I look at this little baby and feel so blessed to have such a wonderful family. I am blessed with my three sons who have given me beautiful grandchildren and now I am a GREAT Grandmother for the second time!

I started my family at age 15 and I can honestly say I am not sorry. Just look, I am 64 years old and still young enough to enjoy my great grandchildren.
This past year has been a hard one for my husband with his constant illness but looks like he is recovering pretty good. The chest Xray shows improvement and his blood work is excellent now. If I sound doubtful it is because this evil pneumonia keeps coming back. I honestly thought this last time that I would lose him. He was a critically ill man.
It is a horrible lost feeling. So many questions unanswered, so many things left to say. It is a touchy subject to talk about death but this weekend my husband and I had a long talk about this. It is important I feel to know your loved ones wishes and if you have doubts about anything you need to address them while they are alive and not try to guess.
I am talking about silly things I guess but to me it was important. We retired and moved away from our children 6 years ago. I wondered how he would feel if I sold the house he bought for me and moved so I could be closer to our children in my older years.
He is a collector of many things. What would I do with his collections? What would I do with his tools?
These things seem small until you are faced with the reality that you loved one may not be here tomorrow and that is when it hits you.
I am so glad we talked and I urge you to do the same. This advice was given to me by a dear friend that lost her husband when her children were very small.
So for today, I am happy to say that Alan is recovering and will soon be back to his normal self.
We are blessed with a beautiful family and friends that love and support us . Thanks to all for your prayers. Prayer does work.
I am looking forward to a Happy New Year. We plan to go to the Browning Museum in Salt Lake Utah this summer, My husband is a gun nut and Browning is his favorite. I will be planning a trip to meet our new Great Grandson as well as the rest of the family in October.
I have lots of new things planned for my Etsy shop and want to keep up with my blog more often than this past year. I still think blogging is so much more personal that Facebook.
God Bless all of you and thanks again for the prayers.
Happy New Year!
