Was it good for you?

Another year almost over and the new to begin. So many things occurred in 2012 and the happiest was the birth of RoseMeredith who will celebrate her first birthday on Thursday, January the 3rd. The blessings have been coming all year. A family in good health. There was a time not too long ago when all three of the children were facing dire health issues and today all are past them and have a clean bill of health. My husband has a job he is thankful to have and has a good doctor who is trying to find the medications that are most helpful to him with his aches and pains. My arthritis is so much better today than it was this time last year. We've had our ups and downs and as a family, our feuds but we are a family who loves the Lord and have learned how to forgive. We are there for each other in prayer and support. I love the idea I saw on Facebook and I believe it came from Pinterest where you take a Mason jar and each day or as good things happen you write it on a scrap of paper and put it in the jar and then this time next year you empty the jar and read all the things you were blessed with the past year. I have not made resolutions for the new year but I do have goals and among them is one I think we all strive for each year and that is to get in better shape. Not just dieting, but to get outside more, get more sun, more energy, and to get back to enjoying and loving the things I love and enjoy. And I want to grow closer each day to God. I want to be a better person each day than I was the day before. I know I am not the person to change the world, but I can consistently make changes and better choices in my little corner of the world.
And I am happy to be back in Bloggyland. I look forward to re-connecting with old friends and making more. Love the dickens out of life and out of YOU~ mizmollye

Have you ever known anyone to form a new year resolution and begin it on Dec. 26...or the previous year??? uh.....I mean for some time I've toyed with the idea of getting back to Blogging and would think...maybe for next year.  This morning I thought WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS AGAIN?  Putting off until...

So by jenkies I went in and made new passwords (because I could not remember my last one and nothing seemed to work) and I updated All About Rose Meredith and Jake's Story. Somewhat. And here I am trying to do the same thing here.

What happened?  Gee I don't know. I could blame it on the death of my son..Or the election and getting caught up in the good and the bad of that. Or I could blame it on Facebook, because EVERYONE is on FB. Right?  Well so what?  Facebook takes an awful lot of time doesn't it. I mean you find your self logging on every few moments throughout the day to see who left you a comment, or who posted a new picture or blah blah blah.

Blogging was one of the best things that ever happened to me. I became creative. I met wonderful friends, many of whom I've grown to love and still am in touch with and many more I've fallen away from and I really miss you! I miss the challenges, the swaps, and in general all of it.

So I do feel as if I've been in a slumber...not quite reachable and I feel awake today. I feel awake and alive for the first time in a long time. So I don't know if any of my "old" blogger buddies still blog, and if so will they somehow find them selves back to me. Will I have anything interesting to write about? And will I have new readers and meet new friends. Sometimes you just have to make the extra effort and be the one to step up and step out.

I'm so glad to be back.  We had a wonderful Christmas and I have so much new going on in my life. What about you. I just can't wait to sit down with each of you and gab awhile.

'til later, mizmollye

When did it happen?

I awoke this morning. Friday and had a "let down" feeling. After mulling this over I realized I begin each Friday with a similar feeling.  Wait a minute.............I thought you were supposed to thing TGIF. You know Thank Goodness it's Friday or Thank God It's Friday and get the "over the moon, elation and just down-right giddiness because the weekend is here and the party begins or NOW I can REALLY enjoy myself for a few days. Right?

I do actually remember really well when I thought that way. But I can't remember when I stopped thinking that way.

Now on Friday mornings, I on one hand am happy, happy, happy that Mike's work week is almost over and we can spend the weekend together, or that because his work week is almost over he can RELAX and enjoy his time off for a few days. Rest his body, or become involved in either projects that needs his attention or stuff he wants to do for his own pleasure.  Then there's the other feeling that my time is up. The five days are gone and I can't get them back. I failed to do all I should or I did/said things I shouldn't have.

Then before I know it Monday comes around and while many are heard and seen with the frowns and mutterings of "It's blue Monday, or where did the weekend go? I secretly experience the most calming and grateful feeling. A new day to make a difference and 5 whole days to do it right this time. Monday just has a "freshness" to me.

I think I now know when this happened.

I have made another new Bloggy. I made it as a way of journalling for my newest granddaughter Rose Meredith as my hands just won't let me write and scrap like I'm used to doing. So please "turn in" every now and then to see what this precious little girl is doing, besides growing:)

You can find us right

Our newest granddaughter..........Rose Meredith Wendling.
She arrived yesterday January 3 on my son Jake's birthday. She weighed 7 lbs. and 12 oz. and is 21 in. long.

We think she is perfect and can't wait to meet her this weekend. She is the fourth child of Jessica, our daughter in law and is the first child of our son Lance (Buddy). They are over the moon and back Happy!

Jess had a C-section and this photo was made right after Rose Meredith made her entrance. Momma and Baby are in perfect shape and condition.

I am smitten and if you've seen my Facebook you already knew that:)
