December Dreaming

Standard

Life has been very different for us for a while, thus the lack of blogging.  Between knee surgery for myself, a busy work schedule, a trip to Missoula in October, a fun filled Thanksgiving (with one special day getting the whole family together, including all 8 grandchildren to get Christmas trees for everyone), and many weekends with our three year old granddaughter – life has whizzed by.  Sometimes I have fallen far short of having a grateful heart in the midst of a trial even though I know my heavenly Father always has the best for us.  Often I have forgotten to look for the good and instead focused on the bad/hard!  I know I am not alone in handling life in this fashion but I know the cost is not worth it.  So now as we turn our thoughts to the upcoming Holiday festivities I’M DREAMING OF A WHITE CHRISTMAS (which we are guaranteed here in the heart of the mountains), I have been DECKING THE HALLS WITH BOUGHS OF HOLLY (maybe not as much as I usually do), and looking forward to a SILENT NIGHT (Oh for a night of good sleep!).  The holiday season is drawing to a close but I am going to post this blog that has been sitting in the hopper for quite some time – like I said things have been a bit upside down lately!!!

But truly, life is a blessing, every second, and we have so very  much to be grateful for!!!  A little effort towards enjoying yourself and your loved ones has a big payoff – JOY TO THE WORLD!!!  (At least your little part of it!)

Some interesting pics!
