Nothing like the morning sun shining through the windows on a New Year to expose the dust bunnys that were born in 2008 and still remain. I'd love to say that I had a hard time letting them go, but they are a reminder of the cleaning I did not get done for the holidays. And as Isaac pointed them out to me I told him, "yeah, look at them. I am okay with them". And with his cute smile he looked at me and said" yeah gramma, we are okay with them!" And our new year started with a humble acceptance of all things not perfect:) I do plan to get rid of them this year, but without the urgency that made me procrastinate last year! It will be a treat to me when I indulge on it.
No resolutions this year to speak of. I just want to be more honest with myself and my walk, and continue to be a blessing to others if I can be. I want to be more ernest in my prayers, and honest with my heart. When I say I pray for others, it is not in a closet on bended knees, candles burning and silence. I pray (talk to the Lord) all day long as I do what I do. He is always listening and I am always chatting with Him in my mind and heart. He is quicker than the internet:) And I know He hears me. And I hear Him. We have an "Open Line" to eachother at all times and I love that. It keeps my mind from wandering to the things that might otherwise distract and "iritate me":) (USUALLY) I am working on me all the time. I don't have a religion, I have a RELATIONSHIP with the ONE who loves me unconditionally. I have no secrets with the Lord, He knows me inside and out. I am not the "Church Lady," (SNL) but I am Laurie in Ca. And He holds me accountable to myself, and to my family and to you. I just want to be the best "me" that I can be with His help. That's it!! And I want to be a blessing to you and others who find their way here.
Oh yeah, and learn how to post pictures here so I can share my crazy life of collecting and grandkiddos and animals and all things me. You all post such great pictures and I want to be able to do the same. I am not keeping it a secret here, I just don't know how to do it yet. I am amazed I got a blog up and running (by accident and fooling around), and with a bit of loving pushes from my friends.:) Any and all advice is welcome here in this department. The quicker I learn, the sooner you will see.
