My New Year's List: Top 10 Things I Am Grateful We’ve Done As A Family
Original post made by Erin Glanville, another community, on Dec 31, 2013
Holidays provide us with great rest stops. They're opportunities for us to pull over from the daily chaos and blur of life and just breathe. Enjoy the view for a moment. Talk about whether or not we are even going in the right direction.
There is something about New Year's day that signals an even more powerful urge to take stock of whether or not we need to course correct. My husband, Jeff, and I usually have these reflective conversations on a hike up Windy Hill or during date night at the Menlo Hub where he humors me while I make lists and goal sheets and he tries to sneak glances at the score on the bar's big screen.
Because of the season of life we are in (being parents of three relatively young kids), most of my lists involve my kids. This year, instead of my making a list of what I wanted to change, improve, or start anew, I made a list of what I am happy we are doing as parents--what is "working" for our family. I plan to give it to my children. Hopefully they will add to it and make it their own.
