It's the beginning of a new year and a great chance to start over - but how? Here are 10 ways to gain a fresh start in 2014.
The week between Christmas and New Year's Day has always been one of my favorite times of the year.
"Miracle on 34th Street," "White Christmas," and "It's a Wonderful Life" are among my favorite Christmas movies. All three stories revolve around people, connections and miracles.
A bi-partisan budget agreement was unveiled in a press conference this past Tuesday night by House Budget Chairman Congressman Paul Ryan (R – Wisc.) and Budget Committee Chairman Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash).
We were sitting in a sunroom, swapping stories, news and updates when the question was asked, "Why did they get divorced?"

This month, our nation has two pivotal anniversaries: the 150th anniversary of the Gettysburg Address by President Abraham Lincoln (Nov. 19), and the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy (Nov. 22). The first anniversary reflects the core message of remembrance, forgiveness, rebuilding and honor.

Autumn has always been a transitional season for me. As a child, I saw it as the time when the carefree days of summer changed to conform with the structure and requirements of school. The same held true through college and graduate school.

Last night, my husband Jimmy and I were talking about how fast time, at least as it pertains to our children, has flown. Our 14-year-old daughter, Maggie, is planning her first Halloween trick-or-treating adventure away from home and out with friends. She spent her first Halloween dressed as a pumpkin when she was less than a month old, too small to even hold her head up by herself. The next year, she was an angel, and we pulled her around in a little red wagon to gather treats.
When our oldest child was an infant, I talked to her nonstop. It was an ongoing monologue, a narrative of her life in progress. Topics included what we were doing, where we were going, what I was dressing her in, what the weather was like and what was happening next.
The news this week of two arrests in the case of a 12-year-old suicide is a reminder of how middle school drama can go awry.
The current budget impasse might have made you a bit blue. Ups and downs are normal in life, but when the potential of a debt default is the news, it's easy to forget the ups.
Yes, it is frustrating. The government should run smoothly and efficiently, going about its business and getting things done without much pomp and circumstance.
At times it can be discouraging, with all the news out of Washington focusing on the negative, partisanship and gridlock.
