Resolutions

God, grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,

The good fortune to run into the ones that I do,

And the eyesight to tell the difference.

2012: I will get my weight down below 180 pounds.
2013: I will follow my new diet religiously until I get below 200 pounds.
2014: I will develop a realistic attitude about my weight.
2015: I will work out 3 days a week.
2016: I will try to drive past a gym at least once a week.

Dear Lord:

So far this year I've done well. I haven't gossiped, I haven't lost my temper, I haven't been greedy, grumpy, nasty, selfish, or overindulgent. I'm very thankful for that. But in a few minutes, Lord, I'm going to get out of bed, and from then on I'm probably going to need a lot more help. Amen

  6. I just woke up and decided that I will never have resolutions anymore. Maybe one. I will always treat people with love. Sounds good to me.

  18. I resolved not to make a resolution I won't keep. My pet rock, Seymour, resolved to not visit a rock crusher. I think we're both on a positive path to keeping our resolutions...

    1. I think you'll both do just fine. Seymour is a smart one. Not that you're not, but he's a rock after all. :)

  23. I like your resolutions, Sandee. The prayer is cut too. Neat post.
    Well, I don't make resolutions cause I'm perfect in most every way. "I've done well. I haven't gossiped, I haven't lost my temper, I haven't been greedy, grumpy, nasty, selfish, or overindulgent." Some might differ.
    Happy New Year !!! :-h

  25. You crack me up! You find the best stuff to post on your page. Good to be back! I have missed you. Going to go have some fun and draw something for my Children's books right now. It's supposedly going to look like a duck ... but it might end up looking like something else. Just sayin'.
