Today we buried my husbands grandmother. I have to say this was probably one of the hardest things I have ever had to do. I feel like I had so much more to learn from her. She was the most saintly person I have ever known. As we sat with the preacher last night telling stories we realized she was the one who taught us all to pray. I remember her telling me to "ask Jesus only once for a blessing and then thank him for it every night after." She told me that thanking him for a blessing even before you received it showed faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and that even though blessings didn't always come in our time if at all, a faithful servant had a thankful heart. When I needed prayer she was the one I called, for she had the closest relationship with the Lord of anybody I knew. Nanny Lucy...you will be missed.

I am in love with all things monogrammed. I have noticed that there are alot of "L's" popping up around the house lately. I found a new antique mall here in Oklahoma and hit the jackpot when I came across these vintage metal sign letters at only $5.00 and $8.00 each. My son Trevor thought I was crazy when I decided to group them in his bathroom, but like his dad, he has learned not to ask too many questions.

I am not one to make promises of the New Year but this year is definitely an exception! After going to work full time my house has gone to the dogs. My husband has done a great job with helping me but let's be honest it just doesn't compare to being home and staying on top of things everyday. So what did sweet husband do...he put my craft closet back together for me and is helping get the whole house organized. So I have jumped on the organization in the year 2009 band wagon... and I can't wait! We're off to a great start and the new carpet is coming soon!!! I feel like a kid in a candy store. What are you ladies doing to get yourselves organized? I'd love to hear any suggestions you have, and look at what Amy is doing to organize her closets.
