The title of this blog comes from one of my favorite hymns."It is Well With My Soul"
When peace like a river attendeth my way
When sorrows like sea billows roll, Whatever my lot, Thou has taught me to say
It is well, it is well, with my soul

Christmas is over, things are kind of quiet this week. This is the time of year I get a little reflective, with one year ending another about to begin.
This has been a year of change for our family and we have much to be thankful for
My youngest son has moved closer, so we are able to visit more often. A nice little benefit, he is a short commute away from my extended family, he has been able to see my parents twice since he has moved.
My SIL now lives near us, God met us in so many miraculous ways during the crisis that prompted that move. We are all still adjusting to the change but God continues in his faithfulness.
Due to various circumstances, extended family has begun to communicate more, I now talk to siblings on a regular basis
We have a new grandchild, another little girl. I am a mom of sons, so it has been a real treat to have little girls around the house.
Good report from physicians, health issues which seemed to have taken center stage most of the year have quieted down.
That was our year, despite the challenges, there was much to be thankful for.
Lord you have assigned me my portion and my cup; you have made my lot secure. The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance Psalm 16:5-6
