I just want to wish all of you a lovely holiday and a wonderful time together with your families. Of all the things that Christmas means to me, the joy of family together is the most important to me.
My daughter and I have spent two days in the kitchen: fudge, caramels, chocolate covered pretzels, peanut butter-date balls, cinnamon rolls, pies. And the memories of family members who have gone are with us strong. Family is the one thing that sticks with us forever. What a blessing that God has given us.
I hope to visit with you all again in the near future (certainly not so long as this last interlude was). Merry Christmas and God's Blessings to all of you.
