Time does not stop

How can two weeks go by so quickly?

Not only did time not stop, it flew.

Even though we were just getting ready for Christmas (just washing the Thanksgiving dishes it seems like), now we are preparing to welcome in the new year on the road, to reflect and celebrate together.  The new year! 




We will lift glasses of bubbly, play killer speed scrabble, hopefully get to play in some snow, and enjoy the time we have together. 

And while some are watching the Rose Parade and every possible bowl game on New Years Day, I will go further north to take Madelaine back to school.

Goodbyes are not getting any easier, but maybe time will move as quickly this quarter as it did during these precious two weeks together?  I can only hope and pray.

But tonight we celebrate, laugh, give thanks, and celebrate some more.

Happy New Year to you!

I'd recognize those glasses of bubbly anywhere, and the beautiful time together!

Will I see you tonight? Hope, hope?
Either way, all my love and best wishes for the most blessed year to come. Happy New Year!

Traveling Mercies, Di! God be with you. Come home safe and sound.

Loved the "Friday Clive." A minister friend once said, "I still have trouble wrapping my mind around the fact that God in all his power and glory was willing to become human like us." That is Love!

Happy New Year! jep

I hope your trip back was a blessed one. Will I see you tomorrow night? (She asks with a hopeful tone...)

:) Love you!
