Merry Christmas

I just wanted to jump on here fast to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas. As we all get ready for the day I hope we all take a moment to remember what is important in our lives. ( or by the time you read this to take a moment to reflect on how wonderful the day was). We are very lucky to still have mom here with us to celebrate another holiday. It is almost a year since learning that she has cancer. We know that she is terminal, but we are very grateful for each day that she is still here. Day by day, I have learned strength from her, especially in the last year. I hope if I ever have to deal with such an awful illness that I have the strength she has shown. Faith in God that she has.
There will be 29+ people here today. I say plus as the count seems to grow by one or two each day. My sister said that she will bring the shoehorn! Chicken and stuffing are in the oven now. Everyone brings part of the meal. Except for the main items we don't plan the rest. So I don't know for sure what wonderful surprises we will be feasting on. Works for us!
Dark, dreary day today. No snow. It has all melted off. Just wet dirty dog feet each time the dogs come in. But there won't be any travel worries, at least around here.
Please remember the less fortuate. The ones who can't afford to eat this well or to be with family. The ones suffering from illnesses of the mind or body. All who are without hope that things will get better. We are truely blessed.
Our wishes for you are that you have a very Merry Christmas with family and friends. If you can't be with family I hope that your day is still wonderful. Merry Christmas from our home to yours. Hugs, Teresa

    1. Yes we had a wonderful day. Each holiday we have with mom is a bonus!
      I hope you had a wonderful day also with all of your family in one place! I bet it was pretty active around there with all of the boys in the house!
