This morning Jim and I put up our first winter wreath for Christmas. I am so thankful for a new day to share with this wonderful person. We brought home two grand-daughters last night – a serendipitous event and I am enjoying their giggles and chatter. It turned really cold and it is snowing and that always excites me this time of year (snow more than cold – but they do go together). We have lost so many friends and family so we know how precarious life can be. Consequently I rejoice that I am watching one more snowfall – I hope it is a big one. I’m thankful that I was able to do exercise today that I almost enjoy, keeping my mind and body healthy.
Every so often I stop and smile as I remember all the fun we had at our family gathering yesterday. Not everyone was able to make it – one daughter is at her new job in Texas and our two grandsons had other plans. Also Hebah and Natashia weren’t there. We missed them but Marv cooked a wonderful meal (Thanks Marv) and there were a lot of hugs and laughter and leftovers. What joy. Tonight I am planning left-over turkey for supper.
