Happy 2015

Good by to 2014 and good riddance. There are so many wonderful memories of that by gone year, but way too many bad ones, as well. As I choose to  look forward, I will not fall into listing any of them.

Winter is here and spring will soon follow. My garden will need a lot of attention. But for now, I am working on my office. A son-in-law and his son-in-law came by on New Years Eve and moved some heavy file cabinets and furniture for me. This will make access much easier. I am grateful for that act of kindness. I have already began to sort, organize, and put away. Next will be our taxes.

No trips are planned for 2015. We will most likely stick pretty close to home. Our daughter Amy anticipates coming for a short stay in the spring and I imagine others will find their way to our door, as well. It is always good to have company for short periods. Family and friends are very special to us. So many are, like us, aging quickly. We never know when we say good by, if it will be for the last time.

May 2015 be looked back on as being a year of peace, love, and friendship. May the Lord bring health and happiness to you and yours, no matter what stage of life this year finds you in today. Happy New Year to all.


  1. Love you! I look forward to seeing you soon!

  2. Hope you will have a BLESSED upcoming year.....but we do see God's hand every day, don't we? Thanks for the family research you do....Nathan told us about it and when we make a trip out to Oregon, it will be fun to look at it :)
