"Begin at the beginning and go on till you come to the end; then stop." ~ Lewis Carrol, Alice in Wonderland.
O God, What shall I do?
I am at the total end
Wonderful, dear child! Now start your new beginning with me. ~ Ruth Harms Calkin
This fresh new year is different. It's the first full year that all my kids are college age or older. Becoming independent. Self-sufficient. Needing me less. Figuring out their path and leaving me to figure out mine. I've got time now in spades. I waste it. I haven't quite figured out how to harness it. I used some of that time to move my blog from a self-hosted Wordpress site to Blogspot. It just made sense as I look to simplify my life. And then I ask myself what do I want from my blog this year? The answer is something to look forward to. A creative outlet. To start conversations, inspire and be inspired. To learn what others have already figured out. I got a courtesy phone call the other day from The Most Pleasant Woman Who Works at GoDaddy. We were chatting away like old friends while she went about updating my account. When we got to the domain name of "I Love My Lemonade Life" she asked, "So...are you loving your lemonade life?" I honestly replied, "I'm trying...you know how that goes." Then we had a nice laugh. Isn't that what we're all trying to do? We're taking those lemons...adding some sugar...and making the best life out of it that we can.
