Merry Christmas to All... and to All

Peace, sanity, strength and the discipline to pray regularly.  I haven't had that discipline,....and it was not by my faith that my mom survived an aneurysm, crainiotomy and all the brutality that comes along with such an event.  She is a very young 70 and seems relatively unchanged in personality.  What??  The stories I have heard about these things are beyond imagination.  We've been so very blessed that it has brought me to my knees.  To my knees.  
My sister is 5 years clear now of a devastating breast cancer, and my husband has his vision despite detached retinas in both eyes.  These are my Christmas gifts.  My children are beyond well, my nephew is to become a father shortly.

This next year I will spend significant time on my knees.
I wish you all the very happiest and peaceful of holidays, and may the promise of the Christ Child keep you where you need to be.


  1. Merry Christmas to you and yours, sweet thing!

    We will talk soon and share our resolutions to better ourselves in the coming years...
    You have a head start on me!

  2. A good place to be... Blessed Christmas and a creative new year to you!
