Holidays are Over!

Holidays are over and here it is 2015!

My new years resolution... haha. If anyone ever does these things anymore...
I plan to kiss Doug on his lips every day! He is happy about this resolution and I think I might be able to do this. hehe.  We will see.

Thanksgiving, my family and I made reservations at Cattle Co. for dinner. I was not that impressed. The turkey fixings were not outstanding but there was turkey. Nothing beats home cooked for sure!  But the absence of piles of dishes and aching feet was totally enjoyed with the loving hugs and fun of family around.

Christmas we all got together on Christmas Eve and enjoyed each other. We ate chili soup, played games then opened gifts. It was such a nice time together and the very happy point of the celebration was that our oldest granddaughter was with us.

Divorce is an ugly wound in families and her absence was a result of all the wrongs and hurts that come out of a very caustic separation and divorce. This Christmas I had hope that my dear grandchildren will be climbing out of all this mess to try and proceed on with their own lives, their own ideas of what they want and don't want in their every day's.

I want to get back into blogging.  The constant mind control of an aging Mom and her needs are not here anymore for filling my thoughts away from blogging. So I find myself thinking about what I would like to share.

God has been faithful.

The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases;
his mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
“The LORD is my portion,” says my soul,
“therefore I will hope in him.” Lamentations 3:22-24 (ESV)
