I'm a little late with a Happy New Year post, but with good reason. We had a very special Christmas gift this year - our baby nephew came a little early - on Christmas day! We are all very glad to meet him, and his Aunt Nan (that's me) has been busy knitting him some little mitts to keep him from mauling his sweet little face.
We spent the weekend before Christmas visiting family - both sides. It was great to see everyone. It is sad that we all are so busy with our day to day lives that a year or more sometimes slips by before we come back together. This was our first Christmas without my mother-in-law and without my grandmother. They are missed.
Ah, but a new year brings hope for new beginnings. I hope to:
*continue in my ever-growing relationship with Christ
*work on my priorities - putting my husband and kids before my work, my friends, myself
*do a better job of reflecing His light
*continue with charity knitting, but also make a few things for me
*shed some of these 50 (did I really say 50?) excess pounds
Happy New Year and Many Happy Stitches!
