Blessings and a Curse

Well, really we aren't cursed but we do have very bad luck. Our car was in the shop again due to an unexpected run in to a median. Everything is fine now and because of some unexpected Christmas money we aren't really going to be behind financially at all. Thanks to all who were involved in that, we really appreciate you:)

I have to admit the older I get the harder Christmas is for me, but I am learning to focus on the true meaning of Christmas and let the little things go. Presents are becoming less and less important and good quality family time is what I look forward to the most. I am very grateful to the Savior and for his birth and his sacrifice. I often feel like I know better and that I can handle everything but if I just "let go and let God" so to speak then I know things work out and that His timing is so much better than my own. I must learn to enjoy my journey with all its twists, turns, and bumps in the road.

I hope we can remember this season that our blessing are many and our burdens few as long as we have the right point of view. Let us all count our many blessings.

I can't write anything spiritual without thinking of the LDS mission I served in West Virginia so in that spirit let me say let's "keep on keepin' on"

Hello Stranger;)

I know, I know, it has been way too long since I've posted but honestly as far as my personal life goes not much has happened. I had an amazing Thanksgiving and my Christmas Season is going well but I just haven't done that much for Just Me.

I thought I would entertain you with a few of my ideas for the future. I am still going to make a twin quilt though it didn't happen this year and I'm already thinking on my new year resolutions but I am one of those selfish people that REALLY look forward to their Birthday and mine is coming up in a little over a month. I want to do something fun but nothing too much since my funds are a bit low so I came across this idea and I think I can make it happen.

A Hot CHOCOLATE Bar! For those that know me best you know three things about me that haven't and won't change, I LOVE pigs, my favorite color is purple, and I LOVE Hot Chocolate! So this seems to fit my personality. We will see how it comes together but I'm excited for it. I'll keep you posted:)
