Hello friends !! Although I haven't posted in awhile, I have been busy visiting your blogs, wrapping Christmas presents and decorating for the holidays. The presents were sent by Greyhound yesterday to lil bug in Calgary. She and her parents are off to Toronto for Christmas. We are hoping to skype on December 25. This time of the year is hard on me as I usually get depressed, probably SAD but also too busy and I hate crowds etc. This year after a wedding and a new grandbaby, we spent too much money. However,I have had time to spend reflecting on what I am grateful for...happiness in a marriage, new beginnings for my son and dil, new birth for daughter and spouse..most of all that I am healthy, loved and look forward to each day. I am blessed by my parents, ages 86 and 87, in my life..plus my dear MIL, 89, friends of+40 years of loving and who still like me with all my warts and quirks...so all in all I have a good life of love, caring and creativity. Although, I can still feel envious with people who are better off fiancially..life is good. Thank you my blog friends for words of encouragement, laughter and sometimes just a "swift kick in the pants" as my Dad would say.....Here is the latest picture of my lil bug..she is 6 months old..Her face is blurred as she never stops moving..how cute her hair clip...tata..
