Universal Gift

I hope everyone who reads this had a wonderful Christmas break. We had a quiet morning by ourselves and then the siblings arrived, bringing with them noise and laughter and fun! What a great day we had...almost made it worth not seeing John and Jill and the grands! ALMOST!

You know how sometimes the Universe gives you a gift...not because it's Christmas, or your birthday, or even Arbor Day. Just because. Well, on Saturday, the Universe gave me just such a gift. I received a phone call from a niece I've not heard from in years. I've known her since she was tiny and lost touch in recent years. She's grown, married, and the mother of 4 children, the newest born just the week before this Christmas. I'll admit it's partially my own fault for not trying harder to keep in touch. I'm a lazy bum about things like that. On Saturday afternoon, my cell phone rang and there she was, my Erica! I surely do miss her. We talked for something like a half hour and got caught up. And yesterday I kept going back to our conversation and smiling all day. Hopefully, I won't be so remiss in keeping in touch.

No pictures today...didn't take a single one during the bad! Maybe that should be my New Years Resolution. No, I recall now that there is only one New Years Resolution I ever made that I kept. And that resolution is: Don't make any more New Years Resolutions. Ever! I'm keeping that one.

Thanks for stopping by.
