Copious amounts of Portzelky were consumed by all. My family came over later in the afternoon as if on cue. I tried to encourage everyone to have a healthy bowl of Turkey Soup. Terry reasoned that if he ate the soup first he might not be able to have an appropriate amount of Portzelky.
Dwain and Lori came with their boys and had already discussed a quota but quickly renegotiated that number when they saw that I had made them a bit smaller this year. It was a very informal event and it was great to be together for a few hours. Later I sent home goody bags and felt satisfied that I once again kept the tradition alive. I didn't take pictures of everyone and I'm not sure how I dropped the ball on that but at least I have a few memories captured.
So, 2007 begins and I trust that it will be a wonderful year for all those I love. We never know what the future holds but I know who holds the future.
I will once again this year strive to be a little more like Jesus. I will once again strive to be less prickly and more gracious. I'm thankful that I have the opportunity to once a year feel like I can begin anew.
Happy New Year everyone.
