A SIMPLE TABLE
Country plates, gingham napkins, copper accents, ready for a traditional meal of Black-eyed Peas, Greens, and Cornbread.
Do you serve this meal on New Years Day? From childhood, I was told having this meal on New Years Day just might insure the year will be a good one.
All in all, we had an excellent year in 2012.
In spite of a couple of small bumps in the road, we did very well.
THE NEW YEAR
We take each day as it arrives.
As I noted, we had a few challenges in 2012, but no more than most years and not as many as some years we’ve passed.
This is the year I greet 70 years. Classmates, from LHS, 1961, plan to meet in June to celebrate this milestone in our lives.
I was a “war baby”. My parents met during WWII and were married at Fort Leonard Wood (MO) not long before my father left for the Pacific.
Perhaps I will look through albums for baby photos of Back Porch Musings Pat, known in her early years as Patty Ann.
Granddaughter Xanti’s fiancé will be ordained this month. Xanti will become a pastor’s wife in March.
Yes, there will be projects. I have an idea for the first project. We will see how that progresses.
We welcome 2013, continuing to count our blessings.
Thank you for your visits over Christmas. I had a look at the “numbers”. What an amazing group of much appreciated loyal visitors!
