Something to Look Forward To

The fake tree is put away for another year, most of our out-of-town guests are gone, and now the winter depression is about to settle in. I think that's why New Year's resolutions were invented. To give you something to think about besides the after-holiday let down.

There's a saying that the secret to happiness is having something to do, having something to look forward to, and having someone to love. And one of my New Year's resolutions is to revamp this blog, so that'll give me something to do, and you something to look forward to. And since we all have someone to love--Annie--we should be set.

But don't you feel that sometimes, that you just need a change? January just seems like the right time to start something new. I've been giving updates on Annie's progress for almost two years, and I feel a little uncreative with a need to diversify, yet I'm undecided about what to do. Maybe you guys should give me your ideas, and the winner will get an all-expenses trip to Palm Springs. What do you think?

Your word is a lamp to my feet
And a light to my path. Psalm 119:105

Well, friend, you would probably tell me to pray about it, and then do what God put on my heart, so I guess we'll start there.

But...you should know that whatever you do for us is okay. I personally think that if this blog can bring you peace and healing, then it's doing its job. You're a fantastic writer, Jean.

Do I get the trip? xxxooo:)

Gretchen--yes, pray about it, and tell me what you think. BTW, thanks for the compliment--I really do like to write--I guess I think it's time to make the information more useful to readers.

And--you have moved to final jeopardy.

I do hope that this means your Blog will still be continuing. It is a nightly necessity to see if there is any new news on Annie! And the stories of your life and faith are a HUGE source of inspiration and good feeling! Whatever you do, we love you Jean! Do what is best for you, for Annie and your family!

Love,
Tanya

jean, you've been doing a fine job with the updates. i would surmise that doing updates gives you something in return as well.

that's my two cents -

but i'm not the one taking the time and effort to provide all this good information to the world:)

love,

jeff
