We wish everyone a Happy New Year! It
seems like only last week when we were
out cursing the snowblower during one
of last winters final snowfalls.

blog, and hope they enjoy it while they’re
here. We have just passed 301,000 visits and

Although we lost a few close friends
during the year, we are still thankful
for the time we got to spend with them.
We are thankful our families have been
healthy, and all the family gatherings
went off without a glitch.
Even though we consider it a curse, we
are thankful for our green thumb. If
you know me, you know I hate yard work.
We don’t mind nurturing a sick plant back
to health, then the upkeep gets boring.
We are thankful for friends and family
who support us during the hard times,
cheer us up during sad times, and help
us celebrate the good times.
We thank God we live in America and
have the freedoms we do. Even if we
aren’t happy with something, we still
have the freedom to state the fact that
we aren’t happy.
We are also thankful that we have an
election coming up, which ties in with
the freedoms mentioned above.
And we are thankful for the patriots
who volunteer to protect our freedoms
from those who wish to do us harm.
Comments are always welcome.
