I know the next 48 hours are crazy for most people so I want to take the moment now and wish all of you a very merry CHRISTmas and a joyful and blessed New Year. This is my tree filled with all vintage glass ornaments from my parents, my in laws, and some 40 year old ones we purchased when the kids were little. I hadn't had a tree for about five years. I have been the quintessential Bah Humbug person. This year, for some reason unknown to me, I have really gotten into the spirit. I choose to think my recently deceased brother has something to do with it! Who knows. I miss my loved ones who are with the Lord more at this time of the year than ever. But life goes on, doesn't it? May the light of the Christ child shine brightly in your hearts and may He bring the spirit of Christmas into your home and your life all year.
