New Beginnings

I love January.

Maybe because it represents new beginnings.
Maybe because the house is clean and back to normal.
Maybe because it's my birthday month.
I enjoy starting a new plan for my daily devotions.
I enjoy the all the possibilities.
I write out new goals.

This new year represents hope.
I am looking forward to what God has in store 
for me and for my family.

Today we had our traditional New Years Day dinner.
I cooked fresh mustard greens, black-eyed peas 
and a honey ham.
I always thought everyone observed this practice 
but learned it's a southern observance.

I remember bringing a friend from Michigan 
home from college and mom was serving black-eyed peas.
She wouldn't touch them.
She said they fed them to their cows.
Whether or not they bring luck or grant prosperity,
they are yummy.
What do people from Michigan know?
Just kidding.

We have watched football all day.

I don't care who wins but these two are the cutest!

My concern when I watch college ball is...
1. are they hurt? &
2. their momma's hearts must be going crazy.

I've yacked your ears off.
I will hush.

Happy January to You!
