fail to plan
plan to fail
New year resolutions are usually quite loftly.
I am posting my intentions for personal documentation and accountability.
2014 was a good year. But of course I have areas that I need improvement and some accomplishments I want to repeat.
--recently I challenged myself to write (and send) letters
--lose that last 13.2 lbs (maintain that weight!)
--read more with my children
--read the Bible through again
--organize and maintain my food storage

Last night the seventh night was the night of Laughter.
Tonight the eighth night is the night of Serenity.
Each night has indeed been special since we have intentionally looked at this time of year.

The second night of Hanukkah is the celebration of health. Tonight was my boys school Christmas play. All of my family came! So thankful that we were all there tonight and well.
Three years ago my dad had a heart attack. They lost him in the ambulance. But he was at the play tonight with all of his children and grandchildren. (He and my mother celebrated 46 years of marriage yesterday)
I was there...three years ago I became ill with Multiple Sclerosis. My neuro at the time said I would end up in a nursing home.
Eli earlier this week passed a kidney stone. An especially big deal when you are six!
We take our health for granted. During this 2nd night of Hanukkah let's be thankful for our health😊

I am not a good potluck attendee. I don't eat like most folks. So I don't cook like most folks. And I don't like to watch people stuff themselves. But I was invited to a really sweet girlfriend Christmas party...a salad potluck. I searched Pinterest and read over many food blogs and put together a cherry dump that sounded good to me :-)
2 cans cherry pie filling.
2 tubs whip cream
1 can pineapple tidbits drained
2 cans sweetened condensed milk
2 cups mini marshmallows
Mix...chill 2 hrs...serve!
Party and enjoy with friends!

Just because it is Christmas!
Just because you can't say "NO"
Just because you are over extended
Just because you need to find the peace in choosing the best yes!

I had such big plans of blogging my Thanksgiving sentiments. Thanksgiving for me is so much more than the fourth Thursday of November.
Thanksgiving has become my breath. All day every time I am able to do for myself, for family.
Every day when I am able to do and not be done for. There is such satisfaction and pleasure in taking care of myself, my family, my home.
Over the past three years since I have been ill I have found gratitude.
Gratitude in caring for my family
