Happy Birthday Mom! I wish I could be with you today to celebrate. Mom, I love you and admire the hard worker you are. You have been such a giver my whole life and I love you and appreciate that about you. Hope you have a great day.

I have LOVED Christmas break. I was able to spend a good amount of time with Kelli and the girls. I really enjoyed it. Ivy is getting so big and I have LOVED snuggling with Lucy. They are so fun and I am thankful to have family so close. I also got to relax, spend time with good friends, work out EVERY DAY, get organized, and clean mi casa. I spent time re-doing my spare room which has been long overdue since it's been empty for over a year.  My good friend Jen helped me make pillows for the bed so I've included some pictures of the room. I'm just looking for a bedside table and a couple things for the wall and it will be complete. I'm so thankful that I get to work for a place that gives me two weeks off! What a blessing. Mom, I missed you!
I can't believe 2011 is here! I have been thinking a lot about the things I have to be thankful for. One thing that I have been so thankful to the Lord for is the gift of JOY. 2010 was a hard year yet the Lord consistently has given me the gift of joy even in sad times. I pray that no matter what happens in my life whether good or sad that I will be able to Rejoice Always, Pray without Ceasing and in EVERYTHING give thanks. That's my prayer for all of us as we enter 2011. (Do you hear me my Sistas?!?!)
