Oh goodness. Christmas came and went like a flash, as usual. I absolutely savored the moments…(I'll post some pics later)
Christmas morning — hearing the excitement in their voices and thumping of the girls' feet down the stairs and their gasps of delight at the sight of the Christmas tree…seeing what Santa left for Cash and running down the hall to bring him in on the fun. It was perfect. :)
Santa was good to us though our greatest gifts are the wonderful blessings from our Lord. God has blessed us with the things that cannot be purchased or made at the North Pole ;). Thankfully, our needs have been met for the time being. For that I am continually thankful and try hard to instill this thinking into my kids as well. As I know so many families are struggling…in this uncertain economy, with health issues, missing loved ones and so many other trials. My prayers are with those folks.
I am facing the New Year with optimism that there are many good things to come. With faith that God will see me through any rough times or uncertainty. I guess my New Year's resolution is to ENJOY THE RIDE. Life is like a runaway train, isn't it! So my plan is just to hold on tight and take lots of pictures!
Gotta go for now. These next two weeks are busy busy…we've got two birthdays around the corner (Sara and Cash), parties to plan, New Year's festivities, pending deadlines and an upcoming Got Crafts? class on the horizon! So I'm getting to work now…
Blessing to you and yours…jw
