Merry Christmas!

I know it is only Christmas Eve, but now is the time to wish everyone a Merry Christmas! Although this is not a "normal" Christmas around our house, it is still an occasion for comfort and joy. We are very blessed in many ways, and Christmas is a time to be grateful for all those blessings. Terry is recovering, albeit slowly, but at least he is headed in the right direction. I am healthy enough to get around and do all I want and need to do. All of our children are well and have established adult lives. We have wonderful grandchildren. My dad is still thriving. The rest of our family is doing fine. We have enough money to live comfortably and help our family and others when it is needed. We don't seem to lack for anything that is important in life. Overall, we have a very good life and are luckier than many. Sometimes we get discouraged, as most people do, at circumstances that we can't control. However, when I think about it, I am extremely grateful for all we have been given. I know I have done nothing outstanding to merit all this, so all I can do is say, "Thank you, God."--And Life is good, of course!
