Happy New Year!

So much of this food journey is about starting over. And so it is with our lives. We glance backwards at years of broken resolutions ~ but then here comes "grace." Ann Lamott sums it beautifully.

“Grace is the force that infuses our lives and keeps letting us off the hook.

It is unearned love ~ the love that goes before, and greets us on the way.

It’s the help you receive when you have no bright ideas left, when you are empty and desperate and have discovered that your best thinking and most charming charm have failed you.

Grace is the light or breeze that takes you from that isolated place and puts you with others who are as startled and embarrassed and eventually grateful as you are to be there.

I do not at all understand the mystery of grace – only that it meets us where we are, but does not leave us where it found us.”  - Anne Lamott

Now greet this brand new year with faith, confidence, and once again ~ resolve!
