As you prepare to celebrate the birth of the Christchild with your families, take a moment to thank Him for the many blessings we all have. It truly is a miracle for me to be here with my family today. Enjoy this glorious day. Merry Christmas to all!!!!!

Happy Holidays

I know it has been a long time since I have blogged and I guess the only excuse I can use is "no news is good news". I have been feeling well and the doctor gave me the go ahead to go back to work after the first of the year. I was elated! He told me to take it slow so I will do 4 hour shifts at first, but it seems that my life may actually be starting to get back to "normal". Kyle and I have been busy, as I am sure all of you have been with getting ready for Christmas. This Christmas will be very different for us, as all of you who know me well know that I always go overboard at Christmas. Some even go so far as to call me Mrs. Christmas! Well this year will be different. We will be celebrating the true meaning of Christmas. There was little money for gifts and our home didn't get decorated as much as usual.......... but I keep remembering the scene from the Grinch on Christmas morning after he had taken all the toys and Christmas things from the people of Whoville. As they awoke on Christmas morning, they all began to sing of the glorious Christmas morn and the Grinch was confused..... he said " it came without presents, it came without bows, it came without tinsel and turkeys and more.....maybe Christmas doesn't really come from a store, maybe Christmas is really a little bit more!" The true meaning of Christmas will be felt in our home, the love for our children and grandchildren will fill our hearts and we will celebrate the birth of our Lord, Jesus, to whom we owe everything. I thank Him daily for allowing me to see another Christmas with my family, and I pray for many more. To all of you....Merry Christmas my dear friends and thank you for helping me get where I am today. Without you none of this would be possible.
