I wish I was clever like my friend JSUE who posted 100 things about herself on her 100th post! I am not that clever nor do I know 100 things about me that are interesting enough to hold your attention for that long of a read. So, I will post things that have been happening around here or milling around in my head. Honestly, what a wonderful way to start the new year by reflecting on things that have happened to us whether it be a blessing or a challenge!

1. I received an email today stating I am 8 weeks pregnant. ummm-NO! not true! There must be 2 of me!

2. They say things happen in threes but what if that keeps going? hubby lost his job, our bank account had money stolen out of it, our car battery died, camera lens broke, the kitchen sink flooded and my phone stopped working( 3 times). The car battery is fixed so I a grateful for that. Did I mention that we are on our fourth set of threes?

3. I wished someone had pulled me aside right when my son was born(okay maybe not right after) to tell me of the cute crafty things to do with his little hands and feet. I know, I know! A teacher is “suppose to” to KNOW all those cute memory making crafts. Yes, I do know many but the Christmas Tree skirt with imprints of their little hands as the years go by, that is so special!

4. Speaking of my precious boy! Time flies by when they are so little! It is hard to believe his first birthday has past and I am planning the second one. Seriously, I just did this!!!! No wonder women keep having babies. I don’t blame ya. Children are a gift! Did I mention that my gift is 3 feet tall?

5. Sometimes the greatest gifts are given anonymously. I have experienced that just in the past few weeks. What blessings! I have thanked God for each one that has come across my table.

6. I believe that spiritual warfare is real and seems to be more so in my family lately! Just in the past 7 months both my mom and dad have either been hospitalized by way of ambulance or have had at least 5 doctors appointments a month. My mom is still not 100%. Her nose bleeds were at a minimum until recently. So the search begins again to get answers to our questions. I am grateful that my dad has his family near by to help out when he needs it,¬†otherwise I would be pulling my hair out! It probably sounds strange but the “not knowing” of what is wrong with one of your parents can be draining! This is just one avenue that satan knows can make me doubt or grow weary. I must arm myself with scripture, prayer, and people who are wise to get me through such times as these.

7. Inspiration = the movie Julie & Julia! If you have not seen it, GO GET IT TODAY! I will put it at the top of my list for best movies seen in 2009! I watched it last night again just to get me inspired for 2010.

8. I am not happy about the the outcome of the votes(60 to 39) for the new “health care” reform bill. I am not one to talk about politics here but seriously folks we have got to wake up! I am all for better health care in our country. However, this is not the way to go! Do we really know what it is going to do to private insurance? Have you heard how they feel about the elderly and what kind of “coverage” they “deserve?” Does anyone else find it interesting that they think putting a 10% tax on tanning salons will fund health care? Anyone have an opinion on this matter that you are willing to share?

9. I am still stuck on the book Eclipse. I read Twilight and New Moon in 4 days. Eclipse has been occupying my bed side table for 7 months. *sigh* I don’t know what it is about this book but it seems so sSSLLLooowww. I guess I could wimp out and wait for the movie =0). Just kidding.

10. I am making my new year’s resolutions but I am in serious prayer about them. If anything, I want them to be Christ centered. It is easy to say I am going to study God’s word more but to ask Him where He wants me to study so I can grow spiritually is bit humbling. Hey, did you know that getting “out of debt” is in the top ten new years resolutions? Help others, get organized, fitness, weight goals, enjoy life more are just some of the others in the top ten! I could use them all. However, I will only pick 2!

Thank y’all for loving me right where I am and reading my blog even when I was boring! I pray that 2010 will be a year of abundant blessings for you and your family.
