I haven’t logged in in so long. I can’t remember much of last month, much less two years ago. I have no idea if I accomplished this one, but I have a feeling I got very close. (I had both parents in two hospitals at overlapping times and had lots of time to read.) I’ll “give up” on this one since I am unsure.
I know I did not read 12 books in 2007, nor in 2008—and I am fairly confident it won’t happen with what is left. I think I’ll put up the goal of 12 in 2009 and try again!
I honestly do not know when I finished this one because I do not think I have logged on in two years! But it was completed in the interim.
Like so many others doing this, I ended up having to complete too many unfinished DIY projects in order to put the house on the market. THAT was a task. That is completed and the house has been on the market for over 6 months….
I started off well for a week or so—even reading (appropriately so) during Christmas weekend when we did a lot of driving. I didn’t actually read while driving; I read at the two houses we visited over three days. But I didn’t continue quite long enough to be automatic and I have been sporadic since.
During that week or two of daily reading I honestly noticed a different in my attitude, outlook and language. Or more accurately: now that I’m again not reading daily I realize that my attitude, outlook and language (among other things) were better during that brief stretch. Amazing how much more like God we become the closer we draw near to Him—even when we barely step toward Him from so far away.
For His sake (He is worthy of nothing less than all of me) and mine, I need to do this.
