Hello Friends!
My computer is working again and I am very glad for that, but so sad that I didn't get my matchbox pictures up on the days.  I can't seeem to get my pictures loaded on my computer, but now that I can e-mail, I have A LOT of thank yous to send to all the wonderful matchbox Christmas ornament makers that I was lucky enough to receive treasures from!  That's is what I'll work on this weekend.  And, a HUGE task, is going to be organizing my sewing room.  I seem to be forever working on that. 

Annabelle, Zoey and my Dear Hubby are having a quiet New Year's Eve with me.  We had a party to go to, but it is so foggy out that we decided it would be safer to stay home.  

I am not one for making new year resolutions, but I have been thinking about what I'd like to accomplish in 2011.  I have been inspired by a few blogs I have read today and also by taking a look at what I need to improve upon in my own life.   I do love that a new year is here, fresh and new, and that I can begin the new year with a hopeful heart.    I have so much to be thankful for, including my family and friends.  And also Annabelle and Zoey!!  I thank God for each and every day that Annabelle is with us!   She has a spunky spirit and is so full of love and I know that it is only by God's Grace that I have been blessed with her for so much longer that we expected!   Right now, Zoey and Annabelle are sleeping away and their beautiful snores are a reminder that God is so loving and does care about the little details in our lives.   God knew just what I needed when Gracie Anne passed up almost three years ago now, and with a new year just a couple of hours away, I am reminded that He loves me enough to take me through anything that comes my way this year.

I hope that your new year will be a very good one and that it will be filled with peace, love and friends.
