Finishing up the old year...Edited

Can you believe that 2011 is almost history?  Time does fly by faster and faster each year!  Seems like only yesterday that my own kids were babies and now they are grown and having babies of their own! 

2011 was a good year for my family with the birth of two new grand-daughters!  My family still mourns the loss of my youngest daughter who died tragically in 2010 and these two new additions to the family have been such a blessing. The babies are a reminder that God gives us joy even in the midst of sorrow.  The babies have given my family hope for the future and they have given me the ability to find the joy in life to keep going even when I am in the depths of grief.  All blessings really do come from God and are given to show his love for us!  God is good!

I wish you all a Blessed New Year...May 2012 be a year of happiness, good health, much love and the making of wonderful memories!

Nancy,

I had no idea that you had lost a daughter. I cannot imagine your grief. How wonderful that you have been able to add two little ones to your family. They are visible signs that life does indeed go on.
