    Don’t you love words that have two meanings?  One is concrete and solid and the other is an action attached.  A resolution.  A new year.  What is New Year’s Resolution as an archery parent that is concrete and forward moving?

    It is a new year.  Each month has archery.  Each day has archery.  How exciting to start a new book.  What is your first chapter about as an archery parent?  For this archery parent, the first chapter is the archery industry.  ATA show coming soon!

    More important, what do the days of this new chapter bring?  January 1st will most likely bring the undecorating of last year that often brings reflection.  Reflections often equate to resolutions.  Reflections are bringing serious thought or consideration.  Reflections are not about regret.  This word is empowering, it is a word that allows wisdom and growth and faith to move through it.

New hope, aspiration, and resolutions.  This world is paved with good intention.  No, there will be many days that this parent falls short.  There will be mistakes.  When a word, like resolution, allows the definition to be an action, there is some control.  There is a promise of new seasons, new mistakes, new successes, new friends, new joys, new sights.  As an archery parent, as the New Year smacks me right across the check, in reflection, this year will be a journey, an adventure and full of life experience.  May your year bless you and yours.  Happy New Years!
