Happy New year!!

Hard to believe another year has gone by.

It's been a pretty good year for me and my family.

I hope 2011 is a good year too.

No resolutions here, just some things I would like to accomplish.

I made it through the Christmas season without gaining weight, but that is something I need to work on this year.

I would also like to start running since I didn't accomplish that this year.

Reading more is always on the list.

Doing more for charity is high on my list too.

I hope you all have a wonderful 2011!!

God Bless you all. :)

Winter solstice

Today is the first day of winter. You couldn't tell that from here.

We already have about 28 inches of snow, and that's all before winter started!!

HERE is the other post I made about the winter solstice.

I bought a new pair of boots a week or so ago and have worn them. They are very warm!! So glad I bought them.

I hope you all have a great winter!!

Thankful Thursday

It's been a busy week for us here. This coming week actually won't be quite as hectic.

I am done buying Christmas gifts, I need to bake and finish cards and finish wrapping. My hubby will help me with some of that.

Today my little guy placed second in his class for a spelling bee! I am so proud of him.

Today I am thankful for:
* friends closing on their house soon!
* my little guy likes to read and spell
* a good vehicle in the snow
* my hard working husband

Colossians 3:17
And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the
Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.

Thankful Thursday

Another Thursday and it's almost the end of the year. I can hardly believe it.

My little guy is feeling better but not 100%. And now I am not well. I am hoping to feel better soon.

Today I am thankful for:

* the sunny days even though it's cold
* my husband and children
* friendly faces
* a smile
Philippians 2:3
Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in
lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.

Pearl Harbor

Today marks the 69th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor.

Here's a good article to read

Last week at the clinic I was at, I saw a car with PH survivor on the license plate. I have never seen that before!!
