Oh, how I love my Susan Branch calendars.
I save them from year to year.
When I get ready to put up my new calendar,
it is a production.
I get out my colored pens and pour a cup of hot tea.
I spread everything onto the dining room table.
But first I look at all the entries that I have made,
from the previous year.
It's a year in review for me because
my calendar is like a diary.
I write everything on the calendar.
It's fun to see what day someone's birthday falls on.
As I write their name, I think about them and say a prayer for them.
I also write down special events that have happend.
This year I added the birth
of our third grandchild,
My new calendar is up and waiting for new appointments and special events.
I also decided to get a new address book.
I have been ripping the return addresses off of envelopes and
throwing them in the drawer.
Look at my new address book!
Well, it's not a cute Susan Branch book,
but look closely...
It's large print!
So much easier for Tom to read.
Happy New Year!
