Happy New Year!

The hustle and bustle of the holiday season is winding down. Our daughters and their families have all returned home safely. We spent a wonderful five days driving down to southern Alabama to visit my mom, arriving home late last night. Yes, we have Christmas decorations to put away, laundry to wash, and housework to finish, but today will be a day of rest.

I have been very neglectful of my tatting and blogging lately. I'm not going to stress out by trying to catch up on reading all that I've missed. Instead, I'll start fresh today!

When I went through the mail this morning, I found a beautiful Christmas card from our daughter Joanne's father-in-law in Slovakia. I'd like to pass on the blessing to all my wonderful friends...

In the daytime, if the sun shines, so shall your expectations come true.
At night when the moon comes out, so shall you receive blessings.
Then, if rain falls, so shall it carry all your problems away from you!

Happy New Year, dear friends!


  1. I love the blessing! Happy New Year :)

    I like the non-stress idea of not trying to catch up with blogs and start anew. Actually, I think I should go back over my own blog and appreciate all I've accomplished - might inspire me to get busy!

  2. Happy New Year! Lovely blessing to pass on.

  3. Happy New Year to you, too! Lovely blessing - David likes it too!

    Non-stress... oh yeahhhhhhhh......

  4. Where are you in South Alabama? I'm not so far from 'Bama...


Just like you, I love getting feedback!
