I have been thinking for a couple of days now on what word I could choose for this coming year. It was a little hard because I didn't want to change it from this years' one. Seeing the good has really changed my life. So it was a little hard to give that one up. (but I won't really) Today it came to me. The word I have chosen is NEARER, I want to grow nearer to God plus also nearer to my children and grandchildren. (these are really my stepchildren and grandchildren but I didn't want to use that term) Anyway, I think this will be a good word for me this coming year.
Happy New Year to everyone.
My two Sarah/Saras came to visit us for Thanksgiving. Aren't they just the cutest? Sarah(in the gray) is my great niece and Sara(in the brown) is my granddaughter. Sara is a little older than Sarah. Sara was born in August and Sarah was born in October. I am so glad that these little girls are in my life.
Tom and I were walking around an antique store and saw lots of fun things. We were making a purchase and I pointed out this ring. That began us looking at lots of rings and trying them on. Then Tom told the lady we would take this one. What a guy. It was on sale too. Couldn't pass that up.
Well, on Tuesday, September 30, 2014 I turned 55. So, after work I headed to Ross to join the club they have. On Tuesdays they offer people 55 and over a 10% discount. I bought a pair of pajama pants and slippers. I saved a whole $1.50. Yippee!!!
A scripture that I came across in my reading of the book Love Life and See Good Days by Emily Freeman. This is perfect quote that goes along with the theme for the year. Let me tell you that looking for the good side of things has made a big difference in my life. It is truly amazing. I might have to keep this again for next year.
