Happy New Year!! Lets Stop and Celebrate!

This is such a busy time of year. There are parties, get-togethers, award dinners…you name it. Its hustle and bustle time! One minute you are sitting down for a Thanksgiving dinner and the next thing you know its time for New Years Eve parties. All it takes is for you to blink and…BAM! An entire month has passed you by. Woven in between the appointments, showings, and other “work stuff” are the truely meaningful things that should be given the respect and attention they deserve. Im constantly asking myself the “mom questions.” Did you take time to video your kids this season opening presents? Did you take time to tell your folks how much you appreciate them now that you see for yourself how hard raising kids is during the “teen years?”  Well, I sure hope I did all of these things!! And I sure hope my family knows how much I appreciate each and every one of them!

I know for myself that life is just passing way to quickly! I mean how on earth did I get to be the mom to two teenage sons? Seems like just a minute or two ago my boys were in elementary school at Midland in Poway. Now they are both in High School and one is getting acceptance letters to start college next Fall. That’s just crazy! Can I possibly be the mom to an almost adult son? Yikes!

My wish for all of my family and friends this year is good health and peace in the New Year! But I would also add that my wish for all of us is the need to just slow down a bit. Slow down and really enjoy each moment of our lives. I don’t really believe in resolutions but if I did this would be the one I would make. I hope we all really enjoy time with one another and live in each moment. Life is just too darn short to hustle through the good stuff.  Its too precious to be preoccupied or oblivious to the important people all around us.

Here is to 2013! May it bring you great memories and lots of love!!
