gratituesday reflection on 2008

Looking back on 2008 I would like to list the great things that happened and thank God for carrying us through the times when it wasnt that great. I became a grandmother in September but also lost our business in October. I saw my son play football and love it going to the playoffs but also saw them loose and the seniors to look defeated. I believe that for every valley God will provide a mountian and it is for this reason that I dream of 2009 where God will carry us through the goods and the bads and be there when we are full of joy or feel lonely. It is 2009 where things will come to an end where my daughter will graduate highschool, my son will graduate from jr college and move on to university, where my middle son will play his last year of highschool sports and where new begginings will happen as well such as my nephew begins kindergarten, my daughter will find herself going back to school or work, where my middle daughter will begin college and where my grandbaby will turn a year old. Thank God that no matter where or what we do he will be there for us all.

winter giveaway

A Pondering Heart will be having a give away for several days that you are going to have to check out. It looks like lots of fun and if you go to the blog here you can see the list of items. Come on enter a giveaway have a chance to win.

The blog Speaking from the Heart has started a new meme. One that I believe I will love. This is what she wrote about the new meme that she is starting up

Over Thanksgiving and Christmas, I have heard so many wonderful
stories about my ancestors. There were also stories about my childhood, which I
totally had forgotten. I have made a mental note of each story and have every
intentions of documenting it. In order to help me in this area, I have decided
to blog a weekly story about my ancestors,and about my childhood. I want to have
these stories written down, before my memory escapes from me, and to leave a
legacy for my children and for future generations.

I wanted to share with you about my Grandmothers christmas tree. This tree was always special to me. You see my grandmother lived in the country and would go out and cut down her own christmas tree. Because she did it herself this tree was always a bit small. It stood about 3 feet tall at the most and boy did she decorate it with lights and ornaments. After my grandfathers death things changed and these little trees changed into an artificial tree that was still quite cute and neat but not the same. My grandmother seemed to change little things in her life never making a broad change but ones that always fit together somehow. I loved her because she was so frugal but never let on. My parents have often said that I am alot like her and I consider that a compliment knowing what type of lady she was. I loved her and I am sure you will being hearing lots more about her.
