Happy New Year!

I guess this is a day to reflect on the past year and look forward to the one ahead. We have been very fortunate this year. We have had lots of time to spend with both families and enjoyed time just with ourselves. I am very lucky to have a husband who works so that I can stay at home and be available for Jessica. We have 3 sons who add alot to our lives, even though we don't see them enough and then we are blessed with Jessica. She is definately the "light of our lives." She brightens everyone's life that she touches. Some days her light is brighter than others but it is always shining. Times when I think I might have reached the end of my rope, she will climb up in my lap and give me a big smile and her "I'm not going to let go" hug.

We have been surrounded with family and friends who enrich our lives everyday. We are also blessed to have a church family that loves and supports us through good times and bad.

2007 has been a good year for us, as no one has been seriously ill and we pray that will continue into 2008. As this year ends tonight and you reflect on your blessings, try to take some time and thank someone who has been special to you that maybe you have forgotten to thank. It will help them and you start off 2008 feeling good.

From our house to yours---HAPPY NEW YEAR! May 2008 be a terrific year for you!
