The Broken Way: A Daring Path into the Abundant LifeThe Broken Way: A Daring Path into the Abundant Life by Ann Voskamp
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Lately, I’ve been reading “The Broken Way” by Ann Voskamp and she poses a couple of tough questions! “What if the abundant life isn’t about having better stories to share but about living a story that lets others live better? What if the goal isn’t to experience more of the world but for more of the world to experience more?”

Aging and More - New Year's Resolutions and trying a new 101 in 1001 Days Goal List

New Year’s Resolutions

New Year’s Resolutions? But, it’s mid-May, you say?  Yes!  We’re 5/12’s of the way through 2017.  So, tell me.  Honestly! How are you doing with your New Year’s Resolutions?

It seems that every year we make our list of New Year’s Resolutions and by January 3rd, we’ve thrown in the towel. Life starts to creep back into our plans and best intentions get put to the side.  All the things that want to accomplish with another new year.  All the best made plans.  All the health choices, career choices, relationship choices – lost in the busyness.

I don’t know if that’s your story… but it is certainly ours!

Grace + Frank share their 101 in 1001 weeks travel wish list

Say what?  Travel where?

Yep, that’s what I said!  Travel to 101 places in 1001 weeks!  I know!  A lot, eh?    The way we see it is like this:  1001 weeks is 19.25 years.  And while no one is guaranteed tomorrow, we also know that if we don’t keep the finish line in mind, we may not get through even a quarter of our list.

I think we’ll be surprised at how fast 75 comes.  One day we’ll be sitting in front of a birthday cake with 86 candles, shaking our heads wondering where on earth the years have gone.  [Ironic side note: as I write this, I can overhear Frank’s conversation with his dad… they are talking about a 5 year warranty on the new reclining chair that he recently purchased and Frank made the astonishing statement that in 5 years his dad will be 91!  His dad, of course laughed and said he can’t believe he is 86 already!]
