** Happy New Year **
Since the Christmas decorations are still up at my house, I will be spending the first day of 2012 returning them to their storage boxes in the attic. It's interesting to me how those things that looked so beautiful a few weeks ago are now starting to seem more like clutter. So it will be nice to spend a leisurely day restoring order to my home.
How was your New Year's Eve?
For the first time in our entire marriage, we were at home ... just the two of us. We had talked of going to dinner and a movie with another couple, but one of them wasn't feeling well, so we had dinner out with one of our sons and then came home to watch a movie. We did watch the ball drop and clink glasses of sparkling cider at midnight.
As a new year begins, I'd like to wish you all a year of happiness and good health. I know that some of my blog friends and real life friends are facing difficult things right now and it makes me feel sad. Please know that I think of you and pray for better days ahead.
