A New Year ahead ~~

Wow! Another year is about to unfold. What will it hold for me, my family and friends? I have noooo idea, but it certainly will  be fun to watch!  Will there be changes for us all?  I sure hope so. Big ones, little ones, it doesn't matter. As long as it's a step forward. One day at a time.....and when there is an obstacle in our way, let us not allow it to hold us back. Keep pushing ahead!!

I'm welcoming 2014 with open arms, and I hope you do the same :)  Live every day (to the fullest), Love every day...(even when it's hard), and Learn every day...(your mind will thank you) ~~~

Wishing you All a Very Happy and Healthy New Year!

As the time draws near~~~ Merry Christmas

This was a favorite book of mine when I was a child that my Mom would read to us. Oh how I treasure those memories.

As the time gets closer to Christmas this year, I'd like to just say Merry Christmas to you All, and my hope for each of you is that God will Bless you and comfort you and direct you in the path that He has for you, and in ways that you would never imagine!  May it be in leaps and bounds during the next year! I hope you are surrounded with Love from family, friends, pets, and even  strangers that you can give a lending hand to.

Time is flying by, faster and faster as I get older. I approach each day with eyes to see something new, something that I've missed or taken for granted. My kids are getting older, going in directions that I'm so proud of. And I'm sure that direction will change again and again as they continue to grow. All I can do is pray that I will be around to see many of those changes.

I've been keeping busy with stitching still, and hope to get back to hooking in the near future. I'm actually picking up cross stitch patterns that I "had" to have from a while back. It feels good to have completed some of them and added them to my decorations this year.

To each of you... Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
