Christmas Gift for You!

Hello my faithful blog friends.

It’s been many months since I have had the time or inclination to update my blog or to even make any graphics to share with you.  A lot has happened, some good, some bad, but I am thankful that I am able to wake up each morning looking forward to the day.  That has not always been the case, with me, and life is a joy when the future looks promising.  No, we still do not have gainful employment in our house but we are doing our best to make the most of what we have.

My daughter, Kim, is doing much better now than she has in years; praise God!  The feeding tube was removed from her abdomen and she is doing well with the surgery to widen the stomach opening every 90 days.  She has become stronger, has a new love interest, and looks forward to her days too.  My granddaughter, Suzy, has moved back to North Carolina from her bio-Mom’s in South Carolina.  My grandson Joshua is doing wonderful in school and we are so proud of the young man he is, as he has had some tough things to overcome in his eleven years! He remains a very bright spot in my life!

My daughter, Suzi, still lives in Virginia with her husband and children.  My grandson, Timothy, is now 21 and I expect to hear that he will be getting married soon.  My granddaughter, Tabitha, is having some problems with school but remains positive about it and her future.  She stays in close contact with me, much to my surprise (she is sixteen!) and delight.

As I was coming up to this age, I never saw myself as someone’s grandmother; I certainly never thought I would enjoy being one either! Surprise, surprise! Grandchildren are wonderful.

I sincerely hope you all have not forgotten me or think that I have forgotten you either. Who would have thought I would be able to make you a small graphics gift at this time of year?  It has taken me over a month to make six months worth of an 8.5 x 11 inch calendar!  I am calling this Part 1 with the hope that the last six months, Part 2, will be finished by the end of January 2011. I like this size calendar page because I print one out each month and hang it on the back wall of my computer desk where it is available ‘at a glance.’ This size is also great for resizing to wallet size.  Hope you enjoy using it.


Merry Christmas to all of you and may God grant you peace and joy for 2011.

I just wanted to say I love reading about your family and your life. Write when you can. I am happy Kim is doing so well. My dad had a feeding tube and I know how rough that is. My mom and I took care of him to the very end.
I miss you and can't wait to here all about your life!
