Hello all

I hope that everyone had a wonderful Christmas. Ours was lovely. I also was blessed to see my brother David a few times while he was home. He is a Marine and thankfully he and my brother Christopher are both back from overseas. I hope Chris has time to come home soon so that I can hug him a bunch like I did my brother David.

Now on to the SIGH...... portion of this post. The mechanic who looked at our suburban made a unfortunate mistake. The transmission was indeed having some trouble and now is no more. While before we might have been able to repair and overhaul, now we are looking at a new transmission. SIGH........

Oh well, yes I am frustrated, but we have alot to be thankful for

1. my husbands new job is 5 blocks away and he has a ride, Praise God,

2. the failure happened 2 blocks from home on an okay weather day, Praise God

3. it did not happen Tuesday when we drove an hour away from home and got ice and it took us two and a half hours to get home, that would have really sucked, Praise God

4. We live in a fairly small town so the library and grocery store is not to far away, Praise God

I am not sure when we will be able to get it up and running again, but God has blessed us and always kept us.

Praise God

Have a blessed new year
