Final (2007) Year in Review Post

I am most richly blessed...

"The Big Three" - Elisabeth (Liz), Jemima (Mice) and Mary (Mare)
Don't ask about the nicknames - they started back when we were all little kids!

God has been so good to me. Of all the things I have been given when I look back over my year, my family would rank a definite first place! I am the person I am today, because of their influence. I'm striving to be the kind of person I want to be tomorrow, because they love me and encourage me and inspire me to walk on and to grow. They are my best friends, and I can just be myself, because they love me the way I am. : )
My sisters and I make memories nearly every night as we all share a bedroom and stay up way too late, talking far too long! But our friendships are worth the loss of sleep! : )

All of the girls together - Liz (20), Ruth (15), Jemima (21), Mary (25) and Joanna (12)

Awww, those are such *good* pictures of you girls! I miss you all so much! ::hugs all around::

And I know just what you mean about late-night talks with best-friends-sisters...my sisters and I have the same precious blessing of sharing a bedroom and staying up all hours of the night solving the problems in our little world. ;-) God sure is good to us.

I love you, girls!!! 2007 brought definite growth in my knowledge of the Ueland sisters...knowledege that has made them all the more endearing and interesting. :)

Thanks for livening things up around here with all your exciting and sometimes 'strange' stories. :) I always enjoy hearing the stories you bring to church on Sunday or prayer on Tuesday night...very interesting indeed! And it's even better when we have a couple days together at VOM...Mary and Joanna, ya'lls gotta come along next time. ;-)

Love ya bunches!

Dear Mary-
It is such a blessing to just know you and your family. Thank you so much for sharing those blessings with us!

I pray the Lord will continue to work in all of you and through all of you. YOu are truly a Godly family.
