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.

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.

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!

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 :)
