January Currently....and Happy New Year!'s that time again! I'm linking up with Farley from Oh' Boy Fourth Grade for January's Currently and you should too! Here it is!

I've been listening to way too many Lifetime and Hallmark movies over the last several days! I can't help it....I love them!

I am definitely loving that I have 6 more days of break! I have a long list of things to accomplish before next Monday though! I need to get busy!

I have been thinking and reflecting a lot lately about 2012 and what a blessed year it has been! I pray that 2013 is even better! Life is amazing right now and hopefully it will be even better is I can stick to my New Year's resolutions!

I am really, really wanting to open an ETSY store in 2013! I plan to sell both handmade and vintage items and can't wait to get it started!

I am needing a new fridge but want to pay off my new stove first! It's almost paid hopefully just a couple more months!

And last....but not least, my OLW is GRATITUDE! I have been trying very hard over the past year to have and show gratitude for EVERYTHING in my it good or bad. This is hard to do sometimes, but life is so much sweeter when you are grateful. We live in a world where gratitude is not shown as much as it should be. A few years ago, my sister gave me a book called Simple Abundance: A Daybook of Comfort and Joy. The book focuses on gratitude and is an excellent book! I plan to reread it this year. I just discovered that she has a website can check it out here.

I am leaving you with a quote from the book that I absolutely love. I have had this on my home bulletin board for is so true!

'Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.'
-Melody Beady

May your 2013 be blessed and beautiful!
