Happy New Year!

New Years Eve... a time to sit back and reflect on the year. So many good things have happened this year and I like to focus on that. It's easy to get caught up in the day to day irritations and dramas, but, they are not what's important. We are so lucky to have all of our children, in-laws and grandchildren with us, healthy and happy. Anything else pales in comparison.
As far as New Year resolutions...I never stick with them, so what's the point in making them. I have, however, just decided to be a better person!  A better wife, Mother, sister , grandmother and friend. I'm looking forward to this year and hope you are too.
Happy New Years everyone!!

Merry Christmas

Another holiday is here. Christmas! I love it. I try very hard to get my shopping done early , so that I can truly enjoy the Holiday season . We are always very busy ... catching up with our families and friends.  This year we have a new grandbaby to celebrate.  We are truly very blessed.
This week a High school classmate of mine passed away. My heart aches for his wife, also a classmate and his family.  No time is good to lose a loved one, but, during the HOlidays hurts even more so.  I lost both of my parents during the HOliday season, so I know what it's like.  This death made me realize how truly lucky and blessed my family is.  I am holding my family a little closer and telling them how much I love them a little more often. 
I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and a very Healthy and Happy New Year. Blessings to all!
