Checking In

With stomach bugs going around the family, Baby E spending Christmas holidays with Melody, grands being out of school, Getting together with all 3 girls and their families, playing games and watching movies with the grands, making sure Rusty has a dry spot to go potty has been keeping me kinda busy. The days seem to go by so fast and I don't seem to get a lot done. I am looking forward to a new year. Feels right starting new adventures in a new year. Connie sent a book among all the goodies she gave me that I started today. Its called "Rise and Shine" and written by a woman for women. There is a small chapter and prayer to read each day and I am looking forward to starting each day of the new year in a positive way. I know there will be days of depression, days of anger and just out of sort days, but by starting them in a postivie way the strength will be there to get through what each day brings. Tonight I am sitting with grandson #1 and Baby E while Melody and Joseph go out and the other grands are at a lockin. After baby goes to sleep I have a magazine to catch up on and watch the ball drop on the TV. Looking forward to the adventures 2010 has planned and all the blessings coming with it. Our snow and ice has so far been rain as the temps didn't go down like expected. Tonight is suppose to bring snow as well as in the morning.... we shall see. I hope your 2010 adventures is filled with blessings!

Happy New Year Peggy,
I love the song that plays on your blog! One of the blogs I have been following challenges us to pick a word of the year. I have been prayfully thinking of the right word. I am leaning towards "joy"--it is one of the fruits of the spirit. I did an object lesson as a children's sermon this fall explaining the difference in happiness and joy. The Lord fills us with Joy when he comes into our life. Happiness occurs but isn't lasting as is joy. My prayer for your new year is that you hold onto the joy the Lord has given you.

Hello Peggy
Well thats a way to end the year - Busy Busy Busy lol I do hope theres more Joy for you in 2010 - I know they will come and visit you but do your best to kick all the other emotions out the door but let Joy and Happiness stay.
Take care

I had a little catching up to do. I was away for a week and not too far from you. Wish we could have made our way down for a visit, but time constraints prohibited it. Maybe next summer.

Happy New Year, my friend. I wish you great health and prosperity and the love and laughter of friends and family. It's going to be a great year.

I certainly hope the New Year brings you some wonderful times and the opportunity to spend time with old and new friends that admire how much you have to give to a relationship.

If you really want to see snow, maybe it is time to come North and visit with your "sister" in Sudbury. I would enjoy a visit to as I am sure Amelia would who just lives about 10 miles from me.
