The end of 2010? .....

I suppose 2010, like the years past, will never entirely end. I don't know about you, but I have some wonderful memories that lift above the "not so wonderful" ones, and I can honestly say, God had a good reason for me to be a part of 2010's ramblings on.

It was an interesting year Politically. A definite turning point for all political parties.

A good year for my family as we watch our daughter and her two Blessings settle into their new home. It is also wonderful to see her prosper and advance in the business world ... especially in light that so many are struggling. One of our sons is doing incredibly well while stationed in San Antonio with his wife and three daughters. The education the ARMY is giving that boy is beyond anyone's wildest dreams (he is finishing up a Computer Forensics degree at present). And our second son graduated in September with his Masters degree in Eastern Medicine. He has two more Medical boards to take and then he can begin practicing .... it's been a long three years for him to reach this point. It is nice to see the "light".

Then for the life of Hubby and me? All of a sudden we are doing really well! For two years the phone hardly rang, and now we are about to direct an abundance of calls to other folks. Hubby is a Master Trim Carpenter. I have set my sights on other avenues as Historical gowns are not selling as well as they have in the past .... and frankly, I admit I am not heart broken about that. 2011 will be a time to venture into new business directions, and I am thrilled with the prospect.

As we all sit here today reminiscing, let us not forget who to give thanks to for all those Blessings, both blatant and in disguise. Indeed we have an Awesome God.
The picture above are fireworks over Independence Rock on the grounds of our National Monument area here in Grand Junction, Colorado. We live in an area rich with beauty as we find ourselves surrounded with amazing scenery.

Happy New Year to you all from Hey Grandma!


  1. First of all, I thought that picture was awesome! We are very blessed to have children that are working and living wonderful lives, I have seen so many go completely off course. My husband was a carpenter when we were first married and it was rough so I am happy to hear that your dear husband is getting back to work! We can pray for you to find the perfect line of work - God worked a miracle for me and he can do for you !! Happy New Year :)

  2. It sounds like 2011 is full of hope and opportunity!
    Happy New Year!!
