Farewell old year. Welcome New Year!

Thank you 2015!  You were good to us. 

I was paging through my journal to see what stuck out to me through the year.  Honestly, I lead a very low key, almost boring life, but I love it, and I feel so blessed. I'm so glad that the things I wrote down in my book were simple, everyday kinds of things like:  birthdays, two births, the first rhubarb pie, the veggie garden arrangement, the first lambs and calves born, the new haying equipment, deaths of old friends, fires and rains, misty fog, sewing projects, and afternoons spent with the grandkids.  All little parts of a year in a life.

I'm looking forward to the New Year, seeing what God has in store for me and for my family. Thank you for coming to visit me here at Gumbo Lily.  It's fun to read your kind comments and know that you think what's going on with me is interesting and worth stopping in for.  You're such nice people.

I wish you all the best in the New Year.  Be blessed.  Be joyful.


  1. I love your life, too!
    Prayers for lovely snowshoeing and bird spotting!
    I'm already looking forward to lambing but do the cows come first?
    Sending love! Happy New Year!

  2. Thank you for sharing your life. My life is very similar expect for the cows and sheep! Wishing you are your family a most blessed 2016!

  3. I'm glad you chose that photo. It's great to see it again!
    God is good to us.
    Amen to your wish for the new year!

  4. I look forward to becoming acquainted through the world of blogging...T'is the simple things in life that mean the most...your life sounds wonderful, probably because it is very similar to mine...Happy New Year!!!

  5. May you and yours be blessed with health and happiness this year. It's been all joy knowing you thru blog land.

  6. Boring? Ha! Your life is so far from boring, it's coming to meet it from the opposite direction and blowing it off the globe! Your life shared via your blog has greatly enriched *my* life, for several good years now. Thank you, Jody! May your new year be just as full and wonderful with the gifts of God.

  7. I am so glad you think you had a boring life. Your life never seems boring to me. Never. I always love reading about your life. I love how you think.
    I wish you blessings and more blessings in 2016

  8. Wishing you and your family a blessed 2016.I've moved to the country and I lead a pretty 'boring' life much like one you describe but the past eight months of my boring life have been wonderful and I'm looking forward to 2016 as it unfolds quietly.

  9. Happy New year!! I look forward to a boring life! :o) Hugs!!

  10. Surely you jest Ms. Gumbo! I don't think your life sounds boring at all! Quiet maybe, but not boring. I think it sounds like heaven and I love reading and dreaming about it. Happy New Year!

  11. I think your life is quite fascinating -- not everyone gets to live in Montana, and to live on a ranch, and do the big outdoors work that you do with your husband. It's pretty amazing. I think it's a special life. I also love "boring" days at home, so so much. May your new year be peaceful and joyous.
