FRIDAY FIVE: HOLIDAY REDUX EDITION

".....to give us all a record and partly to give us all a chance to reflect on the 2010 Holiday Season now that we are out of it, I ask you this:"

1) What food item was one of your favorites this year - a definite keeper?
The Bruschetta my 12 year old son made. Full of fresh basil and garlic. And such festive colors!
2) Was there a meal or party or a gathering that stands out in your mind from this most recent holiday season?
No. Because 2010 was such an excruciatingly difficult ordeal, we were just hoping to get through without more shoes dropping around us. Plus my son was sick all week.
3) Were you involved in a jaw-dropper gift? Were you the giver or recipient or an on-looker?
That I got gifts was a jaw-dropper. This was the first year in many that I received more than two gifts. Though, my main pleasure has always been to watch my son open his, I would still feel a bit left out. But NOT this year....Oh no!!! What fun. 
4) Was there at least one moment where you experienced true worship?
I have not enjoyed an experience of true worship in a long time. I travel the vast dry desert currently.
5) What is at least one thing you want to make sure you do next year?
Remain above-ground.
BONUS: What is something you absolutely must remember to do differently... or not at all!
OR: If you just want to sum it all up in a few words, that will work too.
Hmmmm. Next year I want to put up the outside lights I did not have time to put up this year.

I went for a year in a very dry desert. Just know that you do not travel alone.

So sad about 2010, so glad you got lots of presence, and still praying that someday you will leave the desert behind and that I will be doing that too....love you, dear PG. Don't know, now that Larry died (and he and Darlaine were my reason for going west) how long it will be before my home state sees me again, but I hope I can spend some time with you if I ever get there.
