Wishing you the best year ever

Another year gone by and I can honestly say I am looking forward to 2009.

2008 is the year that many of us will remember for a long time. It certainly was jam packed with ups and downs. I am thankful to see it "out".

I pray that 2009 will be a positive year for all of us, filled with good health and many blessings.

Over the past 9 months, I have met so many wonderful people through blogging. All of you have left your hand print on my heart and for that I am a much richer person.

From my family to your family, Happy New Year!
May God bless us all.

Finding the ho ho ho

That is not a picture of me but I am looking for the ho ho ho.

It has been a busy week but not with Christmas preparations.
Many of you are aware of the fact that my youngest son is ill. This has been a difficult week health wise for him. We are not sure if he will be in or out of the hospital for Christmas.
I really feel that the spirit of Christmas lives in the heart so it can be celebrated anywhere.

I am so thankful for another year with him. I have wonderful memories of past Christmases with my boys. They have been two of the best gifts I have ever received (hubby too).
This has always been one of my favorite times of the year and this year is no different.
Time with family is one of the best gifts we can ever receive.
Treasure it, it goes by way too fast.

I came across this old photo from 1958 earlier today.

Yep, that's me with Santa.

I was 4 years old.

I think we both look a little skeptical.

Joyeux Anniversaire to my DH!

Happy birthday to you,
Happy birthday to you,

Happy birthday dear hubbyyyyyy,
Happy birthday to you!

Today is my hubby's birthday (I know you figured that out-hehe).

I am so glad that Jeff introduced us (hooked us up as he says). Without getting all mushy, I am a better person for having you in my life. I love you very much!

If you are reading this at work, beware when you walk through the door.

From a friend...

An old friend sent this to me and I wanted to share it with you.
The author is unknown.

Many people will walk in and out of your life, but only true friends will leave footprints on your heart.
To handle yourself, use your head; to handle others, use your heart.
Anger is only one letter short of danger. If someone betrays you once, it is his fault; if he betrays you twice, it is your fault.

Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.

He who loses money, loses much; he who loses a friend, loses much more; he who loses faith,
loses all.

Beautiful young people are accidents of nature, but beautiful old people are works of art.

Learn from the mistakes of others. You can't live long enough to make them all yourself...

There is no beginning or end. Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery.
Today is a gift, that's why they call it the present.

I thought I might make a plaque from this. What wisdom in those words.
