    Happy New Year my friends!

    • Renee from Idaho says:

      Dear Sue – now that I’ve responded initially, yes, we have plans – staying home with our little doggies and ringing in the New Year to celebrate it as well as our beloved Maggie’s 14th birthday. She is getting older and stiffer, but she may still live a few more years. We can only pray for the best with her to have a healthy last years.

    Happy New Year!

    Happy New Year RV Sue and Blogorinos everywhere!

  4. Dawn in NC says:

    Happy New Year’s. I am going to a 90s themed character party to celebrate. I’m supposed to be a popular volleyball 🏐 player, which I find hysterical. Don’t have any plans for the year except to keep on keeping on.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      A volleyball player? I hope you don’t have to wear shorts and a t-shirt… Brrr! 🙂

      Have fun, Dawn!

    Hi Sue..

  6. Alice SE Fla says:

    Happy New Year !! wishing you and your babies the best year ahead ever. Thank You for the blog, love it all. Plan to hold a terrified JRT (sort of looks like Reggie) tonight and nurse my sweet baby beagle who is not feeling well.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Sending get well wishes to baby beagle and be calm wishes to the JRT. 🙂 Happy New Year, Alice!

      • Alice SE Fla says:

        Thank You. Missy has an enlarged heart and had a spot which they did not determine what it was. So I worry about her. Vet tomorrow. JRT, Prissy took over and barked at all noises last night. No trembling. Glad to see you boys made it through as well.

        • rvsueandcrew says:

          I’d say, try not to worry, but how can you not? Best wishes for good news at the vet tomorrow….

  7. KC says:

    Happy Tomorrow …

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Thank you, KC. You have a great New Year’s Day, too!

      If my admin search function is working properly, I see this is your second comment; your first in 2012! Wow, time flies! Nice to hear from you again…

  8. Carl R Hartup says:

    Happy New Year to all !!!
    Enjoy your blog very much Sue.
    Love the pups

  9. JoanneG from San Rafael says:

    Happy New Year, Sue and crew! My goal for 2019 is to get my knees back into shape for hiking.

  10. Dawn in Michigan says:

    Happy New Year to YOU Sue and crew! I’m thinking (still) about my goals for 2019. Being retired I figure I can take my time and figure this out. It might be February before I decide! 🙂

    Anyway, enjoy the new year, I look forward to reading all about it!

  11. Michelle, Salt Lake City, UT says:

    Happy New Year to Sue crew and all who follow! May 2019 bring many great memories!

  12. Elaine Magliacane says:

    Happy New Year Sue and crew, and all the wonderful blogerinos too. Personally, I want to spend more time in 2019 painting. My husband will be retiring in March, and we’ve planned to begin travel in our 5th Wheel RV with our first long trip to Maggie Valley NC, in July, followed by a trip to South Dakota for the Sturgis Motorcycle rally in August, after that who knows 🙂

  13. Gina says:

    I have plans…… two cats Footz (15 1/2) and Pixel (6) will look at a picture of popcorn and the TV and probably fall asleep about 10PM trying to stay awake until midnight. I’m sure I’ll outlast my fuzzies, but not by much 🙂

    Happy New Year to you and your babies.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Gina,

      Last time you wrote you were thinking about doing some more traveling. Maybe in 2019? Best wishes to you and your “fuzzies.” 🙂

  14. Pauline in Mississippi says:

    Happy New Year my sister Susan and all the blogerinos!
    We will be spending New Year’s Eve at home as usual and will probably be in bed by 10 PM. If tradition hold, we will be awoken at midnight when the neighbors down the road start with their fireworks
    Sending Lots of Love and Big Hugs!!!

    • jazzlover says:

      Pauline, Happy New Year to you and your family. Thank you for being one of your sisters “blogerinos”, it is always good to hear from Sues family members. Maybe you can see the fire works and they will be pretty?

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Pauline! Happy New Year to the entire tribe! Love you!

    • Geri from the FL panhandle says:

      Happy New Year Pauline! 💗

    • Jean in Southaven, says:

      Happy New Year Pauline, I hope you and yours are safe tonight. It is suppose to be bad weather your way tonight.

  15. Becky in NJ says:

    Happy New Year, Sue and Crew! 🎉🎉

    I don’t really make resolutions, or too many long range plans anymore. I guess it would be to get through 2019 without any new health problems for myself and my family…

  16. Judy in east texas says:

    Sue and the boys, Happy New Year to you.
    Thank you for allowing me to travel along and live vicariously through you.
    Stay safe out there my friend, judy

  17. Suzette in Tennessee says:

    I don’t celebrate the new year, but for those who do, I wish you a safe, happy time. I will welcome 2019 while sound asleep….unless the neighbors awaken me with fireworks. Which often happens. It’s all good. This year everything will be so rainsoaked, I won’t fret about them starting fires. Happy New Year, Y’all!

  18. Diann in MT says:

    Happy New Year, Sue and Blogorinos. Very cold and snowy here. Perhaps, the weather will dampen the plans for fireworks all night long. My poor old dog will suffer behind a big chair. We’re taking it easy all day to have the stamina to be awake most of the night. No resolutions.

  19. Pam and Maya in Ajo for the winter! says:

    Happy New Year to Sue, Reggie, Roger and all the blogerinos! Hoping 2019 is filled with health and happiness for all of you!

  20. Cynthia in San Clemente says:

    Happy New Year to you Sue, and to the crew and all the blogerinos. You have all enriched me this year with your comments and kindness. I hope everyone has a safe New Years Eve and a healthy 2019. We are going to stay home with the pups, eat filet mignon, roasted potatoes, and asparagus. Oh, and have a bit of champagne to celebrate our blessings in 2018!

  21. KG Dan, Wapato,WA/Laughlin,NV says:

    Happy New Year, Sue, Reggie & Roger!

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      So good to hear from you! I’m especially happy to see “Laughlin, NV” at the end of your sign-in name. I hope that means you’re enjoying your favorite home for the winter. 🙂

  22. Carlene & Corky in Central New Mexico says:

    Happy New Year to Everyone!!!

    I’ll be with my volunteer family, pot luck and playing cards and other games… we’ve all determined that it will end about 10pm New Mexico time… it’s midnight in NYC… and most of us are too old to stay up the whole time, lol…

    See you all on the blog this next year and Thank You, Sue, for allowing us to follow your life virtually… it is a true joy.

    Carlene & Corky

  23. weather says:

    Your lamp shade is gorgeous, Sue! It looks like a few Craftsman Mission style pieces I’ve seen and admired. A friend of mine a few years ago went into debt furnishing her whole home with artwork and furniture crafted in that style. I trust that you more wisely found your lamp shade at a very affordable price. The artistic piece (mermaids tears made by Geri and Chuck?) hanging in front of your window is just beautiful!

    My plans for the year ahead are to continue thoroughly enjoying the lovely area around me, and all of it’s inhabitants that I have grown fond of, or have yet to meet…
    A young woman recently rented a home near mine, and also opened a small diner nearby. I stopped in the diner to meet her, welcome her to the neighborhood and have dinner on a Friday evening. She is very personable, enthusiastic and hopeful. It would be wonderful to see her dreams for success come true.

    She is engaged to a nice young man that came into the diner after a hard day at work while I was there. With him were other members of both his and her families. It’s so nice to see someone have the warmth and support she is receiving when trying something new and difficult. Before coming here she lived in a city where she had friends, a job with an steady income she could count on, familiar surroundings and acquaintances – in other words, she had a secure and relatively risk free life.

    My 2019 New Year’s wish for that young lady, and for you, Sue, and for all the blogorinos, is that we reach for our dreams, big or small, and see them come true.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, weather… To answer your questions . . .

      The lamp shade (which I love) came with the tall, wooden lamp. The whole shebang was $8, if I remember correctly. Yes, those are mermaid tears. Geri and Chuck sent them to me a while ago. They had intended for me to receive them in mid-Oct. for my birthday, but the hurricane interrupted that plan. As soon as they returned to their home, they finished it and mailed it to me. It’s one of my most cherished possessions.

      I want to show the detail on the Mermaid Tears but I haven’t been able to get a good photo, what with it being back-lit. It has little mermaids on it and pretty crystal beads, along with broken pieces of tumbled glass like you’d find washed up on the shore. It all hangs from a piece of driftwood strung onto curly wire. Very pretty substitute for a curtain! I put the mermaid tears directly in my view across the room from my wicker recliner. 🙂

      I so enjoyed reading about the young woman and her diner dream. I join you in wishing her success with her dream and the same to you, as well.

      • Geri from the FL panhandle says:

        Chuck and I are so proud that you like the Mermaid Tears!💗 They look good in that window!
        HAPPY AND HEALTHY 2019 TO YOU SUE and same wishes for ALL you BLOGERINOS!
        Tomorrow is also our 9th anniversary!

  24. AZ Jim says:

    Happy New Year Missy and boys…My news is not good so I’ll keep it short. I have been kinda laid up but my Detta fell and after a short hospital visit she is home. She has a fracture in her lower spine. I am caring for her. I’ll write more later. Hugs..Jim

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Aww, geez, Jim. I am so sorry. I hate that this happened!

      I imagine that injury is very painful for Detta and for you, also, knowing how much you love her and want to protect her. Get better soon, Detta.

      Thanks for keeping in touch. Hugs to both of you.

      • Barbara (Nashville) says:

        So sorry to hear that Jim. Blessings and best wishes for a better New Year for you and Detta.

      • Geri from the FL panhandle says:

        Jim, sending up prayers that Detta will heal quickly and that your love will heal and help you both. 💗🙏

    • Deena in Phoenix says:

      Sorry to hear about Detta…prayers to you both…wishes for a better 2019 AZ Jim and Detta!

    • weather says:

      Oh, Jim, I’m so sorry that happened! Sending love, hugs, prayers and hopes for both you and Detta to feel well soon.

    • Denise - Richmond VA says:

      Hi, Jim,

      So sorry that Detta fell. Sending you both warm, healing thoughts. You both are always in my prayers. **hugs**

    • Elizabeth says:

      Oh so sorry Jim and Detta…praying for healing and for Detta’s pain to be controlled and you to have the strength needed to help her!!

    • jazzlover says:

      Dear Jim, I too am sorry for Detta’s fall and resulting pain during recovery. Hope you have folks around to help you care for Detta, it makes a big difference. Sending prayers and good thoughts for you both.

    • Cynthia in San Clemente says:

      Jim, I too am sorry to hear that you’ve been laid up and Detta fell. Let’s hope and pray for better health in 2019, shall we? So glad you checked in and said hello!

  25. Linda in Minnesota says:

    We’ll be safely home eating lots of snacky foods. We don’t go out on New Year’s Eve which my cop friend calls amateur night. Also, the last resolution I made was to make no more New Year’s resolutions. It’s the only one I ever kept so no more yearly failures for me. I hope you all all have a wonderful year in 2019.

  26. Linda Hughes- NC says:

    Happy New Year RV Sue, Reggie & Roger! We plan to continue traveling, and reading your blog! Trusting in God and loving each day!

  27. Wendy C- Bribie Island says:

    Happy New Year everyone. My year ahead is being there for Mum and dad both of their memories are getting worse, so a very uncertain year ahead.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Wendy!

      You are a good daughter. My prayer for you is a steady supply of whatever you may need to help your parents through 2019 while staying strong yourself. Take care.

  28. Peggy says:

    Happy New Year Sue and crew…and everyone here! We’ll burn the midnight oil until about 9pm and see the new year in the morning!

  29. Ann M says:

    Happy New year to you, Sue, the pups, and all the Blogorinos! I have been having some health issues so we will celebrate quietly at home as usual, but I am looking forward to starting a new year. Here’s to a healthful, wonderful new year in 2019 for all of us!

  30. Ruthie in Fontana says:

    Wishing everyone a Happy New Year, with good health and the ability to travel when the urge hits. Thank you Sue for the outlet to keep in touch with everyone. My plans for the New Year are like Jello, hard to nail down.

  31. Kellee says:

    Happy new year Sue,Reggie and Roger! Thank you for another year of your blog – I look forward to it and keeps me plugging towards retirement.

  32. Suzicruzi says:

    Happy New Year Sue, and blogerinos! May you all find joy in unexpected places.

    Today while driving through Ajo to load up on water, and visit the library to place an Amazon order, I spotted a little non-descript place called, “The Farmers Market”. It didn’t even look open, but I spied a light on inside, and it looked interesting, so I asked Larry to stop a second. I ran in, and sure enough they were open, and had a tiny casual cafe inside. I spied “Black Eyed Pea Soup” on the blackboard, so I ran out and grabbed Larry to come inside with me for soup. I got a sideways glance, ha ha.

    Now at the library, we are both warmed up, and feeling quite lucky- of course beans (peas) will do that to ya I understand. We are not Southern, but I couldn’t resist a dose of a lucky soup on New Years Eve.

    The sky is black-black and I feel heaven is about to bust loose on us once again this week! It’s also windy as all get out back at camp. The wind rattled my brains all night long. I kept wondering if our chairs would blow away- or our mat. No way was I going out there though, so I just prayed all would be okay. And it was; all was well when we peeked out this morning between gusts! We made lots of coffee and kept our little stove going this morning for warmth. 🔥☕️

    I am bringing in the New Year with Gratitude this year. It seems to be the unexpected, little things that bring me the most joy. A warm bowl of black eyed peas in the most unexpected place this afternoon, warmed my heart as well as my tummy. It reminds me of a very good quote passed on to me by my dear friend;
    “Show up, pay attention, tell the truth, let go of expectation”.

    Blessings all-
    Suzi, Kitty, and Larry.

  33. Gingerita says:

    Happy New Year’s everyone!!! Love the mermaid tears ! I plan to bring the New Year in at home with snacks and pork and sauerkraut tomorrow. I look forward to another year of wonderful RVSue blog posts:)

  34. Suzicruzi says:

    Oh”Ugh”, I misquoted the above. Darn. It should read, “Show up, pay attention, tell the truth, let go of outcome”. But as I look back, letting go of expectation works well in many cases also.

    Also, that fast- the Heavens have unloaded!! It will be a sloppy road back to camp!


  35. Cinandjules 🌵 says:

    RVSue, Reg, Rog, PTV, BLT, Stick house and my fellow blogorinos,

    Wishing everyone a Happy and healthy New Year.
    Life is great but it has been a bit hectic lately……thankfully 2018 ends shortly.

  36. Barbara (Nashville) says:

    Having Nacho night tonight with champagne later. Will probably be in bet by 10:00 or 11:00. Having lucky pork roast with black-eyed peas tomorrow. It all goes in the crock pot, so easy.

    Happy New Year to you Sue , Reggie & Roger and to all the blogorinos.

    I love the Mermaid tears. Geri should sell them on-line.

    • Geri from the FL panhandle says:

      Barbara, we have thought about online sales but we realized we have enough shops here, locally, where we sell them and the Farmers Market! We can barely keep up as it is! So we are blessed and happy!💗

  37. FloridaScott In Ajo Arizona! says:

    Happy New Year Sue, Reggie, Roger & All the Blogorinos!

    It has been a treat to follow your adventures, travels, trials and tribulations. You have taught us so much, given us so many tips and ideas over all these years.You have entertained us, inspired us, made us laugh out loud, made us cry, and brought the wonder of your adventures to life!

    So, Thank You Sue! for sharing your life adventures with us!
    May 2019 Be Your Best Year Yet!


    • rvsueandcrew says:

      You’re welcome, Scott! I’m sorta’ living through you now, following your travels… Thanks for that wish for 2019! 🙂

  38. Jan NH says:

    Wishing a Happy, Healthy and Peaceful New Year to all!

    2019….planning to spend lots of time enjoying my boys (once they get home), spending more volunteer hours at the shelter and continue with getting my health back to 100%.

    Happy New Year from Jan, Jeff and Jack!

  39. Deena in Phoenix says:

    Happy New Year RVSue, Reggie, Roger and blogorinos.

    I don’t do resolutions but I will be looking forward to 2019 to enjoy my family and will keep on my pathway to someday hiking Piestewa Peak with my nephews (hopefully 12/31/19-their goal for me). Black susans have been soaking all day getting ready for their debut as the Family’s quest for good luck in the new year…Most of family are gathering tomorrow for a day of football snacking…the rest of us will be in the game room playing games about history (my genealogist brother has made a game of our family history events with dates to teach the younger and help the elder to remember…it is a lot of fun; the trial run was at Thanksgiving with such joy had by all to learn naughty/nice, trials/tribulations and character/disgrace of our history through the ages…looking forward to a wonderful and educational day.

    Take Care my virtual Friend and Crew

  40. Have a Pleasant and Safe Happy New Year to you and all the Bloggers,,,,,,,,,

    • No need to reply, setting here my left leg go’s to sleep so bad it hurts, so I’m having trouble with the site to sign up, don’t worry, I’ll manage some how, but now I need to be with my Lady and I’m not talking about Piper,,, see ya all later,,,,,,
      R nP n D,,,,,,

      • Geri from the FL panhandle says:

        I am going to reply because I am happy to see you Rusty! Happy & Healthy New Year Rusty!

        • Hi Geri, Piper is hiding in her favorite spot, the shower where her bed is, a nebour is shooting off fireworks like it’s 1999, he does it every time it’s a holiday and every one else is answering back as the norm goes, so we’re prepared for the rest of the night, I’m eating stuffed bell peppers and rice that my Lady has prepared for dinner and boy dose it hit my spot, so I can take care of her spots which I enjoy doing, she’s a great cook and I’m getting a little heavier, last time I wiaghd whiaghd, dam spell checking, in was at 228 and I feel a little heavier, can’t see below my belly, starting to feel like Santa, LOl,,,,,,,,

      • Jean in Southaven, says:

        So good to see you here again. You have been on my mind wondering how you are doing. Looks like you are doing very well. So glad you have found someone. Hope your new year is special.

    • weather says:

      Hi, Rusty, it’s nice to see you checking in here. Wishing you a Happy New Year!

    • Cynthia in San Clemente says:

      Hi Rusty,
      So happy to see you here and know that you and Piper are doing well. Glad too that you have some Lady company. Hope you have a healthy 2019!

  41. Jean in Southaven, says:

    Happy New Year, Sue and crew. Happy belated Christmas too. I have gone back to work part-time so not as much time to read, but I catch up at least once a week. Love your finds at the thrift shops. We go to thrift shops too, but we don’t have as much good stuff as you do I guess. Hug the boys for me.

  42. Don in Alaska says:

    New Years is a non-event for me. We stay home and hope errant fireworks don’t set the roof on fire….

    Sleep is out until about 1Am or so. The fireworks are so intense they sound like a bad day at Khe Sanh. And fireworks are illegal in the Muni…

    On a brighter note – Happy New Years to all!

  43. Alex says:

    Happy New Year to you and the crew, and all you fellow blogorinos out there!

  44. Terri in Tx., for now says:

    Happy New Year to All! Good to hear from Rusty! Glad to get a look at the Mermaids Tears, too! Good thoughts to AZ Jim and Detta-I hope you both have a good recovery. Am feeling optimistic about the New Year. Been feeling a bit anxious cause our house hasn’t sold yet, but we know it will take someone special to want to live way out in the middle of nowhere, the way we do. I quote the Serenity prayer every day. Makes me feel better! I hope everyone has a great New Year and, as always, a special Happy New Year to RV Sue, Roger, and Reggie!

  45. Geri from the FL panhandle says:

    Oooops! Took awhile for the original to show up under Rustys post, so I wrote another one. It ended up down here! See if you can wave your magic wand Sue and make this one disappear!

  46. george from nc says:

    Happy new years Sue&crew,
    As for plans for the new year, I don’t even buy green bananas any more

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, george! Happy New Year to you, too! I’m smiling, seeing you appear here again. Glad to know you’re still a blogorino. 🙂

  47. Paula in Indiana says:

    Blessings and a Happy New Year to you Sue, Reggie, Roger and all the Blogorinos!

  48. Denise - Richmond VA says:

    Hi, Sue!

    It is officially 2019 here on the East coast! Sending Happy New Year wishes to you and all of your blogorinos! Thank you for sharing your life, gorgeous pictures, your sweet boys, and for taking the time to create your blog. We appreciate you letting us tag along! 🙂

    May everyone be blessed to have what they need. May all be granted health, healing, happiness, and contentment in the coming year! 🙂

    Sending you, Reggie, and Roger lots of love and hugs from me and Gracie pup! Love ya, Sue! 🙂

    Thankfully, it is raining here – no fireworks tonight. 🙂

  49. CherylinTheLowerThumbofMI says:

    Happy New Year! Dear Sue, Reggie, & Roger; those Mermaid Tears are gorgeous!! Would love to find/or make something like that. My New Year’s Eve plans came & went. Obviously, I managed to see the New Year in…only because I took a nap in the afternoon!! Watched the Ball drop @ Times Square, then checked in with you!

    My New Year’s Resolution is somewhat bitter/sweet. On Christmas morn @ 4 o’clock, my dear Aunt Wanda died. She was 96 years old. Suffered from kidney Cancer & a weak heart…but kept plugging along. Loved her bunches. A celebration of her life will take place @ our family reunion the end of July, where her cremains will be buried next to her Mother in a quaint small town cemetery. All this to say I wish to live my life with half as much dignity that she portrayed her whole life. Big shoes to fill…but I’m making slow strides to that end. Don’t feel sorry, just mention her in sweet meditation, when you can…this goes for all the wonderful Blogarinos that read this through. No maudlin(?) thoughts just a great life lived well.

    Sorry about droning on, just had that on my heart to share.

    Enough sad stuff let 2019 begin!

  50. Elizabeth says:

    Looking forward to a better year 2019 and wishing all the same for the Blogerinos!!
    (And still hoping we can perhaps find a place where we can once again have a sweet doggie!!)

  51. Krystina says:

    Happy New Year Sue, crew and Bloggerinos! I know I do not reply very much these days but I am still with you RVSue! LOVE your home and REALLY love all your finds at the thrift stores. I was in bed at 8:30 last night…as usual. Can’t remember the last time I made a New Year’s resolution.

    My two Grandchildren, Nora and Gianna are the light of my life. My heart stops every time I walk in the door and they come running and throw themselves in my arms. People have always said that your Grandchildren are another ball game altogether…..the absolute truth!!

    I have joined an organization called Restorative Justice here in Vermont. We meet with folks newly released from prison once a week for a year…as a support team to help them re-enter the community. Great organization.

    Sending up prayers to you RVSue and all the Bloggerinos. Have a great New Year All!

  52. Eileen says:

    I usually don’t set goals for the new year, and I have no major plans; but, at this stage of my senior life, I hope to stay healthy and mobile enough to be able to continue taking of my two rescued 14-year-old tabby cat brothers so that neither of them has to ever return to the shelter.

  53. Eileen says:

    P.S. HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE. (Would be nice if my memory improved in year 2019; but, unfortunately, that just ain’t gonna happen!…lol…)

  54. Chas in PA says:

    Happy New Year to all.Waiting to snowbird.Can’t leave until feruary 14th due to family obligations but we will be headed to AZ and Texas and will open up the cabin May 1 for the summer where we will park the RV as a guest house.

  55. Betty Shea-Tuscon says:

    Wishing you all the very best in 2019!!So happy you and the Crew are loving your homebase!

  56. S Kaeseman says:

    Happy New Year, Sue, Reggie and Roger. May God Bless and keep you and yours safe this entire year. Thanks for a Great, Smile and Happiness providing website.

  57. rvsueandcrew says:

    Such a wonderful ending of the year 2018!

    A pleasure to hear from y’all! I didn’t get to reply to everyone, but know that I appreciate the warmth you sent out to your fellow blogorinos, to the crew, and to me.

    New post coming up soon!

  58. ApplegirlNY says:

    Update on my son and the power of prayer.

    Thank you everyone for your commitment and willingness to pray for my son and our family during this current crisis. Prayers have been answered and we are grateful. For those of you who, like me, believe in the power of intercessory prayer, I want to encourage you that it does make a difference – not only in the physical healing aspects, but also for the peace that it brings to those who are recipients of your heartfelt requests.

    My son is now on only oral pain killers. He is averaging a “3” – you know, on a scale of 1-10. That is a huge deal. They are hoping to send him home with a portable wound vac device within a couple of days, if his pain remains manageable. After that they will begin to schedule skin grafts along with various other surgeries, as they reconstruct what is left of his hand. He is amazingly positive (thanks to your prayers). The medical team is very pleased as well.

    We know we have difficult times ahead due to the scope of the injury, and the amount of time it will take to repair, but we are encouraged, and grateful.

    Thank you, from the bottom of my heart. You have been faithful, and He has been faithful. Please continue to remember my son in your prayers as you have the opportunity. It does matter.

    Have a wonderful and blessed New Year.

    Happy New Year Blogos, Sue, Reg, and Rog!

    Life is Good!

    For the new year? I hope I can watch out for those ‘expectations’ that cause anxiety! Being aware is my first step-everything from ‘picking the fastest line at the store’ to ‘can I get my lunch order filled and back to work in time?’.

    And, a great thing about this blog (as mentioned by CherylinintheLowerThumbMI) is I can check in to see what’s up any time I want to!! Even if the hour is odd!

    Thank you Sue and Crew for that!
