Ending the Year Stronger

Friday, December 21, 2012

I have to say that I've been worried a little about the start of next year. Usually I am super excited for the fresh start that a New Year brings. I have gotten that back but let me tell you why I was a little worried.

Back in October 2012, I took on the commitment to help run the Quarterly Challenge. Before that Angie was the only active leader on the team. So I volunteered to help. I took on the Quarterly Challenge. I knew it was going to be a lot of work but I didn't anticipate how much time it would really consume. In December I realized that I was struggling, and while looking forward to the next challenge wasn't sure I'd be able to do it.

In my personal life, my grandfather passed away last month and daugther started dating and I've been working, and I'm still working on my house and teaching a Sunday School Class. So I've been busy.

Angie and I knew it was time to recruit more help. I am so pleased to have the addition of four more leaders. That means (hopefully) that they will never feel as Angie and I did -OVERWHELMED! I was on a crash course landing for the end of the year. But these new leaders have given me some lift and maybe I won't be neglecting my Spark Friends as much because of these wonderful ladies!

I am ending the year stronger. I have met a commitment. I have asked for help, and now I know that next year is going to be a BLAST! Watch out 2013 -I'm coming in HOT!

    Personally, I know I'm thrilled to be able to help. The team has been wonderful for me, and being able to contribute more is great.

    I'm glad you're able to end the year on a good note! If there is every any need for me to help you pick up some more slack, by all means, let me know! :)
