project 365 done!!!...

wow, what an incredible and challenging journey this has been!  i can't believe i am done with this photo/blog project 365!  365 or more of photos and 365 days of blog posts done, finished, and accomplished by yours truly!  a big thank you to my kids and hubby for cheering me on and telling me not to give up on those days when i felt like stopping.  if it wasn't for them i would have stopped months ago!
take 1...
 take 2...
 take 3...
also, a big THANKS to all my blog readers and followers!  the blog world is an incredible place and through blogging i have met some really amazing ladies whom i have become friends with and you know who you are!  all of you have been my inspiration!  thank you everyone for taking your time to stop by daily, read and leave comments on my blog!  every single comment puts a smile on my face!

so for those who are wondering whether i will continue to blog, the answer is yes!  my project365 may have come to an end but i will continue to keep this blog up and running and post periodically... so please stay tuned and come back often for more of  "oh sweetlee me".

on another note...this year has been filled with sorrow, illnesses, and trials.  as happy as i am with this accomplishment i am also filled with much sadness at the same time.  a student from the kids school has gone missing and has yet to be found. yes, a parent's worst nightmare. her name is phylicia barnes.  here is the article.

also, one of my best friends is waiting for her husband, best friend, soul mate to pass from this life and to the arms of our heavenly father.  this was totally unexpected and caught all of us off guard.  i really wish i could be there for her and be by her side, i wish i could hug her and hold her close but i'm thousands of miles away so i can't.  all i can do is pray.  i pray for a peaceful passing and i ask all of you to pray for her in the days, weeks, months and years ahead as she is going to need strength, peace, comfort and her faith to keep her going.  

so while we celebrate the coming of the new year.  keep those families that are hurting in your prayers.  thank you.

love and blessings to you all in the new year!....here's to 2011!

Alely,
I am so impressed. Congrats on your accomplishment. I don't think that I could have done it.
I am so sorry to hear about your friend's husband. I will certainly pray for her and her family.
My heart is breaking for Phylicia's family. I hope and pray that she is found soon. This is going to be a reality check for our kids. I keep checking facebook for updates.
Love you-
Christine

Congratulations on finishing, Alely! That's really well done – I know many people that start but don't finish. So you should be very proud. Wishing you a wonderful new year!
