HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And what a new year it will be over here. We have been so wrapped up in the holidays and of course the drama.... drama... I never can understand why people can't just grow up and be responsible.
My question that I never seem to get an answer for is why some people live their lives with no consequences. I mean sometime the punishment is very little for the choices that change peoples lives. You know the old saying some people can do what they want and still land on their feet.
This year is like the opening of a new door.

Our lives here in GA are changing so quickly, yet we have to be patient. I pray every night for the patience and the understanding of what we are getting done.
The first in my New Year is the adoption of my nephew. We have had him now for 3 and a 1/2 months and a few weeks when he was 2 months old. He is only 5 1/2 months old. He is doing just great. The kids are great with him. He is the joy of our house. I still have to deal with my brother in law and his girlfriend. I am very easy going and don't see any of it as a problem. Just sometimes, I let the bad thoughts sneak in. I just have to trust that God has a plan.

So please keep us in your prayers that is all goes smoothly.
The next step in our lives will be my new hips. Gotta lose the 40lbs and then he will do the surgery. Wants to see me in May. I don't know if I will make it till then. Every day it seems harder to get around. It is like standing up and having 800 lbs on your legs.. bone to bone.. I guess.. My cross to bear.. but the surgery will be probably around in the summer... Keep that in your prayers too. I will have to lose my income to rehabilitate.. so I gotta watch those pennies...

Another thing is My daughter has been accepted to the West Georgia University....yea.. and it is right near home. She will be living with us and going to school. She wants to stay around to be apart of the babys life. She is so good.
Graduation is in May and hopefully I will be able to hobble to it.. great looking mommy ..huh!!! But we will probably throw a party for her. Then she will take her senior trip to Tampa with her friends.. Holy Moley.. won't I be a wreck...lol

Well I think I have caught everyone up for now. Hope I didn't come off tooo whiney...
But please keep us in your prayers.. Cause God is driving this ship.. and I am not even on board.. I am hanging on with both hands to the red bouy ring...
Thanks and always keep in touch..

HAPPY NEW YEAR.. TO EVERYONE
