Happy New Year

Every moment a gift; Every life a miracle

Today begins a new year. There always seems to be a hush, an expectancy, an open room beckoning on this day. When I was younger it scared me. "What would the new year bring?" I asked myself. Now I breathe in and breathe out and worry less. No weight of glory or dread rests more heavily on this day. It is a gift like every other and we, here at the ranch will try to keep hearts, and minds open to its wonders and make our decisions with the realization that the consequences of today's choices are carried into our tommorrows.

As for blogging, we have made the decision to post a little less. I have caught myself getting a little too OCD about the whole thing and my inner thoughts have sounded too much like a post. LOL! This last year we aimed (I actually mean I aimed, Mark rarely plans!) at posting every other day and succeeded with 195 posts in 2008. This year I will aim at posting weekly. In all likelihood we will post more, but being a bit goal oriented, I will always have a new post up on the weekend... in case you're checking and we hope you are checking. Why you might be checking we often ask ourselves, but nonetheless, we are glad when you do.

"May the Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace." - The Bible/ Numbers 6:24-26


  1. OK, so you're going to put us on a diet. I guess I'll have to look forward to each weekend.

    Good for you.


  2. Happy New Year...We love you guys!

  3. With all I'm going through, you're doing THIS to ME???!!! ;) I guess I'll try and be a big girl about your decision. Heck, I should do the same! I am always blogging in my head. Is that bad?!


We love to hear what you have to say. Keep your comments coming! Thanks.
