My kids convinced me a while ago to set up a profile on Facebook. I wasn’t really very thrilled about it, but they thought it would be a good way to promote my Etsy business. I can’t really say whether being on Facebook has really been a boost for my business, but I am having a blast reconnecting with friends and family I haven’t seen in years. I have been pleased to see that I am not the only person in my graduating class that has aged..LOL Isn’t it funny how real life is not as it seems in high school. THANK GOODNESS!!!
Our family had a wonderful Christmas. It was wonderful being together…I was sad that our oldest son, Steven couldn’t be here with us, but I know that is how life is when your kids grow up and have lives of their own. Our adopted son Christopher seems to be adapting to parenthood very well. Chris, Heather and baby Morgan spent Christmas Eve with all of us and it was so nice having him back in the family fold. I can not even begin to tell you all how beautiful our little granddaughter is, and what a joy it was to hold her and see how each of her Aunts and Uncles adored her. We are all anxious for Emma to be able to come home.
Tomorrow is my step-dad’s 82nd birthday. Dad has always been very active and it saddens me to see how much pain he is in and how it discourages him. His joints are really bothering him and have hindered his normal activities. I hope it is just a passing thing and he will start feeling better soon.
I just read a wonderful book called “Shades of Blue” by Karen Kingsbury. It is a beautiful, heart wrenching book on past choices and forgiveness. I cried through a good share of it, but it was truly beautiful. If you get a chance to read it, you won’t be sorry. Just keep the tissues handy. :o)
