2009 in pictures

It’s quiet here this morning.
The falling snow has hushed the world outside.

It’s a beautiful snowy day.

I met a friend this morning for breakfast.
Unfortunately he had to eat and run.


Only a few more hours and we turn the page on 2009. 
We’ve had joys this year. 

Ashlynn was baptized.  What a blessed joy.

I was recognized at work.  A nice pat on the back.
My dorky little story made it as a finalist and placed fourth in a book competition, which means nothing, but it was a fun experience.
We’ve had sorrows.
We lost a precious one–Dustin Shane.
And gained a precious one–Maxx Shane.
And then lost another, my Aunt Frances.
And then lost another, Jason’s Aunt Kala.
The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away.
Summer invited water balloon fights and crazy kids.
 My brother Steve getting pelted with a balloon.
My Crazy Niece Zoie says heck to the balloons and wields the hose instead.
You gotta do what you gotta do.

Autumn brought grapes, goblins, and bengal tigers.
And lots and lots and lots of leaves.
This Christmas was the best ever for me in terms of contentment.
I did manage to get a tree up in the nick of time.
I have many hopes, dreams, and goals for the coming year.
I love new beginnings.
Fresh starts.
“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.”  Isaiah 43:18-19
All the art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on. 
May you have a prosperous 2010.

I’m Angel, a.k.a. Rocket Surgeon, and these are my chronicles. I love writing and I believe our stories should be shared, so here you’ll find anecdotes of my life, loves, worries, fears, joys, and experiences. I blog about my mishaps and adventures as a wife, mommy, auntie, wanna-be writer, teacher, Texan, country/city/mountain girl, cereal killer and Jesus-freak. A few things you might discover about me: •Jesus is my everything; without Him I am nothing, but with him I can do all things •My family makes this world a better place for me to live in •I adore chickens, the live ones, although the cooked ones aren’t too bad either •I have 2 dogs: Grace and Ozzie. And one cat: Rocky Muffin •My dream job would be to raise chickens and write best sellers Thanks for stopping by. Kick off your shoes and stay awhile. I know your time is valuable and I honor you for spending a few moments here with me. I hope you find something to brighten your day, lighten your load, make you chuckle and remind you of the good in the world. “When you look for the bad in mankind, expecting to find it, you surely will."
