3 in 30: finishing strong and looking ahead

My goals for the month of November have been to...

Go through boys' closet: declutter, separate into keep/donate/sell piles, make a list of clothing to purchase to get through the winter months.
Completed!  
Begin sorting through "hot spots": A move is in our future. I would like to get a good start on decluttering before crunch time.
Found some time to sort through the miscellaneous items being housed in our desk.  It's load has lessened.  May get to some other hot spot areas this afternoon...and will carry this goal over to December. 
Encourage intentionally: As I am encouraged by others, I hope to extend that same encouragement to others.
I have found that in encouraging others, I reminded myself of many times God strengthened me through encouragement in my life.  It's been a blessing to intentionally look for ways to encourage others...but, I know there are so many opportunities I missed, too.  It's a lifestyle change I hope to continue.

Looking ahead to December...

Keep Christmas simple and meaningful.
Help our family focus on His presence not the presents.

May your days be merry and bright!
