Goodbye 2014, Hello 2015!

I am grateful that this past year has been a relatively good one.  I have a few new goals for this coming year.  They're kind of general, but rather important.  I want, of course, to get a book written in 2015.  And I want it to be something that teaches something worthwhile about the human experience, and not be something that is just fluffy entertainment with no substance.  I want to be more productive, spend less time on the internet, and also to spend less time worrying about things over which I have no control.  I want to be more forgiving, but at the same time smarter about who I trust.  I want to continue to be supportive of my good friend Rachel Nunes, and keep her in my thoughts and prayers as she goes forward with this difficult plagiarism case that she's still dealing with.  I want to improve myself as a teacher, and most importantly, I want to improve myself as a mom.

I want to follow Shakespeare's advice when he wrote:  "Love all, trust few, do wrong to no one."
