Happy New Year, 2015!

 Happy New Year....may 2015 be more peaceful than last year.  Sometimes it feels like a losing battle (thinking of the grand scheme of things), but Never underestimate the power you wield in your everyday life.  I can make it more peaceful in my corner of the world! I CAN effect change. =) Hug more, argue less! Smile more, frown less!
A song for you: Peace Train

Some highlights of my year:
1. I have 2 best friends.
2. Mom and I got to go on a 5300 mile LONG car trip "out West"...lots of fun!
3. I started a new blog  "Pearls in the Kitchen?
4. Sewed my own swimsuit for the first time ever...(and one for Mom)...that was exciting. (Thanks for the help Mom & Brittany)
5.  We started the "10:24 Society" last January. Ladies meeting together after the manner of  Hebrews 10:24. (we are on Facebook)
6. Grandma Hale peacefully passed from this earth in her own home. I hope that will be said of me someday.  It was an honor and blessing to serve her.  (her post)

Wishes for 2015:
~Be bolder and braver
~Be a better and more caring friend
~Learn to be a better housekeeper
~Spend more time with my little friends
~No more "melt downs"
~Figure out how to make my creativity supply my "pin" money


An update on my wishes for 2014:   (my end of the year answers are in bold)

(not numbered, because I don’t think that I could do it justice)
~Get completely moved in  (NOPE- try again in 2015)
~Make a snowman (Not enough snow- try again in 2015!)
~Make time for sewing/creative fun every week (Well...not really...try again in 2015)
~Have one get together/party every month (Yes~ we started the "Hebrews 10:24 Society" last January! We had a lot of fun as a group, and besides those get-togethers we had lots of other parties!)
~Learn to drive  (Well, no....sigh...what vitamin does one take for bravery? I need some. )
.....if I write these down will they be more likely to happen?
