Faux Pearls: Gift

Can you believe tomorrow is December 1st? This year has swiftly gone by. I'm excited that my birthday is in two months. I can't wait to celebrate me and the gift of life I've been given. I do it with the same two gals since forever. We are tossing around ideas this year but haven't really decided on anything specific. Any suggestions for a girls's weekend?
As the clock winds down on 2012, I'm starting to reflect on the good and the bad. I'm considering how I can improve myself, the blog, return to graduate school, find a job that will allow me to help youth soar and become their very best but most importantly grow closer to God.
On the other hand, I'm sad to be leaving the year that has held so many life altering events from losing my Granny to coming to the realization that as a teacher I'm not making much of a difference in this educational war. I can tell you both were huge blows to my spirit, heart and mind!
What I do know is the clock of life won't stop ticking! This means I need to get in gear, jump in feet first, grab life by the horns and ride off into the sunset with a heart of gratefulness. I need to be merry for the many joys knowing Christ has given me. I need to grow as a parent because soon I'll have a high schooler living under my roof... YIKES!!
There are somethings I need to do differently going into 2013. Like creating a list of what I want in a mate. I need to develop a 5 and 10 year plan that includes everything from where I'll be living to financial goals. I keep saying I'm going to start writing in my prayer journal and I haven't. I pray. I just don't take the time to sit quietly and listen and write. I would like to take a class to become fluent in Spanish, learn to write grants and go on a date or two....maybe more. My son is getting older and I don't want to find myself dropping him off at college, to return home and find out I don't know how to be anything other than a mom. Boo to that idea :(
Yeah this clock is ticking and I have plans. What are some things on your agenda to close out 2012? Will you beat the clock?
