Feb. what a month!

Well, it is Feb. my birthday, Beth's birthday, Bobby's birthday, Our anniversary, my parents anniversary. Busy month not to mention Valentines Day!

On a more sobering note, our little Hope has not been feeling well. She has a infant cold virus and is feeling really yucky. So when you pray, remember our little pumpkin! She is such a good baby, and isn't really fussy at all. But the past few days she has been a little.

Flu Shots!

Well I went yestday around 1:30 and got my H1N1 and seasonal flu shots. Everything went well until about 7:00 pm. When I became very sick at my stomach, a severe head ache, musles and bones hurting so bad I thought they were breaking, chills so bad that I was shaking the chair I was in. Danielle checked the side effects ( we never look unless there is something going on, because we dont want to have them if they are not really there.) And sure enough every one of them were on there. The good thing is it should only last 1 to 2 days. Much less then the flu! Also found out that there will only be 1 shot to take care of everything by October's flu season. That is if another strain does not mutate in! Well I will try it again in October because I do not want the flu. I have Grandbabies to play with!

How was Christmas?

How was our Christmas? Very good! Christmas Eve all the kids came over. We had Breakfast and opened gifts. Had a good time, laughted and talked. It was really nice and I enjoyed it so much. Then we went to Daniels parents and it went really well there. Everyone was enjoying themselves and no fussing! It was a real blessing to have everyone in a good mood and no one fussing. We stayed a little longer and spent time with Bobby and Monie ( Daniel's brother and sister-in-law). Daniel sang and played guitar with his dad.

Christmas Day we went to my mom and dads. It was great everyone was there! Picked at Beth a little, she says she has become a grouch. Nope just getting older and she is fine no different than any one else. We all get that way at one time or another. She can be a lot of fun! The truth be known we could all relax more! Jimmy and Frankie was there ( my brother and sister-in-law) and their family. It was so good to see them all. We hardly ever get together any more. I really enjoyed it! Jess still on crutches, but she hopped around good. No stopping her. I was looking at Danielle and thinking how next year there will be another little one there with us ( Charity Hope). It is so awesome to watch the kids play and open gifts. The excitement on their little faces! As you sit and think about all the additions we have each year, you realise just how blessed you are. The family is growing with the next generation. And although there is changes, the importance of spending time with family grows . So how was my Christmas? Truly Blessed! God Bless You! And wishing you the Best New Year!

A few new thoughts

Well, lets see! Went with Danielle to her doctors visit, every thing is as it should be. ( Thank you Lord!) My other 2 girls Beth and Jess were there and that was nice. We never go out just us girls so I will take what I can get when I can get it. I miss them so much. Danielle is so excited and can't wait to hold her baby girl! We talk about when she was born a lot here latley. She tells me of the fond memories she has of her childhood.

My Jess broke her foot and is hopping on crutches. Bless her heart! But she will just keep on going. This girl has a huge heart, even with a broke foot she wants to keeping helping others.

Beth ( Mary) stays busy with her new home the beautiful girls (my grandbabies) and her hubby. She enjoys her family and doing things with and for them. I pray all her hopes and dreams come true for her.

Christmas Eve morning all the kids come over for Christmas breakfast. I really enjoy that! I am looking forward to it, just 2 more days! Wow! another year about over. Where does the time go? Oh well,I just want to enjoy my family as much as I can. Sometimes you are limited for whatever reason so, enjoy what time you have. Let the love of Christ dwell in your heart and life. That is what Christmas is all about. As you sit around with family and you look at them, remember this is the family he chose for you. Your parents, your spouse, your children. Be blessed, and enjoy his blessings. Merry Christmas!

Christmas Time!

Well, it is that time of year again! My favorite might add. If you are like most of us with the economy the way it is, there won't be a lot under the tree. But there is so much in our hearts! sometimes I forget what Christmas is all about, don't get me wrong I love the shopping for others. The thing is We (I) have to stop and take the time to remember why I celebrate it at all. If we think about all the gifts he has given us ( It really is not possessions) if we could only give others just a drop of that, wow how blessed we all would be. Although we can not give some one else salvation, we can let them know how they can get it. He gives us love, hope, peace and joy, this we can give to others. Love one another like he loves us, let them know there is hope in Jesus Christ, When you let him into your life and ask forgiveness, when you do this you can find peace in knowing that there is a way when it seems like there is no way, The joy of knowing how much he loves you and will never leave you.

Sometimes it just breaks my heart if I can buy or give the way I would love to. But you know, to be honest there are times when just loving someone, being there, leaning a ear ( not opinion of what we think) is the best gift you can give. What do you give a person who has everything? humm that could be hard. What do you give someone who has nothing could be just as hard. So what do you do? The best you can as long as it comes from the heart. You remember the song the little drummer boy? In some ways I feel that is me. I have nothing much to give but, what I give it comes with all my heat. So, whatever you give no matter how big or little it seems to be, give it with all you heart, with the love Christ.

I have so much to be thankful for so, where to begin? The beginning may not be as had as knowing where to end. Because every moment there is another thing to be thankful for.I would say the begin is when I ask the Lord into my heart and life. Did doing that mean that I wouldn't have to face tough times? Not at all but, Now I have someone to help me through whatever I face. I want my family to know I feel truly blessed and I am very thankful for them. See no matter what anyone else may think about me I am so thankful the Lord knows my heart. He knows the love I have for my family, he knows how much I miss them when I don't see them, he knows the prayers I send up for them. He knows every part of me, and for this I am truly thankful.

We are going to Beth's for Thanksgiving, to me this is a blessing. Let me explain, This mean she has grown into a wonderful woman, has beautiful home, has a wonder family and we can all gather, fellowship and enjoy this with her. This is a true blessing and I know she realizes how much she is blessed. We have decided to go to different homes(of the family) for Thanksgiving every year. This is a wonderful thing because, we can share the blessings we have with each other. And I think this is very important to build these memories that will last. See one day some of the family will not be here to share the day with us. It could be me or any of the family members. You may say why bring this up. Because we need to realize the important of building memories with each member. Be thankful for them enjoy the time you have with them. Everyone will not always agree with each other, but we are all family that God has blessed each one of us with.

Wishing everyone a Blessed Thanksgiving!
