the good news is reading this I hope they really know how incredibly happy and excited I am!
But the Month of Good News is over now and it is New Year’s Day.
Of course I am hoping to turn the Month of Good News into the Year of Good News – especially hopeful that my December news all grows happily and gets better and better. But apart from that 2007 is looming a little before me. I am feeling the need to manifest something for the year.. or at least focus on something… but I am not sure what.
The addition to our family is naturally probably my biggest focus. Growing a healthy, full term baby that I can walk out of hospital with is the goal. Though at times it seems almost too scary to hope for and it feels too specific and too exclusive of everyone else in our family. But on a personal level, having this baby with grace and strength and love is something I know I need to manifest for myself.
I also wouldn’t mind making some goals to do more baking and cooking, more gardening and more homely boring Mamma type stuff…. though I tend to have lofty ideals about that kind of stuff and terrible laziness when it comes to achieving them. So time will tell and I won’t hold it against me if I don’t manage it!
For the rest of us? For our family as a whole? Maybe 2007 needs to be a year of growth?
Growing our family. Growing our very cool property (still don’t believe we live here!). Growing with friends and extended family. And sorting out how it can all fit together and work together.
Maybe I will blog more about that stuff later but this post seems to be airy fairy enough already so I will stop now!
