Happy New Year

My wish is for peace on earth this coming year-there is too much fighting  in the world and if only we could bring our sons and daughters home, we would be able to take care of this country and the problems we face.  Let's start using our wealth and resources to enrich the lives of our own citizens instead of trying to be the worlds policmen/fixers of everyone else's problems.  Enough is enough I say-lets just take care of the issues we face as a nation and get our own houses in order.  I pray that we remember what our nation was founded on and return to the guiding principles of our Founding Fathers (and MOTHERS) and use their wisdom to do good and care for each other.
I plan to spend a quiet evening at home with my hubby and at midnight shoot a hole in the sky for good luck to rain down on us in the new year; and also at midnight hang our three wisemen card over our entry door so the wisemen bring us what we need for the coming year. 
God bless us everyone and may there truly be peace on earth....

The day before the day before Christmas

Merry day before the day before Christmas! I hope you all got more done for Christmas than I did LOL!!! My intentions are always good but somehow the time slips by and most of my projects remain undone.  I know what one of my new year's resolutions is going to be.  Today I will probably finish wrapping and and get everything packed up for our quick trip to the grandchildren's for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.  One year I would just like to have a quiet Christmas where we didn't have to run here and there.  But I guess that is what Christmas is all about...
I have a request to make if anyone reads this post. My daughter in law was diagnosed with a cystadenoma of the ovary yesterday-her doctor says there is only a small (15%) chance that it is cancerous. But it is very large (15 cm) and so she has to have surgery to have it removed.  Of course we are all very concerned and praying that it is NOT cancer and that everything goes well and that she does not have to have her other ovary removed.  So if you could say a little prayer today for her that the surgeons hands are skilled and that the biopsy shows no malignancy.
I will probably not be writing again till the beginning of next week, so
Merry Christmas  
a joyous and peaceful
New Year!
God bless us all-please pray for our nation, and for our troops, that we may end all wars and bring our sons and daughters home.  Please pray for peace.

My Husbands surgery results

Just in case anyone who left me kind messages checks the blog- My hubby's surgery went really well-He had immediate relief of the back pain and slept the night after the surgery for the first time in a year.  It is now 6 months and there is still some residual problems-some pain down his right leg, but nothing like he was before.  He is now laid off-his plant shut down and he lost his job the end of September.  He is enjoying the time off after 39 years of working, but I think we are going to need him to work a little while longer.  But it is nice having him home-(after a period of adjustment LOL if you know what I mean!!) The laser surgery is definitely the way to go-1/4 inch incision as opposed to a  6 inch scar like I have!!

Haven't been here for a long time

I promise with the new year to start up my blog again-I would love to use it as a place to put my cards and layouts. And as my journal of sorts-though I keep a journal of my own. My blog has been neglected for many months. Life has a way of getting in the way!!
I have taken pics of the cards I made for two friends-so I can upload them to this page.  I just don't know how to put them on my blog but sure I can figure it out
Merry Christmas  and Happy New Year to all!
