Something about the change from December to January fills my heart with emotions - such anticipation and excitement! In 2013, my goal is to spend more time enjoying the gifts that I have been blessed with while I have them. I am making some resolutions and writing them on paper and in my heart. I will do my best to reach them while at the same time realizing that if I fall a little short, it's okay. Come this time 2014, I want to look back and smile knowing that even though things didn't go as planned all the time, I didn't just "exist" in 2013 -- I lived and I loved. - By Krishann Briscoe
