I don’t have much enthralling to say at 5:30 pm on New Years Day, having been up since very early and on the move every minute.
We have JUST finished 3 Days worth of the LAST Holiday hoorays of the year, Praise His Holy name …but I just HAD to claim the day on my blog!!
I mean, there will never be ANOTHER–1-1-11 🙂
Of course, there will never be another 12-31-10 but that number just doesn’t have the same pizzaz as today’s do you think??
There is just something about fresh starts isn’t there?
I am honestly as excited about the coming year as I can remember being in a long time. It’s not because of anything bad, or even because of anything “particularly” good. I am just grateful. I am grateful for all that God has done, allowed, arranged and prepared. I am grateful for the days that have passed and the days that are ahead. I am grateful for His past 365 days of new mercy mornings and fully expect I will be needing equal time next year. That’s just me. I require heavy doses of mercy.
I am grateful for having my entire family together in my house last night, for the second time since Thanksgiving. I am gratfeul that I now have to go wash a tiny China T Set after having a T-Party in a tent I build outside for my G-babies today.
I am grateful for VERY HOT bubble baths and whatever Lifetime TV movie will send me off to sleep tonight.
I am grateful for life and for the hope of more to come.
I am grateful for the small group of friends who take the time to read the mindless ponderings that end up here on my blog :). Please say hi!!
I am grateful for the new friends that I met last year at retreats and STS training’s and girlfriend getaways.
I am grateful for the old friends who have walked with me through another year.
I am grateful for the new friends coming my way.
