A Joyful New Year

On January 1, 2011 our family welcomed another member with the birth of little Izabel Juliet.  She weighed 7 pounds and 11 ounces.  She has lots of black hair and looks exactly like her brother did when he was born.

It was an exciting thing to be able to hold her when she was only a day old.

I am so thankful that God has given another precious gift to our family that we can rejoice in.

As we enjoy Izabel and the other great nieces and nephews, we also look forward to the next little one who is due in June.

Thank you God for Cole, Sara, Elijah, Izabel, Jaden, Lauren, and Joseph.  They are such a blessing to our family.

Old Age

Do you feel old as the new year begins?  Don't think of yourself as being old?  Think of yourself as being "chronologically challenged"?

Being "....challenged" seems to be the norm these days instead of being called "handicapped".

So enjoy your challenge in a positive way and make the most of it.  Don't let it be a negative thing that drags you down.
