Joy that Lasts


What a wonderful week we had
with much togetherness
my heart overflows
with joy that
lasts and
lasts.

I wish you all a wonderful
New Year
filled with Joy and Grace.

Adorable wreath! It looks like your Christmastime was filled with cozy warmth and fun family moments!

Beautiful Nativity, and words to go with it in your last post too.

Happy New Year to you and your family, sweet Maria!

Oh Maria,

Being back at school is HARD! Yes,my kids came in dragging, but it did not take long for them to SQUIRM AND SHOUT AND BLURT OUT and well, you know the rest of the story!!!

SOOOOO GOOD TO SEE YOU DEAREST! Yes, me too; we are back to our routine of coming home, eating dinner and then crashing on the couch!!!

I am on the run at the moment; I have to go interview TWO NEW potential students that will be in MY ROOM! That will make 52 students. GIVE ME A BREAK????

Oh well, God help us to be our best.

I send you greetings of love and friendship my dearest!! Anita

Your picture makes me smile, Maria. These warm comfort slippers must really really fit like a glove. Makes me want to snuggle up!

Enjoy your Thursday! Much love xoxoxoxoxo
