I’m enjoying Christmas on a cold day in a warm house. To keep my feet warm I have a space heater close by, with a blanket tossed on top to keep me toasty, otherwise they would feel like ice cubes. But how happy and blessed am I to have a roof over my head, to have food on the table, and to have a daughter and grandchildren that love me.
In church on Sunday we heard about a family of twelve children who had just lost their home in a fire. Such tragedy breaks my heart. Another sad story was in the news about a low-income mother who had been saving up so she could at least give one present each to her children. To keep them safe —she thought— the lady kept them in the trunk of her car. What a shock when she opened the trunk and the presents were gone! How cruel can people be to do such a thing!
I’m sharing some of my favorite pictures from this day. Please know that I’m very thankful and humbled that I’m alive and well. This coming summer it will be five years since I finished the cancer treatments. I don’t dwell on it and seldom think about it, but I’m a cancer survivor! This day, as all days, is a day of praise. That you, my cyber friend, are reading this is even another blessing added to the list. I hope you are having a blessed Christmas!
