FAITHFUL for 2010

For the last few years I have tried to think of a word that defines me and something that I can focus my thoughts on. I have had words such as ENOUGH, GRATEFUL, and SIMPLIFY. As I look at events that have transpired over the course of the year I realize that my actions and feeling usually can be summed up in the word. So with 2010 here I think that I want to be FAITHFUL. So this year I will center my actions and goals on being faithful. Faithful in living the values and principles I hold dear. I want to be faithful in my relationships with family and friends. I want to be faithful to myself and most importantly to my Heavenly Father. Here's to a productive, possitive, and faithful 2010.
First Finish of the year.

I went through the Knitting 2010 calender and saw the pattern for the neckwarmer/cowl. While watching the Fiesta Bowl I made this for my DD. It is so soft and it came together in just a couple of hours. I think I will make a few more for gifts.

Friday Ric and I went to Hailee's school to watch her receive an award of excellence. We are so very proud of all our grand children when they are recognized for their hard work.

As I put the last of the decorations away, I wanted to post about one other tradition that started when I was little. During the break between Christmas and New Years I would always put together a jig saw puzzle. It gave me something to do as well as a pass time while watching the Bowl games. This year was no exception to this long standing habit. I finished just as the last football game ended and in time for Sevrine to be home from Utah.

I like that--FAITHFUL! Our Lord was faithful in all things! I know I can do a lot better than I'm doing, so thanks for the reminder, Gayle!

I used to love to do puzzles, as well, but my brother, more so! But, he was stricken with a rare form of MD and can no longer do anything like that. It makes me realize just again how blessed I am to be able to do things with my hands. God bless him--he has such a wonderful way of dealing with his everyday life--it's amazing.

Hi Gayle--thanks so much for your prayers for Mama! It's taking a toll on both of us, and I wonder how long I'll be able to keep going at this pace. She sounded pretty good earlier today, but it's time for me to go and stay til at least bedtime for her.
