Pieces of the Puzzle Come Together

The holidays are coming to a close. Tomorrow morning we will awaken to a brand new year.

One of the highlights of this final week was putting together a 750 piece puzzle with my granddaughter. I close this year with one of my favorite things- bookshelves with every nook and cranny stuffed with books.

I began the year by writing a quote from a book-
"There are years that ask questions and years that answer them."
2010 was for me a year with answers, finally.
In the weeks to come, I hope to gain more clarity and share a few of them.

Let There Be Light

Yay! We got a real tree this year and I put up lights all around the house. I love Christmas :)

Even though it was a frosty 8 degrees this morning, the sunshine mixed with the cold made even old trees look beautiful!

Time to Switch Gears

On Friday, Terry and I went to Camden with our daughter and her family merely to enjoy the holiday atmosphere. It was delightful.
I don't think any store could top staying at my sister-in-law's home the previous night. Every room shown with Christmas lights, music, and knick-knacks - candy canes on the overhead hanging light to Singing Santa. I had to share him with my sister bloggers.

I don't have one Christmas decoration up yet. When I've had the time, I haven't had the energy. It's time to switch gears and enjoy a bit of Christmas here in my home.

I know my blogging is short and sweet these days but it is two weeks before Christmas :)

My hubby and I have watched every episode this season of The Biggest Loser. Ada is my favorite.

When I think of getting out to the gym in the morning, I want to cover my head and go back to sleep. But then I remember that it's worth it.
I'm not there to lose weight. As a matter of fact I'd like to gain a bit. My goal is to increase my muscle mass and overall body strength.

There is a girl there who works nights and shows up in the morning to work out before going home. She has a long way to go and I'm rooting for her.

We all have different journeys, but here's to cheering you on wherever you are on yours!

My daughter recommended this CD. I bought it via Itunes. It is truly a testimony to God's grace. If you don't know their story, google Steven Curtis Chapman.

The past 24 hours were filled with blessings.
My daughter came home after 3 years away serving in the military. It was a quick visit with her hubby and two daughters in tow, McKenna now 14 and Lily 3 monthes. They are only a few hours away now.
I took 75 pictures in a short time. One of my favorite was when Ken laid on the floor with her sister. Lily grabbed Ken's hair and was asleep in an instant. So precious.
I loved every moment :)
