bye bye 2012..hello 2013 and giveaway

Here is is...the end of another year...
2012 was a really weird year for me personally.

Not alot happening..but yet alot happening if that makes any sense. 

I never make resolutions...I just dont believe in them.
But I do need to pick my ONE WORD for the year.

Last year my word was DILIGENT. I did ok with it...but I believe I could have done better.

For one word is going to be JOY.

Joy in every situation
Joy that comes ONLY from my savior Jesus Christ.
Joy in helping others without a reward
Joy in speaking nice about others
Joy when there seems to be no answer
Joy when I am having a bad tummy day

 Have you picked you ONE WORD for 2013?
To learn all about it click HERE

Joy is a choice...not always an easy one.

Once you pick your one word
leave me a comment here.
I am going to make you something with that ONE WORD on it.
NO rules, just leave what the ONE WORD is.
I will pick a winner on January 13th.

Bye Bye computer and the Winner! 10+ old computer finally died.  I think it had been wanting
to give out for a while but we kept babying it.
I can home from work on birthday..and it said no more.
So then we had to decide to we shovel money into this...or do we get a new one.
after much debate we decided on getting a new one.
The one that died was a desktop..I decided after talking with hubby yo get a laptop.
So it will be here Tuesday.

Mean while I have been using my sons laptop..I will confess laptops take ALOT of getting use to.
But with a connected mouse I do much better.

Now..on with the winner of my giveaway.
