We are getting so close to Christmas and I am so excited to spend the day with my family. We are baking a few things tomorrow and gathering all the supplies for Christmas brunch. We have a full day planned for Christmas day...such a wonderful time of the year. There are so many wonderful things that have happened this year. My children are turning into young women, each with such special gifts...they are my treasures. My parents have spent a lot of time with us again this summer and for that I am so thankful. I am truly blessed with a sister who would give me the world if only she could and a husband that works without complaint even when it isn't that much fun!! I look forward to a day of celebration for the grace and mercy that we have been given and even when I don't make all the right choices I know that I am forgiven even before I ask. I know there was a child in a manger that knew why He was here and never strayed from that task..and we are so loved!!! May you Christmas be the most joyous, the most love filled and the most wonderous day of the year....Merry Christmas from my home to yours!!! Be blessed dear friends.
