Happy New Year Everyone! 2010 has begun. We have spent the last few days of 2009 with friends and family. We had Karen and James, very long time friends, spend Christmas with us. Anna was so gracious to host Christmas dinner for us in her beautiful new kitchen. New Year's Eve was spent visitng with friends and seeing in the new year with fireworks. We came home to another party Angie was hosting for the young people. I spent another very late night up with them. It was a super way to start the New Year. Il ove the young people and I love thier energy and life! They are so much fun to have around and are welcome at my house anytime!
We will become grandparents in just a few days. I am so excited to meet my little grandbaby and pray for him/her often.
I love you, my family and friends, very much and pray God's very best for all of you this year. I pray that some of your deepest dreams and desires are fulfilled this year!
I thank God for all His blessings in 2009. He has kept us all safe and given us another year of life. I thank God that Ken's surgery went well and he was able to get rid of the severe pain he was in. I pray that the tumor will not grow and that the pain stays away in 2010! I want to say again, Thank you to all of you for your love and support during that time. It will never be forgotten! I tear up even as I write it. Thank You! If I had to choose the one best thing that happened to me this past year, I would have to say seeing Ken out of pain was that thing . Second to that would be the news that David and Jolene were going to be parents.
I am looking forward to this New Year with anticipation of wonderful things and I know that God has some super surprises lined up for us, but if we have to face some tough times this year, I also know that He will see us through and that He will be there for us every step of the way.
So for 2010, We will take it one step at a time, one day at a time, with our hand in the hand of the Master.

Let everyday be a day of good, Godly, righteous decisions, because every little decision adds up and equals your quality of life.
your decision+your decision+your decision=your life
your thoughts+your words+your actions= your life
!Live carefully, Live thoughtfully in 2010!

Learn and grow in 2010. Let others help you grow. Listen and observe. Let others sharpen you, as Iron sharpens iron. Don't overly sensitive or easily offended, but LISTEN AND GROW!
I love you all!
