REFLECTIONS PAST AND VISIONS FUTURE
Coming to the end of the year has put me in a reflective mood. 2006 has been filled with fun and laughter and tears and sadness. Even though things were difficult at times ,those very things became the building blocks that I believe made me a stronger person. Deaths of family and friends, loss of jobs and health issues had us turning to the Lord time and again.
Good times and the challenges of traveling and living in several 3rd world countries were high points for me. Making new friends and seeing things from a different perspective are experiences I wouldn't trade for anything.
I'm grateful for the chance to be with all of my grandchildren and have those precious hugs and kisses.
I look forward to this next year with expectation. It will be full of challenges and changes. We will be moving in the late Spring . Finances and missing our family has pushed us towards this decision. A new home, new friends, new church at our age won't be easy but its exciting too.
Life is good and I wish the very best for each one of you too.
Happy New Year Bloggers.
