What About Me?

Now there is a good question to ponder
What About Me?

I recently celebrated my birthday.  
If you have not figured it out yet 
I am not a youngin . .
I am old more mature.
I have traveled the road of life. . 
 I can tell you it has not been a
fully paved, super highway.

It has been a bumpy, dusty road, 
full of potholes and dangerous switch-back curves.

Now where am I going with this?
Well let me tell you. . . .

Along this journey I have pretty much 
taken care, to make sure everyone that
traveled with me, was safe, happy and comfortable.
From the time I was a young child
it seems I have had the responsibility to
take care of someone.  Just make sure
things are ok.

Now at this time in my life, after
70 plus 1 years- - - I am
beginning to wonder
What about me?

Who is going to make sure I am ok?
Oh, sure I have a wonderful family
friends who care and a church full of
good "intentions" people.
When I come to one of those dangerous
switch back curves that could possibly 
take me over the edge. . . or
Sometimes it  is not something so
dramatic and terrifying. 
It could be a "bump"
that knocks my breath away.
Who is going to take care me?

Many years ago a doctor ask me
"Who takes care of Karie?"
Well, I still wonder and I am still asking . . .

What About Me?

January Ramblings

Well, hello!
I hope you are all doing well.
I have a few January ramblings.
Just me, and my life, and the
way I see things.

Isn't January lovely?
It has it's own unique beauty and feel.
I am one of the few who really likes this
month of JANUARY.

Well why wouldn't I?
I celebrate the whole month.
I have my brother's birthday
I have my son's birthday
I have 2 grandson's birthdays
I have a granddaughter who has a birthday also
And I celebrate my BIRTHDAY!

Yes, I like birthdays. . . I like growing older.
I know too many people who never grew old.
I am thankful the good Lord blesses me with life.

After all the totes are put away from Christmas
A little January decorating takes place.
Although it is about time to bring out a few
Valentine decorations.

I changed the grouping a little. 

My daughter and family gave me this
beautiful picture of the Savior
Jesus Christ.
The frames in the grouping are all white or cream
So I needed to balance the grouping when I
added the darker frame picture of Jesus.
No worries!!

I already had a picture with a dark frame of
The Salt Lake Temple.
It went perfect on the opposite side of the
grouping.  I like it.

Sometimes I wonder about all this changing and fussing.
Does anyone care but me?
Well, who knows, but I care
And I am important.

As long as I keep having those January birthdays
I will be changing and fussing about my house.

I live in a small condo, and I am happy.
I want to have an inviting cozy feeling,
So others can feel welcome and at peace.

I wanted the picture of the Savior
for me to enjoy, to remind me of
His constant presence in my life.  And to
let those who enter my home know that
He, Jesus Christ is at the center of my life.
He is at the center of my home.

Now I know that a picture does not give the peace
His peace comes from Him as we
live our lives the best we can to honor and love Him.

I hope you have the most enjoyable
 days with abounding kindness and peace.

Greetings To A New Year 2019

Well Hello
Welcome to this beautiful life.
It is a cold winter day on January 1, 2019.
Usually it is on the arrival of a new year.
It is January in Utah
It is Cold!
I have been trying to get my 
Home back to order
After Christmas it seems good to
try and get things back to normal.

The problem is. . .
Everything looks so bare.
Every table top and shelf looks
Dull and bare.
So New Years Day
I will spend time trying to liven the
winter decor to not look so bare.
Arrange and rearrange.

Welcome to my world
