Bye Bye Christmas



Well the busyness of Christmas is once again past and now we look forward to a new year. And trying to remember a new year when writing the date.

Last year I did the end of year overview and the new year's plan. That turned out to be the most terrible year I have had. So I'm not doing that this year. I found out the hard way that no matter how you plan, nothing is guaranteed.

This year instead I will try to make a new start. I still don't have a "normal" to my life. I can't seem to find what fits for me. I don't do anything on a schedule and that leaves a lot of things that get put off or left out. Right now that left out stuff is my art. I have hit another dry spell.

I do so pray that I will find my normal, find some organization in my house and body, and find the joy that left last year. I want to look forward to getting up again and facing a new day. I just have to remember that my Father is the reason I am here, and He will be by my side.

Penny, Dizzy, and I hope that everyone has a very Happy New Year.

I hope your motivation for art soon returns ... I'm sure everything will fall into place then and 2011 will be much kinder to you.

2010 was turned upside down for us when stepson Richard had his horrific motorbike accident - 5 weeks in coma, 23 weeks in hospital and although home now he has ongoing problems still ... but he is on the mend and things could have been much worse.

So, we don't have any plans either ... I think live for the day is pretty good!

You've had a really, really tough year but you've handled it as well as anyone could. Give yourself credit for that. I've never been where you are so I won't presume to give you advice... but I have read where others in a similar situation said finding a little joy in small everyday things is a step toward healing.

Your beautiful prayer, " I do so pray that I will find my normal, find some organization in my house and body, and find the joy that left last year. I want to look forward to getting up again and facing a new day. I just have to remember that my Father is the reason I am here, and He will be by my side."...is my prayer for you also.

Sometimes our plans are not really in our own hands, but in the hands of God.

Wishing you a Happy New Year! May 2011 be a better one for you bringing some peace, joy, love, and inspiration. All the best, Jeanne!

Jeannie, you are an inspiration to so many of us, I think of you all the time and pray you will find that reason this year to get up. That God will keep you strong and safe and bring you a peace. If your ever down my way look me up!
