Now 2010 comes to a close. Thinking back I remember how it was in 1999 when everyone was fearing what was going to happen when the year changed to 2000. People were stocking up and learning what they thought they needed to know. Some people gave their supplies away after that. Surprised me that anyone would do that! After you have the supplies stocked up why did they want to give them to food pantries or dump them? It was a good start on having some security. Regardless of whether you are a homesteader or just a person living in a normal life.
I don't really make resolutions, I call them goals. I will be making a post about them tomorrow. Today I spent the day with my father, who at 91 is pretty agile and quick. He still works on his car, house, garden and has wonderful sense of humor. I love him dearly, and every year I fear will be his last. I am thankful to God to have had him this long. Him and I spent a lot of time together when I was growing up. He was that kind of father.
Today I also spent some time with my son and seeing the new place he lives at now. I admit, I was wary of him living with my niece, Lisa and her family. But I have mended those fences. I have decided it was time to have a "forgiving heart" and this is where I was tested constantly. This year I will do my best to live my faith as an example to others. And this was the first step.
So my last day of 2010 was satisfying and enjoyable. I hope your's was too, and hope you and your family have a great year to come in 2011. See you next year!
