A very MERRY and BLESSED CHRISTMAS to all who may stumble upon this blog; which I don't really delude myself in thinking that anyone actually will. It is a cool and rainy day here in MI. We are spending Christmas with part of DH's family. It's nice to be together with them and especially with our kids. Christmas is meant to be spent with family. It's a somewhat subdued Christmas this year as DH's mom is not in good health and this will most likely be our last with her. But it has been a very special Christmas! What a blessing it is to be part of such a loving family. Thank you God not only for the gift of your son, but the gift to me of this wonderful family. There can be no better gifts than those!
