HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!

This has been one heck of a year.  Started with hubby having triple by-pass surgery and ending with him possibly needing a pacemaker.  In between I became insulin dependant with my diabetes and one of my brothers was diagnosed with bladder cancer.  But despite the roller coaster ride, all is well and my faith in the Lord is stronger than ever. 
 Plus I've made alot of new friends this year and had fun keeping up with the old.  Mended some fences. I actually can't complain about anything.  All the things I thought were bad, were not as bad as others have had it.  I am pretty blessed.

And this New Year coming up, I am NOT making any resolutions.  I have, however, set a few goals for myself.  The first and foremost is to spend more time with my heavenly Father.  Read more of my bible and spend more time praying and conversing with the Lord.  My second goal is to finish the afghans I started for my granddaughters 3 years ago, lol.  Yep, started them before Rossi was born and I'm not even close on either one.  My goal is to finish them for Christmas.  My 3rd goal is a short term goal.  See the chubby couple above?  Well I want them to look like the skinny couple below.  No, not really.  But I do want to lose at least 10 lbs by February 15.  And as I sit here typing and thinking about it, it's do-able.  But I need to make it happen in real life.  I've lost 7 lbs in the last two months so I'm pretty positive if I try hard I can make 10 lbs possible. 
Those are my goals for this year.  Not many, but why be overwhelmed, lol.  Please have a safe New Years Eve and I'll be praying for all of us to keep our resolutions or achieve our goals.

This is a very inspiring post. As you know Ron and I have had our share of upsets this year, but we're going to make 2013 a good one. Happy New Year to you and yours.
