OK reading the posts about taking down the tree are making me glum looks like I need to re-post my essay on taking down the Christmas Tree; maybe this can help a little with everyone's blues...

I try to focus on my birthday after Christmas it is in February so that gives me something to look forward too

I will find the link and re-post my essay I think it will make us all feel better

Time will tell, but she still has the pains now. Not the best way to start off 2013 so please keep her in your prayers.

It's going to be a long day! I am exhausted so I think I am going to have to take a nap soon. Plus I have lots of work to do and a lot to prepare for starting back at school soon.

Drive safe to work and have a good day!
I hope your mom feels better.

After having been here a few years, when I see anything pertaining to Christmas, I think of all of you. And that's a good thing!
I know what you mean, when I see something like a Santa, I think Made would like that, or animal or polar bear I think of CM3, classic movies I think of you MC, and so on. Even though we never have met, I think of all of you also.

The only thing still up is my Christmas village, which my wife allows me to keep up until the warm weather hits!
Glad to see you get to keep something up until spring.

Yes, "The Christmas Angel" is available free for Kindle, too. It's kind of a generic title---make sure the author is Abbie Farwell Brown.
