Blessings Abound-- Happy New Year

Dear Readers,

I hope this New Year's Day finds you well.  I love fresh starts--new weeks, new years, new planners...I don't know what it is about them, but a fresh start always seems motivating.

Last night our family stayed up and did some puzzles together after Bible study.  (We also ate homemade cookies, of course, which is a family tradition of ours over the holidays).  We've taken three weeks off from school, for which I had so many plans of playing catch up!  But, alas, it was not to be, as we all came down with the flu.  It was a bad one, but not as bad as it could have been.  I'm very thankful that over the past several years I've been learning homeopathy which has enabled me to provide a means of health and healing to my family in many areas--including the effects of the flu!

 We're all back to health now, thankfully, and tomorrow we will go back to our studies.  Today I have so much I want to get done because school days don't allow for much time to do much else.  I'll plan school for the upcoming week, as well as hopefully take advantage of our warranty for our vacuum, which has stopped working.  We very much need a working vacuum!

 This morning, with a late start for everyone due to staying up late, I am grateful for the beautiful sound of two of my daughters playing Christmas songs together--one on piano and one on violin.  It's just lovely that they all want to go on celebrating Jesus' coming down to earth for us.

I hope you all are doing well and have a blessed new year 💜
