It seems all I ever get accomplished on my blog anymore is "catching up" posts. Needless to say, this is another one of "those".
Let's see, since Thanksgiving...there was Christmas! We had a great Christmas this year with the addition of 2 weeks worth of guests! It was great seeing dear old friends and getting to spend Christmas day with family that we love so much. My children poured out their love to me with lavish homemade gifts that I will treasure always!
I have never been one to make "New Year's Resolutions", don't you just hate that feeling at the end of the year when you realize you didn't accomplish all that you set out to do? Although, January is a good time for reflecting on your life and what you could change. We should always be in a state of reflection..."Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting." Psalms 139:23-24. I do have a list of books I'm going to try to read this year. Some I have read already, but I want to read them again....some things don't stay in my mind for very long...they seem to float off to who knows where!
We celebrated Clara Mae's birthday on the 4th...she is now 8 years old! She has always been our sweet little "talker". As they say, "She could talk the hind leg off a mule!" And just think...she was our BABY for the longest time :) And then came Liberty....
Happy Birthday, Clara Mae!
