Another New Year (sigh)

And no reason to think this one will be any different than the past 20. I hate being retired and struggling with this bad back. Feeling discouraged this evening. I began stitching Megan's Christmas stocking this week. It will match Erica's in style but not in design. Cassie and Brett have made a point of treating the girls as individuals and not as clones of each other. Their personalities are so very distinct. Whatever one does, the other hurries to do also. Watching them is great therapy for me. I do love toddlers. These two are becoming very verbal and I can more often understand what they say to me, and we can almost have a conversation. It usually does something like this: Twin: "Yaya dink." Me: "Yes, that is my drink." Not deep or intellectual, but rewarding in its own way.

I may be discouraged, but I am well aware of the blessings in my life.
