One of my absolute favorite things to do when I was little was to read. I started at an early age and would devour any book my mom would give me. It was a wonderful escape for me and unfortunately as I have gotten older and busier my days of reading for pleasure have gone by wayside. In an effort to get the house organized for 2012 I came across an old book of Tony's and realized it was perfect for me. I also just received a book in mail from my MIL that was passed out in her church and it is written by a convert that I followed back when I converted to Catholicism. Tony and I are going to read it together chapter by chapter as our devotional time in the evening. Even though I feel lousy today I am excited to get a jumpstart on reading.

Positive Thoughts

Good Morning 2012!
The slumber party lasted well past midnight but everyone had a good time! Since one of my new resolutions is to focus on positive and avoid all negative I am going to delicately explain my night. This is first year I stayed up way into early morning. Seems a little head cold sprang upon me and I couldn't sleep. When I finally woke up I noticed Tony must have wanted me to try out my new pretty dish gloves as the girls had left egg nog filled cups all over the house and party food on countertops. I hope all that moving around helped my snuffy nose as it sent me into a coughing fit which woke up the sleeping beauties. No bother as we have a 10:30 mass to make! Maybe focusing on the positive will be easier in 2012, but just in case I have a back up plan! How can you not look at this face and not smile?!?
