Merry Christmas and God Bless Each of You
Last night I hosted my card group party. We have been playing together for 28 years and still have fun.
See I would rather be doing this than what I should be! Well today my only sister in law came for lunch and a quiet visit. We ate, drank Hot Cinnamon Spice tea, and talked while the carols played. We were both so relaxed and rejuvenated when she left.
SOOO, after she left, I decided I would go get the gifts I needed, grocery shop, and come home and wrap. Well, it didn't exactly happen that way. My friend Dottie had called earlier, so on my way I called her and she said she was on her way to Marshalls, as was I. We met up, shopped there, ran to a book store that was going out of business, decided to stop at Cheddars and have an early supper. Can you guess the rest of the story? Bet you can. lol I will get it done, I will wrap, and Christmas dinner will be ready by 5:30 Christmas Day. I can't help it I love being with friends and doing things. I am blessed to have so many friends and family. I am also blessed to be a part of the blogging world. Some of my procrastination is your fault. I HAVE to look at all of your decorations. Then I have to go change mine and it goes on and on. Well as this Christmas is coming to an end. I wish each and everyone of you a blessed time with your family and friends. Some of us have loved ones who for various reasons can't be with us this year. Some of us will have family who are there in body, although their minds have faded and they don't know they are there, but you will. Some of us are missing loved ones who have passed away. But let us remember who they were, how we are richer for having them in our lives and let us celebrate the Birth of Jesus with a loving spirit. Merry Christmas.
PS: Beth is fine and Amanda is doing well. Thank you again for your prayers. I am going to leave you with a few of my favorite Christmas vignettes.
