One Little Word.....2010 is going to be BETTER....

Ali Edwards, a celebrity artist in the scrapbooking world, has chosen a word for each new year...and she challenges her blog readers to do so, as well.

I always have good intentions to choose a word (I often choose one...change my mind....etc.) and stick to it. But I have not followed through well.

This new year, I have chosen the word BETTER. I know that 2010 will be better for me and my family. 2009 has been such a challenge for us and so many families in these United States. But I know that things will change. We have to make it so.

Better may not be easy to come by. It may take some work and sacrifice, in the beginning. But I know that it will be worth it. I haven't set about on the details...and will keep those to myself...but I know that the better part will be obvious for those around us to see. I want to show myself "better" to those that see me. Physically, yeah...of course. But spiritually, emotionally...anyway that I can be better...that will be my goal.

And in my endeavor to be family will only benefit. We will all be better people for it.
I know it.

Happy New Year friends and family. I love you all and cherish our relationships so much. I know that hardly no one will read my blog...but it is out there now. I have said it and I mean it.

God Bless!!!!!

Rest in peace, Grandma Henderson.

Grandma Henderson passed away Monday evening, December 14th, 2009.

She was my dad's mom. She had a husband and 3 sons...but was survived by only 2 of the son's - Larry and Gary.

She led an interesting life. Was a tough cookie. Loved her God and wasn't afraid to talk about it.

She is in the company of her husband, Curt, and her youngest son, Danny...who passed away about a year ago.

She looked just like her mom, Little Grandma Morgan. They had the same laugh.

Rest in peace, Grandma. We love you and will miss you.
