Twenty Fourteen will arrive in just a few days…
Are you ready for the fresh start and opportunity she will bring?
The New Year is like a beautiful blank book…..
We will open the book. Its pages are blank.
We are going to put words on them ourselves.
The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year’s Day.

Catch up on all that’s Extraordinary…
this week at An Extraordinary Day!
Here’s a rundown of this week’s posts:
Humbled and Blessed
Yes…I love parties…especially the ones I can enjoy in my PJ’s. [wink]
Each week I make the round of link parties hosted by various bloggers. Many of the hosts will feature their favorites from the party sometime thereafter. I’m grateful to the following bloggers for featuring some of my posts: Mabe She Made It ~ Carolyn’s Homework
This week I had the most views ever on a day and it was all due to my Christmas Sweater Stocking Tutorial being featured on this blog: DIY Cozy Home
On a Personal Note
It would be fabulous if you would help me grow the Facebook page for An Extraordinary Day. If you haven’t “Liked” our page yet….would you please do that? And…would you invite your friends to “Like” it too? My dream is to grow the page to 1000 by New Year’s Day. As of today…we need to add 175 more friends to reach our goal. Thanks for anything you can do to help make it happen.
How was your Christmas? Though this was not the Christmas we might have planned, it was every bit as special and memorable. Maybe more so. I enjoyed helping my friend plan the table decor and prepare a delicious ham dinner for her family. It really was lovely and I had fun blessing my friend with the kitchen clean up so she could have extra time with her son who was here for just a brief time. Though I made a few gifts, I did not expect to receive anything and so I was totally blown away when I opened up a box with a really amazing new version of my dying camera. Yes…this not-very-emotional gal was a mess. Who do you know who would spend her Christmas bonus on a friend? A one-in-a million friend…that’s for sure! Did I say I was blessed? Beyond imagination.
So, just when I find out that the temporary job is unexpectedly over….God lavishes his love on us through the arms of our friends.
Did you have a pleasant surprise at Christmas?
Wishing you an Extraordinary weekend!
