Time for a Fresh Start!


Been lacking in keeping this blog updated. Just enjoying my time "off". I don't work outside the home, but that doesn't make me any less busy! It sure was a pretty stressfull holiday for me. I am going to work REALLY hard not to let that happen again. I have goals in mind for this coming year. Not resolutions. I'm back to hooking and am almost finished with the border on the pomegranate rug. I haven't had a chance to take a picture yet, but plan on doing that in the next day or so. Feels soooo good to hook again. How rewarding it is to find something you truly love to do.
Hard to believe it is New Year's Eve already. 2009, WOW! I'm praying for everyone to have a safe, healthy, happy, and very prosperous New Year! I guess it's true, that we/things/situations, only get better with "time". Time is a healer for sure.
We rented some movies to watch today, but I think we'll be watching them over the next couple days. We got 6 of them! No special plans at all, just relaxing. No special dinners either. I will make Taco's for dinner for Nicole and I and George will have a hoagie. (not a taco fan). Craig will be spending time with his girlfriend at her house. I'm hoping to get to some more hooking later too. Other than that, it "should" be a peaceful day. Will stay up with Nicole probably to watch the ball drop. I'm sure George will be sound asleep by then lol.
We have had so many blessings in 2008. I'm praying that 2009 will be even a better year! I'm truly thankful for every day that God gives me to spend it with my family and friends. My deepest desire is for others to come to know Christ this coming year, and to find the peace that so many are searching for. It's so simple....
I sure hope whatever your plans are for this evening, that you stay warm, and stay safe! Think twice before drinking and driving, please...

Happy New Year wishes to you and yours! And may 2009 be kinder to us all than 2008 was!

I'm laughing...you had hoagies? I grew up in NJ and haven't heard that term since then. They aren't called hoagies in Maine (and they don't taste as good either!). Just stopped by to wish you a very Happy New Year!
