New Year for the old blog!

Trying to resurrect the old blog here...My dear friends know what kind of year 2011 was for my family. If you are new to my blog, let me reminisce for a few minutes. On February 24, 2011, we welcomed in our 2nd grandson/5th grandchild, William Chesterton Morrison! What a very pensive boy he has been....the personality = to his oldest sister, Charity:) We are definitely blessed.

2011 continued to bring many regular monthly visits with my dad and we cherished them greatly. In June, he came to live with us while my sister-in-law was recuperating from a knee replacement. My dad was 85 and we could see him gradually slowing down more. To make this story move rapidly, he suffered a minor stroke in mid July---2 months in 2 different nursing homes, 2 different hospitalizations and then back to my brother's home for him to live out his days. I am so thankful that God allowed me to be of service to my Randy, Susan and my dad. I was able to be with him for 5 weeks until he passed into the arms of precious Savior on Nov. 16. How I miss my dad! Everyone liked him. Never met a stranger. He has been reunited with his wife of 61 years. He is able to see Jesus face to face...My heart aches for that day!

Enter 2012! To be honest, I've been trying to find my niche since dad passed.. When you care for a loved one they encompass your thots 24/7. Now, my thoughts are precious memories! Memories we laugh at and yes, even cry.

Thot it was time to get back to blogging. Looking forward to sharing pics of my crafts...and yes, even our precious family too:)

Thanks for stopping by and hope you continue to do so!

PS Felt it befitting to put a pic of my dad on here! Miss him greatly!
