Just some ramblings...

So, I have decided to get "into" this blog thing and now I am really starting to enjoy it. The problem? The dishes are stacked up in the kitchen, the laundry basket is full, etc, etc. Oh well... So, it's a new year and I have been thinking about all I have and how often I forget or don't think about all of my blessings. I have decided to try to list somethings that I am grateful for as often as I have time to sit down and think about them and write about them. Or at least as often as I am willing to put aside all of the household chores to sit down at the computer. That may be easier than I am willing to admit. We just found out that our neighbor (the mother of our son's very best friend) is moving to take a job out of state. Far away....When I told my son he cried and cried saying, "But mom, he was my 1st best friend! Why does he have to move?" So my thoughts today and most of this week have been about how grateful I am for the friendships that the Lord has brought into my life. He always seems to know just what we need and when we need it. It has been a blessing to live where we do and to make such close friends at a time in my life when I so desperately needed them. So if you are a friend of mine (and you know who you are!) know that I am so grateful for you and love you so much.

...well, you'd better be talking about me, and I love you too. If by chance you're not talking about me, then I take that back.
