What is a resolution? The act of resolving. The answer to a question; the act of answering; the act of determining. I think of resolutions as goals that I set for myself. I have made resolutions in the past to lose weight, become more fit, eat a better diet, be a better friend. For some reason I have come to the conclusion that I want to spend more time with my friends & family. Maybe that is partially due to losing a couple of friends to heart disease & cancer recently. Definitely as I get older I realize how precarious life is. We really don’t know when we will die. So I want to enjoy & celebrate the relationships that I have: be they friends or family. My resolution for 2015 is to have friends & family over for dinner very often. I love to cook & entertain & my husband got a smoker for Christmas. What a fun way to cook for friends. I encourage everyone to find ways to share time with others: visiting, volunteering, serving, singing. Whatever your style, bring joy & laughter to others & it will come back to you!
