My younger sister lost her short battle with cancer in the middle of October. It was very sad but also very heartening to see so many of her friends and family be there for her and loving her.
Then our son’s family woke up in the early hours of October 31st to banging on their door to ” Get out there is a fire!”. I am so Thankful all the families in their apartment building were able to escape. I am so grateful our kids are safe and for the outpouring of help and well wishes by our small community to all those affected.
But things have a way of piling on and catching up with you. So I have in a bit of a funk ( do people still say that?) with all that has happened. It is so helpful to see our 6 grandchildren getting excited about Christmas. It is quite contagious. Oh did I mention we now have a 2 year old and 7 month living with us? We offered for our son and family to stay with us till they figure out what they want to do next. We are so thankful we still have room in our home for them. Our Little Miss Number Five loves helping me with barn chores, especially the chickens. So amid all the busyness of this most blessed season, we are holding our family a little closer and we are treasuring them all the more.
Wishing you a very Merry Blessed Christmas Season!
