November and December always end up pretty busy, with all the holidays, birthdays, caroling, cookie exchanges, get-togethers, programs, and other things that go on plus there is just the normal stuff we all have to do. So, now, I am relieved to have everything go back to normal! Well, as normal as my life ever is! <p>
I was thinking about some of the goals I had for 2008 and one of the biggest ones I had for the past year and half was to buy a house. i was thinking about how blessed I am to have that goal come true! Yes, owning your own home has it struggles, but with owning a mobile home, that has it’s struggles as well as renting has many more struggles! What a wonderful blessing to see that we are owning our own home before I was 30!
<p> All the packing, which I struggle with, and tearing up a home is difficult for me so i figure this better be the last move we make in a long time, which having a grant that will go away if we stay here long enough gives us good incentive as well! Our Home!
In our new home at last!
<p> We also struggled last year with losing my grandmother, and this year, since this was the time of year she died, we have talked and had memory times remembering good things and times we shared! Here she is at my wedding, almost 12 years ago!
This was taken a short time before she went to heaven, taken with my sister and cousin.
This year my boy who was afraid of water, learned how to swim fairly well too! That was quite the accomplishment, for not only him! Me, too! It has bolstered my courage and i did attempt some swimming as well, although I am not sure i am ready to go out in public and try! <p>
I am sure 2009 will be full of just as many blessings!
