Yeah, so I said I wouldn’t be posting about goals for the year, but I didn’t say I wouldn’t pause to reflect a bit. I finally have a few minutes to actually do that, so I’m going to answer some questions originally shared by my friend (and brilliant writer) Teresa Pitman. I will also add some cheerful flower photos to prove it’s still colorful, at least among the tiny flowers outside our former church building!
What made 2019 unforgettable for you?
The most unforgettable thing is that other than one sentence when we ran into each other in the summer, my older son didn’t speak to me in 2019. I’m still at a loss about what the reason is, but I’ll never forget 2019 for that very unexpected turn of events. I honestly thought we had a good relationship and could discuss any issues that came up. It’s a mother’s nightmare, but dwelling on it and going through possible scenarios won’t help. I’ll keep waiting and sending love.
What did you most enjoy doing in 2019?
There’s no one answer to this one! I crammed a lot of good stuff into the year. Here are some of my favorite things:
- Riding on Apache and exploring the ranch
- Playing with the dogs
- Walking in Austin and at the ranch
- Attending book club
- Learning from Master Naturalists
- Brainstorming in all my jobs
- Traveling to beautiful places
- Spending time with my family
