It's been a long day but a good day for hubby and I, we got some shopping done and bought a new artificial Christmas tree 61/2 ft tall with the lights built in so we got new garland for it, next Sunday we'll get all three grandchildren over to decorate it and the inside of the house as well we've created a tradition over the last few years. Adam isn't really interested but he'll put an ornament or two on the tree to make me happy he's almost 14 so I'm pleased that he still comes, Mason being 8 still enjoys decorating, Emma is 15 and being a girl loves doing it and next Sunday is my birthday so it's even more special to me getting everyone together this coming Friday is my hubby's birthday he'll be 60, I have a couple of yrs before the big 60. I am so happy being an Ex Smoker and having well over 3 yrs in since quitting but I'll remain vigilant and protect the best gift that I'll ever give myself which is the gift of Life so I always want to remember my day One and the early days and wks that followed because going back is not happening. We all can and will continue stacking up our glorious Days WON! Saying YES TO FREEDOM! Quitting smoking is definetly difficult but it's absoloutely Doable and so very worth it to be Free so hang on tight and don't let go until you come out the other side smiling. so hang tough and keep plowing forward. The bottom pic is from decorating day last Christmas, I know many of you have seen it before but quite a few new folks here so I thought I'd repost it.
