Heaven, and the Christmas Time be praised for this! I say it on my knees, old Jacob, on my knees!' (Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol)

    I took mine down last Sunday

    I had a bad start to the year after that ... lots of bad stuff happening including crashing my car 3 days ago. Makes everything seens even more depressing. Hopefully things start getting better soon!

    I know Blue! 2009 was A TERRIBLE YEAR! All my hopes were for a great turnaround in 2010! Well the year started out with my daughter's boyfriend totaling his car on January 2nd and my other daughter totaling her car on 1/7! The drain field for our septic system appears to have a problem and the drain field for the washer appears to be frozen and caused a flood in the laundry room! On the bright side - no one was hurt in the car accidents and there is no permenant damage in the house!

    It could be worse. A good friend's next door neighbor had a fire at her house yesterday. Amazingly, it was the same day the owner was scheduled for a cesarian section!

    On the bright side = no damage to my friend's closely situated house and her daughter feels like a hero for seeing the fire and calling 911!

    I'm still hoping for a great 2010! Forever optimistic!

    ornamentmaven, gosh that is really a long string of bad luck! I'm glad to hear that everyone's fine and there is no permanent damage. It was the same for me ... the only "one" sustaining real damage was my poor car. It's really old and I've been planning to change it but I'm feeling a very strong attachment to it!

    Looking at the brighter side of things, I think that perhaps it's god's way of waking us up and telling us to be more alert! It's really easy to sink into complacency when things run smoothly. Also a reminder to count our blessings ... you and I might have had a bad start to the year but nothing compared to the Haitians. My heart really goes out to the poor children there

    Yea, Haiti is gone, so as thousands of people..
    That devastating quake of Tuesday, was the largest to hit a country in 200 years.. Its just unbelievable.

    I get shivers everytime I think of what they must be going through. They have a long, hard road ahead of them in rebuilding.

    And irs even more sad, when you think that this country is one of the poorest in the world..

    I feel very sad. I just do not watch TV, cause I can not stand the photos..
