When you look at your life, the greatest happinesses are family happinesses. ~Joyce Brothers

Rejoice with your family in the beautiful land of life!  ~Albert Einstein

To us, family means putting your arms around each other and being there.  ~Barbara Bush

And then there are birthdays:  Today is my daughter's 44th birthday and what is so great her brother gets to spend the day with her. This doesn't happen often as he lives in New Mexico and has had to get home by now and back to work.

Just remember, once you're over the hill you begin to pick up speed.  ~Charles Schulz

You're not 44, you're eighteen with 26 years experience.~Author Unknown

And my Best Wishes for the New Year to all.

Glory to God in highest heaven,
Who unto man His Son hath given;
While angels sing with tender mirth,
A glad new year to all the earth.
~Martin Luther


  1. Your daughter is beautiful, and your son is very handsome. You really are blessed!

    Love your new years thoughts, too. I wish you a glad one also. :)

    1. Thank you - I wouldn't trade them for anything. Don't get to see them together very often so had to get that picture. A very special New Year to you - love reading your blog.

  2. Glad you are getting some very special family time.

    1. Hey Lynne I hope you are finally warming up a little bit down there in Florida. We've got 3 to 4+ inches so far on the ground. Was nice and snuggly warm in the trailer last nite. A very warm and happy New Year to you two.

  3. Glad you had that great family time together. Happy New Year.

  4. Happy to you guys too. Liked your recap for the year.
