The New Year Is Approaching!

For last year’s words belong to last year’s language and next year’s words await another voice. And to make an end is to make a beginning.

~ T. S. Eliot ~

I read this somewhere this week, and thought it was so good for the upcoming New Year
I'm not making any new years resolutions.  I always think I'll start a new diet, excercise more, read my Bible more, paint more, and sew more.  I always get bogged down, and say I don't have time to get everything done.  This year I just want to be a better, kinder person and live one day at a time. If I get some of the things above done, that will be great.  If I don't that's okay too.    I want to be a listening ear for those who are hurting and help where I can.  We went through some medical and emotional issues this year, and others were so kind to listen to us and lift us up in prayer, and God does hear and answer. As this year ends it truly is to make a new beginning in 2011.  We all need a new beginning.

Those Who Make Us Great and Grand

I was so late getting my Christmas cards out this year.  I worked on this collage for a couple of days trying to get it right.  Then, because it was so late I hurried down to CVS.  I used their templates, and they printed them out while I stood there.  I was so pleased with them, and it was so easy.  I thought to year I'm going to start earlier.
These are our beautiful grandchildren, and our two great-grandchildren.

I haven't posted since Thanksgiving because I've been really sick, but I think I'm on the top side, and I'm mending.  Thanksgiving was great!  We had 12 adults at our table, plus 4 little ones under 2 years of age.  We were so excited to have our two great-granchildren present.  The only thing that went wrong was my turkey that was so fat inside the meat. It's the last time I will cook a 20 pounder.    Everyone contributed with their favorite recipes. It was a memory maker to have my oldest granddaughter Kaley in the kitchen all morning helping me make pies, and sweet potato casserole.    My sweet hubby washed the dishes that wouldn't go in the dishwasher.  Babies were watched and played with,  football games were being watched on  TV, and there were many couch umpires and coaches.  Desserts had to come later, because everyone was so full.  I'm so thankful for my family and others that the Lord sees fit to send our way.  I'm so thankful I have so many things to be thankful for.
