Good evening,

After missing a week of work, the mess is still being worked on. I am hoping to be done by tomorrow.

To say the least, I am exhausted.

I did say to my wife it was my turn to drive the new car tomorrow, she just laughed at me.


Good night my cherished Christmas friends

Thanks Christmas-A-Holic. My Mum would ask you to
please use your prayers for her to double the prayers for someone who needs it more. Not sure if I have expressed myself properly, it's just she always thinks of others and if she can share anything, even her health, for another, she will.

Our family is meeting with Hospice today about placing mom in the hospice house. She doesn't want to go which makes it even more difficult. She is a fighter but doesn't have much time left.

We are struggling with knowing that mom's death is soon while the Christmas season is starting. We certainly know that, because of what Jesus did for us, mom is going to a far better place and the sorrow we have is for us, not her. Our family still intends to celebrate Christmas. How can we not celebrate what God did for us at Christmas? This Christmas season will be different but we will try to keep our focus on what Christmas is really about; "for unto you is born this day, in the city of David, a Savior which is Christ the Lord..."

Thanks for letting me vent and give myself a pep talk. Have a blessed day all.
You all are in my thoughts and prayers.

This time of the year, I am so thankful for MMC. I have 'met' so many wonderful people here. We are all so very different but share one common interest which brings us all together - it's great!

I remember last year I was so down in the dumps as soon as the evening hours approached on Christmas. I know that it was still Christmas Day, but I was finally facing the fact that it was almost all over. It's hard to look forward to something for months and months and then for it just to end. That's why Christmas Eve has been and always will be my favorite day of the year. The anticipation of Christmas is the best feeling ever. Anyway, I can remember when it hit midnight and I was seriously feeling so down. I logged on here and chatted with some of you who were feeling the exact same way. Most people really have no idea what the feeling is that we experience because they simply do not care about Christmas the way that we do. I started the countdown in my head even though it was a long 364 days away.

This time of year for me is filled with fun, excitement, joy, and anticipation. It's nice to share it with people outside of my family who truly appreciate it as much as I do! Heck - I get excited over wrapping paper, guys. I buy it like it's going out of style. I think I have enough wrapping paper at this point to last me 12 years.

Now that the season has officially 'kicked off' I really need to start my shopping and decorating! The decorations are coming out this weekend and the lights are going up - woo hoo!

Have a GREAT day, everyone!!
I feel the sae way about everything Jennifer. Christmas Eve is also my favourite day of the year, it's the climax of the season for me! I am also comforted in knowing that you all will be here when those January blues kick in. I bet you are looking forward to weekend, I will be pulling my decorations down from the loft on Saturday!

Hey Frosty, been thinking of you and wondering how you all are coping. Again, I am so sorry for your loss. Keep courage friend.

Enjoy the concert!!

Glad to hear you are feeling better!

How exciting! can't wait to hear what she has planned!

The Building 19 was so dismal that Mr. suggested going to the Christmas Tree Shop so we could get a cheerier bargain-shopping vibe. I got two Christmas mugs. (I've got about five or six now. If I had the space to display them, I'd start a collection.) Really enjoyed shopping there---Christmas stuff everywhere now, of course! It was a great pick-me-up.

I'm off from work tomorrow, but I have to get up early so be ready when the tree guys come to take down the tree that we found out is rotten inside. I've been anxious to get that taken care of before a winter storm causes it to fall on the house, cars, and/or neighbor's house. It'll be a long, noisy, expensive day, but it'll be worth it to get that load off my mind.

It took me quite a while to get through all the posts after work. Seeing all the Christmas camaraderie here does my soul good. I hope you folks know I love you all.
I ended up at the Christmas Tree Shops yesterday too, that's where I found the Christmas tissues. I love browsing around in there, especially this time of the year.
I hope everything goes well when the tree comes down and that you are still able to enjoy your day off!
