Happy New Year!




HAPPY  NEW  YEAR!

Wishing my dear blogging family
good health and wealth.

See you next year...



A New Year’s Prayer



May God make your year a happy one!


Not by shielding you from all sorrows and pain,


But by strengthening you to bear it, as it comes;


Not by making your path easy,


But by making you sturdy to travel any path;


Not by taking hardships from you,


But by taking fear from your heart;


Not by granting you unbroken sunshine,


But by keeping your face bright, even in the shadows;


Not by making your life always pleasant,


But by showing you when people and their causes need you most,


and by making you anxious to be there to help.


God’s love, peace, hope and joy to you for the year ahead.

Happy New Year, Karen ~ The kid-lings are beautiful! Yes, I sure do know about Celiac disease, I hope that all goes well for her. I have Crohn's.

I didn't realize nor catch until today that you love genealogy ... we have done it for 30 years & are finally wrapping it up for all to enjoy.

Thank you for a wonderful year of your friendship ... look forward to many more days of enjoyment.

TTFN ~ Marydon
