Happy 2011!

Thank you to such a wonderful 2010.  The Parenting Passageway’s readership has grown in leaps and bounds, and 2011 promises to be an interesting and exciting year.

Here is my annual New Year’s wishes for my dear readers, reprised for 2011:

I hope this is the year you are “good enough”

I hope this is the year you have more joy than ever before!

I hope this is the year you investigate your faith and find a faithful community to join and pray with.

I hope this is the year you have the cleaner, more organized home that you have always wanted.

I hope this is the year you fall in love with your spouse or partner again and again.

I hope this is the year you will ENJOY your children and have FUN with them.

I hope this is the year you will learn some new skills and enjoy the process.

I hope this is the year you will start telling stories to your kids instead of reading them all.

I hope this is the year you are outside and active as a family in all seasons.

I hope this is the year you sing to your children and teach them singing games.

I hope this is the year you draw closer to your own family; your own parents and siblings.

I  hope this is the year you spend time with the friends you hold dearest.

I hope this is the year you take a vacation, no matter how short and close to home.

I hope this is the year you start a garden.

I hope this is the year you set the tone in your home and become the Queen that you are.

I hope this is the year you will be the most gentle parent you can be.

I hope this is the year you forgive yourself.

I hope this is the year you become healthier by exercising and eating healthy foods.

I hope this is the year for all your dreams to come  true.

Thank you all so much for reading my words and for all the gifts you bring here and  to your own families.  You all bring me so much joy each and every day!

In Joy, and Happy New Year!

Many blessings,

Carrie
