I can't belive it's the year 2008, time is going by way too fast. Christmas was fun, especially having Sadie, Samantha & Jay staying over on Christmas Eve and watching Sadie open gifts and playing with 'Santa toys'. It was a little sad though, our first holiday without my mom and Jay's beloved mom, Margie.
My mom taught me a lot of things but my daughter Samantha, continues to inspire me. She has me hooked on knitting and also reading again. For a while I lost my concentration while trying to stay with a book but realized the books I picked up were all the same.....murder mysteries. Not that some of them weren't worth reading but I usually gave up. One of the best books I've read in a long time was called 'The Birthing Room', an excellent read. For Christmas I received 2 books from Samantha 'Brother & Sister' by Joanna Trollope and 'Plain Truth' by Jodi Picoult, this one I am half way through and am enjoying every page. What can possibly be better, the love and closeness of family, being creative and able to enjoy a good book.
