December 30, 2011 Listing five wonderful things about the past week will only scratch the surface. It’s been a lovely week full of time, celebration, and family.

Here's my list of favorites for the past week: (I'll be writing about more of this week's favorites next week!)
1. Having two of our four boys home. We missed the rest of the family, but it was great to have our two youngest home. (Christmas Eve was quite the adventure, complete with no power in half the house and no water. Tune in next week for the story! We still had a great time.)
2. Knowing our other two boys were celebrating, too. Our oldest enjoyed Christmas at home with his little family in Kentucky and then took off for his wife’s parents’ home. Our California boy spent several days with his cousin and family a couple of hours away, complete with kids and Santa. Sounded like a great time.
3. Built-in help. I have a project underway, and my husband and youngest son provided expert help tonight. I’m so thankful for their expertise and their willingness to make it happen!
4. New dishes! It’s been quite a while since I got new dishes, and there was a new set for me under the tree this year. I’m so excited! I just love them.
5. A New Year quote:
“For last year’s words belong to last year’s language
And next year’s words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning.” (T.S. Eliot)
I love this forward-looking quote. “To make an end is to make a beginning” – I love that. So, here’s to beginnings!
Have a great week of beginnings and blessings.
