Today is my birthday! Wow...I have hit the ripe old age of 59 but still feel like I am 20...okay it's the mind that feels like 20...the body feels like 100....lol. This is the first time in many years I have worked on my birthday. For some reason I decided not to take off. Not sure why but I didn't so here I sit at my work computer, doing exactly what I shouldn't be doing...a personal post...lol...Maybe at this age I just feel bolder than I did years ago....
I had a wonderful Christmas...it was quiet. Just my mom, myself, my daughter, son in law and grandson....I enjoyed it this year more so than in the past. We had our big meal on Christmas eve and then when my daughter and her family left to see the other parents, mom and I had the day to ourselves and it was quiet and peaceful. We got to enjoy ourselves with lots of mom and daughter talk. Family is what the season is about. The good Lord gave us so much and not to take the time to sit back and enjoy life is such a sad commentary on how we live our lives. I hope this coming years brings love, laughter, happiness and peace to all and may God bless you and keep you in his arms as I pray he does for me also.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Oh how I love the holidays. But on the other hand they make me sad because I am alone at home. Sometimes it is an effort to put up decorations alone. I miss having the family atmosphere I had years ago. But then I remember what this holiday is about. It is about our Lord Jesus and his birth. I believe in the beautiful Christmas story and the miracles around the wondrous story.....God's grace is so giving and each year I pray we all can love him as much as he loves us. Through all our hustle and bustle I hope each and everyone takes the time to look at your family and friends and be so grateful they are in your life and realize that God put them their for you. Hug them and tell them how much you care. This is my special Christmas wish this year for each and everyone. Merry Christmas through out the month and may all year bring us all joy!
