Merry Christmas

Snow is falling lightly on the coast of Maine.

I might have shared this song before, but it never gets old for me. And it's so very true about the lovely state in which we live...

We've had a rough couple of weeks, but by God's grace, today was peaceful and lovely memories were made.

Merry Christmas and blessings to you all...

Catching up...

It's a good thing I did the 30 days of Thanksgiving in November, because shortly into December, the sh-- pretty much hit the fan. Suddenly what we thought were relatively minor health issues in our family blew up in our faces.

We're holding our own and we're all together for Christmas (yay for kids home from college) and we're thankful that for now, all is well.

But setting myself up like that for being thankful was very helpful and therapeutic. Although I've been blindsided by a few things, I've been able to go back to being thankful, after the initial shock passed.

Today, everything is calm and a gentle snowfall has covered the yard, the driveway, and the streets; enough that we are now guaranteed a white Christmas.
