Happy New Year Midland!
This issue is full of great people in our community using their gifts for good in a variety of ways. We are each given different talents, but what good are they if we keep them to ourselves? Let your light shine by using those talents as you are called to do! What are your gifts? How can you put them to use today? A small act can make a big difference in someone’s life.
I love this time of year. Although each new day really is a fresh start, most of us are not as intentional with that clean slate as we are in the New Year. Instead of resolving to eat healthy and exercise (which I should add to my list too) I want to resolve to be present with my family – including my extended family.
Last year I copied and scanned every picture I could find from my 92-year-old Grandmother and asked her to label the names of the faces as I pasted them to blank pages…these faces from the past brought our family to where we are today.
It is a reminder that the decisions Matt and I make today have a ripple effect for our family tomorrow. In 2018, we will be praying and resolving to make positive ripples! Take a peak at a few of the images I scanned in 2017 of my sweet mother enjoying Christmas as a child here at home in West Texas.
On behalf of Midland Living and our advertisers (see a full list in the back of this publication) we thank you for shopping local, not only during this past Christmas season, but year round.
