Happy New Year!!!

Happy New Year, everyone!!! I look forward to spending another year with you laughing, being inspired, and being blessed by each one of you.

I have missed all of you! I couldn't believe it when I saw that so many people responded to my last post! Thank you for your sweet comments.

I need to apologize to you all for not blogging the past two weeks. I blogged about my challenge and then disappeared! I really had no intention of doing the disappearing act, but I'm sure you will all understand once I explain.

My husband, two of our children, and I traveled to see our families in Louisiana for the Christmas holidays. We left on the 21st. We stayed at my in-laws home where they have dial up for their Internet service. The only thing is, the phones were out of order. They stayed that way until yesterday (the day we left). The rest of my family have Internet access, but since I haven't seen them since last year I thought it would be rude to be away from them for how ever long it would take me to post. I felt bad about not responding to all of you, but I knew once I explained you all would understand. Let me just say that I will no longer take having high speed Internet and the ability to have Internet access in every room in my house for granted again!

I hope to respond to each of you over the next few days. I still have some unpacking to do, and another Christmas celebration with my daughter and grand children.

Again, thank you for the sweet comments. I don't think I have ever had that many people respond to one post unless it was a giveaway! :)

Take care!
