Bring in the New Year, MOA EOT article
Hello once again,
The Christmas Season flew by once again! I hope you all had a wonderful time with your family and loved ones over the course of the weekend. I know I sure did. Patrick Murphy and I had a marvelous time at the Mall of America as we shared Christmas music for last minute shoppers. The view in the Best Buy Rotunda was outstanding. Seeing shoppers gather on all levels of the mall to hear our music gave us quite a thrill. It was definitely a once in a lifetime opportunity. I’m a bit sadden as I now have to wait another year for Christmas. However, I am excited for the new year.!
As I think back and reflect on 2011 a lot has happened. I’ve graduated from high school, was crowned Miss Perham, and moved to college to begin studying Music Education. I’m always a bit sad when a year closes. For me it’s a reminder that life is going faster than I can control. However, it’s always exciting to see what the new year brings. I could go on and on about new year resolutions, and goals, however, I want to focus on the little aspects in our lives that will make 2012 great. Appreciate the daily activities that always seem to keep us busy. Be thankful for the hustle and bustle in the mornings, the extra time homework takes, the time you spend waiting for your children to finish with practice and lessons, and the simple “I love you’s.” I hope you can make 2012 your best yet!
Safe travels and celebrations as you continue to bring in the new year. May you reflect on 2011 and be thankful for all you have encountered. I wish you the best as you bring in 2012. Blessings to you and your family!
