What's In Store For Me In 2013

Wow, I can't believe that we have entered the year 2013.  I can remember when 2013 seemed like some futuristic time.  But, it's here and I am ready for whatever it has in store for me.  I do want to have some input on where 2013 takes me and I want to make some changes in my life that will bring me more happiness.  Some of the things I want to do this year are:  travel, spend more time with my children and grands, and focus on developing a healthier lifestyle.

I have been back in St. Louis for almost 2 years now and I am wondering if this is really where I want to be.  I have experienced living in other places and I enjoyed the experiences.  Don't get me wrong, I love being closer to my family in St. Louis, but I also had a taste of new places and new experiences and my appetite for traveling has been peaked.  I am older, single, my children are grown and I am not so attached to any materials things that I would not give them up if the opportunity to relocate presented itself.

During 2012, I was faced with some challenges; family, financial, emotional and health.  But I survived them all and I feel stronger and more determined that I can live the life I choose if I set my mind to it.  For a long time I was afraid to step out and experience new things, but that fear is gone.  Now I find myself bored with routine, so I need to MAKE A CHANGE IN MY LIFE!!!

My grands continue to provide me with "Granny Bragging Ops" and here are a few"

Jena our dancer in the Nutcracker
Ashni our medal winning fencer
Derek (right) our track star
Derek Sr. and his family
Bijou our scholar

Zion our superstar (this is an old photo, but it's just so cute)
Well these beautiful children are my inspiration to live my life to the fullest.  I want us to make memories together, I want us to explore all that life has to offer (even if we can't do it all together).

I will keep you posted on my 2013 experiences.
