It is a time of hope, change, growing in our lives, etc. Many aspects of life, we hope stays the same. I am thankful Rex and I did start the year with communion, then we had the traditional meal of black-eyed peas and greens at Oma's home with a lot of family and friends. I am ending the first day of the year, so tired, (as usual) by cleaning house. I am very thankful I have a home to clean and can physically be able to clean.
