New Year

A new year brings so many possibilities! A new beginning for so many goals, whatever our goals may be. And so many possibilities for new experiences.

I am so excited about the New Year! Like celebrating Ron's 60th birthday. We will be taking a family trip to celebrate!

I plan to have a portrait taken of us. This age is it, we will record this age for the future. Like the driver's license photo, I always think it's such a bad picture, until I have to get a new photo 4 years later! Uhgg. So I think it is time to record this age before we get any older.

I am excited about new gardening opportunities. I love gardening so much that I included the garden picture! And it is not even mine, I borrowed the picture from Ann's picture file. Thanks Sister! I really enjoy my gardening and bird watching. What can I say, it was the first day of the year and rather than put up my Christmas decorations, I worked on my bird feeders.

I am exited about the opportunities to share the love of Jesus with children. I was showing Jackson the kids Nativitiy scene and he started asking questions about what I was telling him. That reminded me of how important my responbilities as a Christian, a teacher at church and as a grandmother are. What a blessing to be able to share the love of Jesus!

In my mind, you will forever be my cute little sister, no matter how we look on our driver's license! BTW, can we go on Ronnie's birthday trip too?

Donna said...

Yes! We have a villa, come on down.

Wow! Thanks for all the updates, Donna! I do the same thing about staging picture, because in a few years you won't remember doing it. So then you just think look how precious they were! Happy New Year!


How sweet that you would post my garden picture. I put bird seeds out this week and the birds went crazy. Angie is having Bible Study every night with Austin & Lexi - so proud of her. We are saving for Dan's 60th Birthday.
