The turning of a page from 2010 to the new 2011 is a time for reflection on the old year and a welcoming of the new. Are there things in our lives we would like to change, things we would like to do better, things we want to banish completely? Of course there are. I don't make New Year's Resolutions, as I feel that I'm setting myself up for failure. Most resolution's pass away in an average of two weeks. Instead, I've set myself some goals, but even those I plan on keeping close to the cuff. They are mine - or mine and Riff's - and I will show you the results of them as the year passes. Many have to do with projects around our home and the ability to FOCUS on one project at a time. This spills over into my craft room as well.
We know that 2011 will be brining some blessings to our lives:
1) A new granddaughter will be born in April to Brittany and Chris~ Mazzy Kaye, we can't wait to meet you!
2) Brittany and Chris' little family will be complete with a little boy, Noah, and a little girl, Mazzy, so they will be getting married in August. (Sometimes we do things a little backwards in our family, but that's okay! LOL)
3) Our oldest son, Sam, will be coming home in September from his third and hopefully final tour in Iraq. Please keep him and the safety of the troups he is with on your prayer list.
With six kids and four and a half-grandkids, we know that 2011 will bring more blessings to our world that we are yet unaware of. We so look forward to the dawning of this new year.
May you all have a blessed and prosperous 2011!
