I am not overly fond of animals. Ok, to be honest, I'm not an animal lover at all, it's not that I despise them, I find them cute, from afar... or in pictures. Especially in pictures. I've always had a healthy respect for them, some might call it fear, I prefer healthy respect. I leave them alone, they leave me alone and that's how I like it. Until tonight! I am so angry! I was driving along on my way home from a very hard days work, when out of the blue, out jumped a deer from a field, strking my car on the driver's side near the door. I was freaked out! Now, living in the country and passing a state park full of deer, I'm always on the lookout, but this happened in an area where I've never seen them before and it freaked me out! It's a good thing the children weren't with me, I would've needed a censor! I didn't realize how bad I was hit until I tried to exit my vehicle after arriving home and the door wouldn't open all the way. I didn't dare try to force it open for fear of damaging it further, so how did I exit? Well, I had to hike one leg up and over the gear shift, swing the other leg over and exit the passenger side. Not an easy task for a big girl, let me tell you! So, now I have to go through the whole insurance rigamarole and be without a vehicle for who knows how long. What fun! Why can't they just stay in the meadow like good old Bambi?

Tis the season when folks start making resolutions, those they'll keep for a week or two, and then by the end of the month, they're broken. I don't make resolutions. Never have. Now, I do understand the desire to start the new year fresh, to give up bad habits, to start living a healthy lifestyle, and heal relationships. Looking at the new year full of hope, promise, and possibilities is the impetus for some to make those resolutions. That being said, I'm going to begin this new year as I have every year.. with a positive attitude. Seeing each day as a gift, not sweating the small stuff, not worrying over things I cannot control, and enjoying every precious moment with my dear, sweet husband and children. I encourage all my blog friends to do the same.

Now for your listenting and viewing pleasure, here's some encouragement.
