The following are words I want to commit to in the coming year...
It's so simple really, but I do have to remind myself to be be joyful, to be thankful, and to keep on praying ~ even while admitting that my life is pretty damn rosy any way you look at it. But my focus can get muddled. Like right now I'm trying to remember that pregnancy is not forever ~ I will feel good again. And no matter what happens with this pregnancy ~ I am already blessed with three beautiful children that charm me to pieces and make my heart full. But I get frustrated, and I get hormonal, until at last someone sends me into a fit of laughter that shatters my cranky mood and then I remember... Be Joyful. Yes! Be Thankful. Yes! And keep on praying ~ keep Him with you in all that you do. Yes. These are my resolutions for 2012.
To round up my last week of 2011, I'd like to show you the finished tea towel I made for my niece, who is recently married and making a home.
This past week, we also headed down to Legoland for the day. The little ones loved it... 'nuff said. ;)
It's crazy, but all that stuff is built out of teeny tiny Legos!
And lastly, here's an overview of my stitches in 2011. It's not everything, but you get the idea...
