2008......can you believe it is here already! We let the SAND MAN ring in the New Year for us last night (We slept through it!). We picked up the Little Package yesterday so we get to spend the New Year with her. Danny's parents invited us for lunch today. Southern Folks know what the menu will be......Black Eye Peas & Mustard Greens!! It is a Southern tradition that is suppose to bring you luck & money! I don't believe in luck but I do believe in BLESSINGS! GOD has been so good to me all my life! I don't need luck!

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11

I really believe HE loves me & means well in my life despite the bad times I go through sometimes. It is the same for you too. So I'm going to eat peas & greens today & enjoy my family with the confidence in HIS PLANS for me in 2008!

What about yall? Happy New Year everyone!!

HAPPY NEW YEAR! We had blackeye peas but we had collards instead of mustard greens.

Your family is lovely. I agree, it is blessings instead of luck.

Tina, my camera is just aboutlike my old kodak. Nothing like the pictures your momma takes. It is easy to use but does not take the good photos that your MOm's canon does.

Hi Tina! Happy New Year!! My mother-in-law made black eyed peas, greens, cornbread and chicken and dumplings. It was all GOOD! :0)

It's hard to believe that we will soon be through the first decade of this century and only yesterday everyone was worried about y2k and how the world might come to an end!

You have the right attitude looking into the future!

Your blog changes are great!
Sorry you missed the fun of the ice ring but you have more important things to tend to, your, "little package" :)

Happy New Year to you and yours Tina!! I love the pictures you posted. That Grandbaby is something else.

We had greens and black-eyed peas at our house as well.

I hope the ice and cold weather hasn't hurt your crop.

I have added your site to my Georgia blogroll at Georgia on My Mind where I have an extensive collection of blogs authored by folks from our fair state.

I founded and maintain the Georgia Carnival. It posts every other week, and I invite you to visit Georgia on My Mind where information is available regarding the carnival along the sidebar of my site. Please think about submitting a post to the carnival in the future.

Just visiting from GA on My Mind. I love the picture at the top of your blog it reminds me of some land near my Grandma's in Americus, GA.
