Looking Back Over 2016

Standard

I had a very sad thing happen.  I somehow lost most of my pictures from last year.  They’re gone!!!!!  There were some Herrmann family reunion pictures, birthday pictures, more cute dog pictures, some other holiday pics and much more and I can’t find them.  I am sick at heart.  So, to prevent further loss I am downloading a few pics I do have in chronological order.  Lesson learned — only I am not sure just how it happened.  Here’s what I have:

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!
