This has been a great year. We have visited children and grandchildren several times out of state. We have had children and grandchildren stay with us several weeks this year. We have taken trips to the coast and saw the beauty and peace of the ocean.
I have learned many things this year about myself about the world and about how grateful I am for what I have. I am grateful that our eldest and her son were able to come over and go to the temple with us as he prepared to leave for his mission in the Arizona Tempe Mission. We are excited and happy with his choice to serve for two years.
I am grateful that Wayne (my husband) has a job and it pays our bills, allows us to pay our tithes and offerings, take trips, help children and do the things that we can.
I am grateful for birthday parties for grandchildren, trips to the coast, babysitting children that are here and so many things that I can't even remember now.
I am grateful that I was able to make composition books, burp rags and receiving blankets, embroider and make a dress for a cute little pixie. So many things to reflect on for this year.
I am grateful that I am happy and that I have felt true joy this year.
