I was thinking about the New Year. Instead of doing resolutions, I decided to do monthly goals. You know, the usual tangible things I think I can accomplish in a month. While writing the post, my cell phone goes off. My dad who has been sick with cancer for almost a year has been scheduled to have radiation for 5 weeks beginning January. Neither my sister nor myself live in my father’s city. So the scheduling begins who will take which weeks and stay with him.
So now my January goal has been laid out before me. No decisions necessary. January will be a month of giving of myself, of personal strength, of unconditional love to someone who needs it more than ever.
