Happy New Year

May 2012 be a year of peace, joy, love and comfort - rest if that is needed, energy if that is needed, both if both are needed.
May you live 2012 intentionally, kindly, lovingly, and *fully*.
Happy New Year.

My dogs do not share well

I'm sitting here in my kitchen, about to clean up from dinner and the dogs have been given their own chew bone. However Jack, the more dominant one, will NOT leave Harvey alone. Good gravy, it's like two toddlers. He finally got the point and has gone into the other room with his.

This is officially the Christmas of 'Give Ourselves a Break". It is a hard Christmas for me. My FIL's news was good though, he is going to have surgery and chemo and the doctors are hopeful.
Still, it's hard for me. Tears at odd times.

Our oldest may be getting his driver's license next week, yikes!

Sorry. Not much on the writing front these days. May your Christmas be blessed, and if you do or  don't celebrate Christmas, I wish you peace, joy and love. And may 2012 be a good year for all.

Advent is one of my favorite seasons of the church year. I adore the hymns, the preparations, the entire thing. This year, I already knew that the hope of Advent would be something I would be clinging to. Now I find I'm clinging to it even more. My FIL has been diagnosed with mesothiloma ( I don't htink I"m spelling this right, but i'm in a hurry) around his heart and in his lungs. Not Good. So, for the second time in just a few years, I got to tell my children their grandparent is dying.
