A New Year And An Anniversary
I got alot of cupboards cleaned out with our week off. I tackled the grandkids's toy cupboards and got them organized, getting rid of unneeded items. Along with a nice coat of paint, the kitchen cupboards were organized, too. I even tackled the junk drawer!
Our daughter, Christy, is planning on moving, so she returned my hutch I had given her. I didn't realize how I had missed the extra room it gave me as it holds so many of my fancier dishes that aren't used everyday freeing up alot of cupboard space. So, I got that done, too. I am a homemaker at heart and enjoy making my house a home, so it feels so good accomplishing these jobs.
Also, today, is our 21st year here in Boise. The years have flown since our big move from Southern California, arriving here with 7 children and 1 on the way, no job, but alot of faith. God has been so good to us and provided so richly. He led us here and gave us the grace and faith we needed to start over. Our children have prospered and been blessed. So, I reflect every year on this day and thank the Lord for his guidance.
