Summing it Up...

Now, that I'm way on the wrong side of sixty, I feel that being true to self is important. "I yam, what I yam." Kindness and smiles are to be given away. Women are strong. Men are more vulnerable than we believe. Husbands may come and go...but one thing I know for sure is that I will NEVAH live without a corgi or coffee in my life if I can prevent it. Come piles of dog fur or hot water!

Just a quick blessing and a hug to each and all this Christmas season. Indiana, it appears, will have a green Christmas this year. Josh and I had our cookie baking session. He went caroling with the church group, and had his Christmas date with Jenny last week. He made her an absolutely darling pair of Christmas tree earrings from tiny beads that she was so happy with, she immediately jumped up at Bob Evans and ran to the bathroom to put them on! We're having a very quiet Christmas. No yelps of joy from the grandkids, or hustle bustle. It's always so much more fun when all are home, isn't it?
May your family be near and dear. May happiness renew your heart. May the true spirit of Christmas open us to what's real. Life is fragile. We are all dear in HIS eyes. Bless us everyone!

Merry Christmas to you, Mom. I'll be thinking of you, and all the happy Christmas mornings we had growing up as I watch my kiddos experience that same thing. Christmas was always good at our house, and I hope I can do the same for my children. Love you & Miss you!!

Sounds like Jenny loved those earrings! I would give just about anything if we had a Bob Evans near here. Next time you go to one, order a Rise and Shine with bacon for me. That was the best part of the road trip going back home to Ohio for holidays, etc. years ago.

Can you believe this weather? We are going to pay, pay for these warmer days! No snow for Christmas, great! Here's wishing you and yours a blessed Christmas!
