Goals and Ghostly Stories

I’ve given up on making New Year’s Resolutions.

Why? It’s simple. Most of the resolutions I was so intent on keeping, at the time I so energetically wrote on my To-Do-List, fell by the wayside. Was I the only one who posted my resolutions with that surge of accomplishment we feel when approaching a new year, a new me, then one by one forgot? No. I don’t think so. Possibly, many of you out there have experienced the same dilemma. Admit it. You know it’s true!

Sad, but true…there is hope though. We can only do so much. When life takes over, and it always does, get back on track. Don’t give up because something didn’t get done when you wanted it to. Jump back on the horse, so to speak.

What I do now is update my goals list, and do my best to stick to the important material.


This morning I ran across a page on Debbie Macomber’s blog. On the page is a link to Debbie Macomber’s Goal Worksheet. https://debbiemacomber.com/updates/2016-goals-worksheet

If that worksheet doesn’t work for you, then create a personal worksheet.

My book for the upcoming “Christmas at the Inn on Main Street” boxed set is Christmas at the Granger Inn. I have never written anything with a ghost, but one of the other authors mentioned she has a ghost in her story. So, intrigued that I was, and after a lot of thought and a lot of what if’s,” my ghost emerged. Writing this story has been so much fun!

The authors have all new books in the boxed set, but not all of the wonderful stories have a ghost. I hope those of you who do like them, enjoy my new ghost story!

  1. My life would completely fall apart if I didn’t keep a daily to-do list! Most of it is boring stuff like paying bills, baking muffins for school lunches, making my sure my kids return their library books, etc. Larger goals have to be broken down into daily tasks!

  2. A friend doesn’t make fancy lists for the year. Her family keeps a urn on the mantel. At Christmas when everyone returns home, they dump last years wishes and look at them. She says some are laughable, but so many have come to pass in the year. Then they all make new ones. One wish per piece of paper. But they can put as many pieces of paper in as they want. It was something that her hubby’s family did and she has continued the tradition. Now with family scattered all over, it’s become even more fun. One year a son could not return home so he sent his wishes in an envelope. No one is to peek at the new wishes. One year a newlywed daughter added the wish I want to make a dad a grandpa. The following Christmas, a brother’s wife gave birth in Oct and there was a set of twins born before Xmas. That daughter wasn’t due for another few months. My friend said to be very careful with wishes. 🙂
