Another Christmas, Another Year

Another Christmas come and gone. The years fly by when you're getting older. Seems like Christmas comes every other month.

We had a marvelous holiday. Lori had a bad wreck on December 20, but praise the Lord, survived with a few compressed vertebre and cracked tail bone..........and soreness unimaginable. She flipped end over end three times and thank goodness for seatbelts, airbags and GUARDIAN ANGELS. This made our Christmas much more special knowing she is Ok. All my kids and grands were here at the house and we ate, played games, ate, opened gifts, ate, played games and then ate. It was the most enjoyable Christmas ever. Seems as if it just keeps getting sweeter each year.

My kids and grands are so great. They gave me a nikon camera that I had wanted for so long. It was so unexpected and I LOVE it. I will be putting some of my handi-work (LOL) on here before long. I hope each of you had as great a holiday as we did.


"If man's greatest need had been knowledge,
God would have sent us an educator.
If man's greatest need had been physical health
God would have sent us a doctor.
If man's greatest need had been money
God would have sent us an entrepreneur.
If man's greatest need had been excitement,
God would have sent us an entertainer.
But Man's greatest need was forgiveness,
so God sent us a savior."

Please excuse the Thanksgiving theme. I'll get a Christmas one on as soon as I can. We had a marvelous Thanksgiving out at the South Plains Co-Op this year. We had more room and the kids played Wii and we watched old old, I mean when Lana was little. It was a marvelous day and way too much to eat.
We will be celebrating Christmas at our house again this year. We're a little crowded, but being a close family, we don't mind. We just have the usual Turkey and dressing fare and love it as much as we did on Thanksgiving. I'd prefer not to have gifts, but we always do. And it is ok as long as we remember that we are celebrating Jesus Christ's birthday. Let 's all remember to give praise and glory to the Lord for our blessings........blessings for which we are so undeserving. Don't forget our service men protecting our freedom. They will miss being with their families and will be sad for the kids. I pray for their safe return. My prayers go out to the families that have lost loved ones. This will be an especially had Christmas for all of them. There are three families that are on my heart.
My life is so good. My three year old grandaughter told me today I was old. I said "no I'm not." and she said..............."my momma said you are".

Being old is not is being perceived as old that is bad. Until next time, love you all. Remember me as the "Hugging Honeyma"
