OUT WITH THE OLD AND IN WITH THE NEW

HI THERE!

IT IS SO HARD TO BELIEVE THAT WE ARE ENDING ANOTHER YEAR AND BRINGING IN ANOTHER YEAR! WHAT ARE YOUR PLANS AND WHAT WAS THE THINGS YOU ENJOYED OR DIDN'T ENJOY IN YOUR LAST YEAR? DID YOU HAVE MANY CHALLENGES? MANY THINGS TO BE THANKFUL FOR?

I AM SO THANKFUL FOR MY FAMILY AND FOR ALL THAT THEY MEAN TO ME. I AM SO THANKFUL FOR A GOD WHO IS ALL FORGIVING AND PROVIDES MY EVERY NEED.

THIS LAST YEAR I STARTED A NEW JOB AND TURNED OUT TO REALLY ENJOY IT. THE CLIENTS THAT I TAKE CARE OF (MOST OF THEM) ARE SO CUTE AND SHOW ME HOW MUCH THEY REALLY ENJOY HAVING ME THERE FOR THEM.

THIS PAST YEAR MY DAUGHTER STARTED HER LAST YEAR OF HIGH SCHOOL. SHE WILL GRADUATE IN MAY OF 2009. THIS WILL BE A BIG YEAR FOR US. SHE IS GETTING OLDER AND HAVING TO DECIDE ON WHICH COLLEGE SHE WANTS TO GO TO, WHAT CAREER SHE WANTS TO HAVE, AND BECOMING INDEPENDENT. GOD IS GOOD!

I HOPE EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU HAVE HAD A BLESSED CHRISTMAS AND YOU WILL RING IN THE NEW YEAR WITH MANY BLESSINGS ALSO.

TRY TO GRASP EVERY MOMENT POSSIBLE! ENJOY LIFE AND TRY NOT TO LET THE LITTLE THINGS BOTHER YOU.

TAKE CARE!
