It's simply time

Hey all....

We have had a crazy, busy week with end of the year Christmas parties, field trips, and the beloved Middle School exam. I barely survived science and learned that "our" efforts got "us" an 88 on our final exam. And, let's just say that momma squealed and carried on like a wild woman in the parking lot.

Now that we are officially done with all that stuff, it's time for me to move into the place of "preparing for Christmas." I need to prepare my own heart and mind. I need to spend some serious time reading the Gospels on the beautiful birth of our Lord and Savior. I need to get my children ready for the true meaning of Christmas. I need to bake cookies and having the sights and sounds of Christmas among us.

In order for that to happen like I want it to, I must leave blogland for awhile. And, I suggest you do the same too. ;) Then I don't feel so bad. Ha!

Merry Christmas, friends. I love you dearly. You are constantly in my prayers. And, I'm praying for some beautiful God things to happen over you and your family this Christmas season.
Luke 2:10 "But an angel said to them, Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people."

Much love and many blessings this Christmas season~

Fran and family

I took the break... wading back in now. 209 posts in my reader, 85 things to blog about, and a cozy bed beckoning me back....the prognosis isn't good for my big comeback today ;)


I blog so you can get a glimpse into my life as wife, mom of 3 boys, and someone who simply wants to bless others along the way. Have fun and be sweet :)
