Happy Twenty Ten!!!!

We had big plans this New invite a few friends over, fondue, and make complete fools of ourselves playing Guesstures. But my immune system had other plans. Wednesday morning I woke up with a raging sore throat and head cold. And I have whined like a 2 year old since. I planned to press on but when I received a text from one of our guests that her son was vomiting with fever, we decided to cancel. Dang. Next time.

My super spectacular, Culinary Institute of America graduate husband, decided the show would go on here at our he set out shopping and returned to transform (dimmed lighting and all) our house into The Melting Pot.

Complete with Coq Au Vin and Yin Yang Fondue and all!

My waitsline will never be the same. We had a wonderful time here as McManus Party of Five, but we did miss the fellowship with our friends. Next Year. For sure.

I'm not sure if I plan to work on resolutions this all seems sort of pompous in light of the fact that tomorrow I will sit with a friend as she mourns the loss of her mom...just diagnosed with cancer in early November....released into the hands of Jesus New Years Eve morning...that Sunday I will sing the funeral of a woman so many thought would be in their Holiday photos many years to come...after all, we are not promised our next breath.

Perhaps I need to be more focused on and live better in the moment I'm given...learn better to treat it as the last moment I'm afforded with the ones I love. Perhaps I need to be less distracted on the fluff of life and more focused on things that will matter eternally...perhaps we all do. Perhaps.
Besides my yearly resolutions always have something to do with a gym membership and losing 15 pounds.
Why? See photo above.

1 Corinthians 2:2 "For I decided that while I was with you I would forget everything except Jesus Christ, the one who was crucified."

HAPPY TWENTY-TEN friends!!!! May your moments be rich with life and love!

"The object of a New Year is not that we should have a New Year....but that we should have a new soul" -G. K. Chesterton
