I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and Happy New Year. Our first Christmas with Maggie Kate was a blessing. Of course she had no idea what was going on but loved the Christmas lights!
I've been keeping her a couple of days a week and have enjoyed her so much. I love those gummy grins she gives me :) It's so worth the hour drive to and from Jennifer's house to love her and watch her grow and learn something new every day. She brings me and her Poppy so much joy.
Of course Christmas like every holiday is bittersweet without Amber here with us. She would have spoiled Maggie Kate to the moon and back! I'll admit I've had a rough time thinking about the "could have beens" and have shed many tears since Maggie Kate was born. I can't help but think about the children Amber might have had had things been different. But God had other plans and maybe one day I will truly understand. I honestly don't know where I would be without my Faith and knowing I will see her again one day soon in Heaven. This is just our temporary home.
I think this time of year is just depressing! I love Christmas and taking down all the decorations is refreshing but it's so gloomy in the house. Last year right before Christmas I had back surgery and didn't pack my decorations away the way I normally organize it all and this year I took extra time packing and labeling it. I will know next year what box everything is in!
It has been so cold here! The coldest weather we've had in 18 years ... brr! And I know it has been warm here compared to people living in the northern states.
Please say a prayer for me. I am contemplating whether to continue my blog. I didn't post as much last year as I have in the past. And I'm not sure about this year. I've made such wonderful friends through blogging and treasure those friendships. In the world of blogging there are so many more than there were four years ago when I began my blog. I often think people just want to see pretty pictures of gorgeous homes and mine is not that at all. It's just little ole me and my simple way of life. Nothing fancy at all! I'm going to pray about it and hope you will say a prayer for me.
Take care and God Bless!
