As I have reflected upon the past year, I realize I have been very blessed. Of course there have been some bumps in my journey. That is just how life it. But, when I really think about it, I have had very few bumps in 2015. My journey has been delightful. I lost some very important people in my life but somehow I was able to move on, and thank the good Lord for having spent a life time with them.
My time is spent with family, friends, and enjoying my home. My church, my worship of my Savior Jesus Christ are very important to me.
Re-connected with cherished friends from my youth.
These are the friends from my youth, and we still get together whenever we can.
I put together a HUGE Family reunion. . .Oh my what a wonderful time we had. Over 100 cousins gathered to celebrate our wonderful heritage. It was amazing.
Just a couple of months later, I gathered together with my other side of the family and again celebrated my heritage with the people I love the most.
I spent time in The Motherland and visited cousins, and old family houses.
I could not ask for anything more than to be with family and friends. Isn't that what life is about?
Families and Friendships. . .they are eternal.
I also filled my days with my many hobbies and creating, and decorating. Making my home a place of beauty. It may be small but it my home, and I love it. Of course the little Terrorists, Teddy and Cash helped. And most of all my children and grandchildren helped. Oh, those Grands of mine. How I love them.
We had a garden party. It was officially called Help Grandma Clean Her Yard! They loved it, but most of all I loved it. We spent so much time, giggling, and laughing, and lots of food and good times together. The Jackson Grands are my precious Stars. Oh, how I love them.
All the decorating continued "smooched" in with a lot of sewing, crocheting, and having fun.
Stitching and crocheting, sewing and oh my a lot more!
Decorating for holidays, and whatever else I can think of.
I love all my "Little Things".
And a little "junking" is also added to the list.
So from my house to yours, I wish you all a
And I hope to see you at my blog. . .I send hugs to friends who I have never met face to face, but you have become my friends none the less. And to my long time, stay with me friends and family I love you all. I am thrilled when I see that you have visited, and left a message. Though there may be miles between us, I feel the connection. So take good care, and God willing I will be here for more blogging for a long, long time.
