It is really hard to believe that this is the last week of 2009!! Already!! How did this happen so quickly!!?? Time is just flying by!! This is the week that if you stop long enough you wonder what the coming year is going to bring your way. What will life be like in 2010? How will my life change? What has God got in store for me? I wonder!!

I am so glad that we do not know what lies ahead as the majority of us would probably freak out if we really knew. I don't want to know for sure. Just do like the bible says and go one day at a time. In some cases even one hour or one minute at a time works best!!

I have been thinking back about this year and know that it has been a difficult year mostly for us financially. For others in our family, it has been a very bad year for losing their family members. We all have different crisis in our families. Ours was just mostly in the area of trusting God to provide for us monetarily.

This past year was our 45th year together and God willing in January we will have our 46th wedding anniversary!! We are getting old together and to me that is the "ONLY" way!! We have went through a lot together this year and are still hanging in there once again together!!

We went through no jobs from the beginning of the year into May. I had to have my right knee operated on. It is still not right even with the operation. We picked up my parents and kept them here for a couple of months. We did all kinds of things that they had not done. Mother had her first massage!! She loved it!! We took them home and then came home to more work and trying to hold things together.

Our home has been on the market for some time now but it is not selling and we know that God has other plans for us now.

Two weeks ago, as you know, I had a big fall down all of our 14 steps and now am reaping the pain from that. I know that there is a reason for everything and maybe even this too.

After 5 years of being gone, we found our cat Sammy and now he is living here in our garage and seems to be doing great!! Mike is just in love with this big boy cat of ours. He is huge!! We have not figured out yet how to get him inside because of our little Annie. We are afraid for her. We do not want to upset her wonderful kind personality!! So for now Sam is in our garage!!

Mike has been blessed with a new job that will begin about the 11th of this next month. Till then somehow we have to hang on and pray that all the bills get paid!! So far so good!! We know that God is so good to us!!

I have not been a good blogger in 2009 and have lost a lot of blogging friends but I guess we cannot keep doing what we like all of the time and other things just get in your way...Like say : LIFE!! I think that is what has been going on here with me. I still keep in touch with most of you out there and really do appreciate knowing all about your lives.

Now as we are about to enter a new year I want to let you all know that I am blessed to have had you as friends!! Friends have always been very important to me and I feel that they will be just as important in the coming new year!!

I do wonder about 2010. I know that my Dad is not well and keeps getting so mixed up. My mother is having a time trying to maintain her sanity with this. They will be married 66 years this coming January!! What a message to marriage these days!! No one can seem to stay married but there are those of us that still manage too.

I want to wish ya'll a Happy 2010!! May it bring only good things your way!! Love you all!!

Yes... that faith in God goes a LONG way to keeping marriages together! You and Mike have had a rough year this past year. I hope God has GOOD things in mind for you in 2010!

What is Mike's new job? That is exciting!

I dare not look ahead, but know that He will let me face each day with His help.

I have had a hard time knowing that the year of 2009 went so fast. I am taking the time to reflect and just doing nothing. Have a wonderful Happy New Years.

Love and Hugs,
Joyce

We will be fine, as i told your Dad we made it through WWII and that was really very rough, so we can make it through this troubled time we are having now. Love can conquer all and you know that. 66 years together is quite an accomplishment and we intend to see it through. Love you and glad you ar better and Mike is going to have a good job. Love you. Mother & Dad

You've had a pretty tough year, Sandy and I hope that 2010 is a lot easier for you.

Happy New Year to you and Mike and I look forward to blogging with you in 2010.

Dear Sandy.....

I was so pleased to receive your comment when I checked my computer this morning. However, I am so sorry to hear about your fall, a fall like that is bad enough for anyone, but for you with your MRS problems, it must be considerably worse. John and I wish you a speedy recovery.

We are so pleased to hear that Mike will be starting a new job very soon.... we wish him well.

What a heart felt post you have written dear Sandy.... we pray that the year ahead is enriched with many blessings for you and Mike and that your Mum & Dad be given better health and strength to cope with all the challenges they encounter. I still look fondly at the pretty dishcloth Mum knitted for me....I keep it hanging up.... it's to nice to use!

We have been in Switzerland for Christmas and New Year.... we return to Wales tomorrow.... God willing we have safe travel. The weather back home has been quite severe with heavy snow falls, we just caught the beginning of it as we left for the airport on 19 December. I guess you are enjoying the wonderful mild climate you are blessed with in Savannah.

I have been a very poor blogger during 2009.... as you probably noticed when you visited..... I am so looking forward to catching up with everyone again in 2910.

Happy New Year Dear Sandy & Mike. Fondest Love - Marion & John xx

Norma said...

Happy New Year, and may the blogs just flow! Hope the healing from the fall is quick.

Maggie Ann said...

Happy New Year to you Sandy! I'm sorry to read about your fall on the stairs..... This year has flown by! My hubby has the flu...I need to go heat up some supper for him. *hugs* I enjoyed your post!

There are so many in the blog now it is hard to keep up.. but I love the ones that I have had for over a year now and you are one of those.......... Sending hugs for 2010.....

Betty said...

Sandi,
After visiting with Marion and seeing your comment about your fall I wanted to come over and wish you a speedy recovery. I am so sorry to hear about your accident.

Wishing you a blessed 2010....Betty

PEA said...

Happy New Year to you and yours, dear Sandy! I have slowly been making my way to everyone's blogs:-) As you say, life tends to take over at times and there is just no time for the computer.

I know it was a very hard year for you in 2009 and that's why I'm so proud of you and Mike for getting through it together and knowing that it's all in God's plan:-) Let's just hope and pray that 2010 is a much better year for you, though! lol

I can imagine how worried you are about your dad and it can't be easy for your mother as well. My mom goes in for her cataract surgery in a couple of weeks and I'll be taking care of her...not sure yet if she'll be coming over here to stay or if I'll be staying at her place. She has no internet so I'll go crazy! hehe

Wishing you the very best dear friend. xoxox

Linda said...

Most of 2009 was a blur for me. I'm starting the New Year as new beginnings...

Sorry to hear about your fall. Hope you are doing better.

My mission is to return to blogging and keep up with all the news.

Reflection Through The Seasons said...

Hello Dear Sandy......

I see that you haven’t posted for three weeks.... I hope that this is no indication that you are still suffering. You are in my prayers for a speedy recovery. Sending Hugs and Blessings - Marion xx

I hope things are going well for you in this first month of 2010-- Have a great weekend!

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I make money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my web site to get additional info.

Hi!
You may probably be very interested to know how one can make real money on investments.
There is no need to invest much at first.
You may begin to get income with a sum that usually is spent
for daily food, that's 20-100 dollars.
I have been participating in one project for several years,
and I'll be glad to share my secrets at my blog.

Please visit my pages and send me private message to get the info.

P.S. I make 1000-2000 per daily now.

You can purchase these jerseys at any time The reason is because there is a concentration of profit for those who are selling these items as opposed to quality
