Wow, I can't believe how fast the time goes. It seems like just a few short weeks ago we were basking in the warm summer breezes. Here it is time to start thinking about the New Year already! I had a lovely Christmas. However the celebrations are not yet over. My son and his girlfriend will be coming from out of state in the middle of January and so my husband and I will celebrate with them and my daughter and her boyfriend. On Christmas Day, we celebrated with my husbands three children, my sisters, brother in laws, nieces, nephews and little ones. We had a wonderful day and it was all over too fast. Kind of like a wedding where there is so much time spent in the preparations and in a blink of an eye, the celebration is over. I love the idea of Christmas and the joy of giving. I wish I could afford to give more to more people, like the less fortunate. We always hear about so many worthy causes at Christmas time that we could give to and I always feel like I would like to give to all of them. Thank goodness for churches that reach out to those who have little or nothing. At this time of year, I thank God for all He has given me and that I feel very fortunate for all the good in my life. I hope you feel the same.
