On A Personal Note

Have I ever told you that Christmas is my very favorite time of year?  I LOVE all the tradition, the family gatherings, the secrets and surprises, the baking, the decorating, and most of all the remembering our Savior Jesus Christ. 
With all of our children gone now, we have to find new ways to make the season meaningful.  One of our favorite things is to provide Christmas for a family that would otherwise not have much to celebrate.  We feel so grateful to be able to give a little something to brighten someone else’s life.
We spent about 10 days with our son and his family in Maine last month.  Such a rewarding experience to see their happy family and the things that they are creating in their own family.  Very grateful for such a darling daughter-in-law and three beautiful granddaughters!  So proud of Jason and what a wonderful father he is!
We are heading out right after Christmas to visit with Brian and his family in Arizona.  They are expecting a little girl on the 30th and we are excited to welcome her to our family.  She will join big brother Crew.  We are also grateful for what good parents they are!
Jonathon and his wife will be here to spend Christmas with us.  They make us grateful that we are not completely alone in our big house!
We have been very blessed this year with amazing sons and their beautiful families, good friends, and wonderful clients!  Wishing you each a very Merry Christmas and a New Year filled with health, hope and happiness.  May we notice the good in our lives and always count our many blessings……
