I got two boxes of chocolates from my kids and grandkids for Christmas...click on the image at left for a better view of the tags. The little ones were up and around before their parents on the day before Christmas, and they opened a few of the gifts before they were supposed to. They also helped themselves to my chocolates. The other box of chocolates looked very similar to this one, but with more empty spaces. = )
My friend Shelly is deployed to Germany at the moment, and she sent this MOST excellent polar bear hat for my grandson. Robby loves it, and has been wearing it almost constantly since we gave it to him. I have some wonderful friends.
And so, for 2011.
I am not a believer in new year's resolutions as they are rarely kept, but there are a few things I would like to aim for.
1. Acceptance of things I can't change
2. Not letting the bad things upset me
3. Being happy with what I have instead of sad about what I don't have
4. Shedding fifty pounds
Well, that last one is my doctor's plan for me...skinny little dude that he is (sigh).
Happy New Year to us, every one. Let us hope for a better year to come. If you see me without a smile, lend me one of yours, and remind me that I need to find one of my own.
