~~~Here's to a Happy New Year ~~~


As I sit and reflect back on the year 2008, quite honestly I'll be glad to see it go. This year was especially challenging for us on so many levels. Dh or as fondly call him Mr. P. has had a few health issues. Those continue, so we pray that 2009 he has a better year. In October the blog was started and a whole new world opened itself up to me. I was amazed at the enormous amount of support and friendships that would form. I am so humbled each and every day that you take the time to come by. I'm looking forward to making new friends and continuing with the old ones. So, for each of you I wish you the Happiest New Year!! Looking forward to seeing you then..
hugs and hugs ~lynne~

I hope they're able to give him some relief from his health issues. I'm glad you started blogging, it's been a fun adventure getting to know you and the other ladies out here! I honestly don't know if I'd have enough faith to keep doing what I do if not for the friendships I've formed here. Happy New Year to you too!

Oh Lynne, I sure hope and pray that 2009 will be a lot better for Mr. P's body and that your home flooding issues will all soon be over. It's another year, let's celebrate! Love ya, my friend....Christine

Glenda said...

I can't say that I am really sorry to see 2008 go bye bye. I know you shouldn't wish your life away so I don't. I didn't wish it to be over, just to make it through. Mission accomplished.
Somehow a New Year always seems to hold so much promise. I hope the year 2009 lives up to the promise for all of us.

Lynne (lynnesgiftsfromtheheart) said...

Glenda you are so right. We shouldn't wish our lives away. Just try to get thur and then say mission accomplished.. You always have such a unique way of looking at things...hugs ~lynne~
