Merry, Merry Christmas

I hope everyone has a blessed, happy and safe Christmas.

We have my Dad visiting, in our first Christmas here at home in 5 years, which is fun- although, I think he’s bored, lol, I can’t *do* much still. We’re having a nice visit anyway, so that’s cool.

There’s something so nice about having all four kids at home. Even when Jeremy is simply at school, which is of course where he belongs now, there’s always the low-level awareness of something not quite right. So, when he’s here, even when we’re not seeing much of him (girlfriends, you know), it’s just so much nicer.

Tonight, we have our service at 10:00, which is a wonderfully peaceful, beautiful time. I’m so looking forward to it- it’s been a long time since we’ve been there, so I’m anxious to see if it’s as great as I remember. Three of the kids are serving on the altar, too, which is interesting. We’ve become known as the “Altar serving family”. Works for us, as there is another family that we call the “Music for any occasion” family; every one of them is multi-talented in intruments, and sing beautifully as well.

About it for updating for now, I’m just hanging out in a collar, another month at least- but getting better.

Hope you all have a wonderful, wonderful Christmas!

    So glad you’re healing nicely, even if you’re not quite ready to run a marathon. You’ll get there – healed, that is. Not sure if you’re into marathons 🙂

    Merry Christmas to you and yours.

    Hope your Christmas was high on the scale of Wonderfulness & Merriment.

    We just got back home from seeing my family a couple states away. Kinda bittersweet; Mom is shockingly downhill from the last time I saw her, and we had the ‘family meeting’ with Dad and the siblings to talk thru what we’re going to do about her situation. But it was good, even still. First time in many a year that we got all seven of us, and our spouses, together at the same time, and that was rich.

  7. Dave says:

    So Gone- Thank you!
    Desmond- I’m sorry about your Mom, that’s not easy; we went through it, including the “family meetings” etc, a couple years ago. I know it hurts, no matter how prepped. I also know how great it is when family gathers round, that is rich and something to be treasured.

    Well dang, I come over here expecting tons of posts to catch up on so I could spaz attack you, but you haven’t been writing much since my last visit. Hard for me to repay the 10 or so comments you’ve left for me unless I do this….

  9. Lil Bit says:

    Staying at home for the holidaze ruuuuuuules! lol

  10. Lil Bit says:

    Glad to read you have all the boys at home to celebrate — I’m sure that makes it all the better. =)

  11. Lil Bit says:

    Your Dad’s probably not as bored as ya might think…

  12. Lil Bit says:

    Wait. Is he still there? He might be bored by now. lol

  13. Lil Bit says:

    Did the “Altar Family” serve well?

  14. Lil Bit says:

    Nice to see that you’re able to get outta the house now! … that’s an improvement, right?

  15. Lil Bit says:

    Hope you don’t feel like a pet who’s returned from a visit to the vet, with that collar on. 😉

  16. Lil Bit says:

    Why do I have a bunch of purple angry faces when I post?
    They should be purple winkies and smilies instead.

  17. Lil Bit says:

    Hope your holiday season has been a joyous time, spent with those you love and eating lots of yummy food! =)

    Happy Recovery too!
