Hey, you! All ready for Christmas? What are your gift ideas this year? My kids are at the age where they're mostly getting clothes this year, a few other little things, a breadmaker for my oldest, a juicer for Bill's oldest, toys for the baby, earrings for the girls. I wanted to get Bill the Rosetta Stone set for Spanish since he has so many Spanish speaking folks on his ships, but man that stuff is pricey! I'll start saving up for it for his birthday in Sept. Since Bill will be home (third time in eight years on this job), we're having a house full of company, our big extended family for dinner. Bill will be deep frying a couple turkeys and we'll be baking a ham, as well. Will you be cooking a big dinner? Sending much Christmas cheer your way!! *HUGS*
Thank you so much! I hope your Thanksgiving was as lovely as you are, dear one. Bill had to return to his ship the day before Thanksgiving, but he will be home for Christmas for only the third time in eight years. We are so excited. God bless you!!!
It's been a crazy time, with such serious needs among our loved ones. It's easy to lose yourself in the shuffle sometimes, isn't it? You are such a dear for thinking of me and I appreciate you SO very much. How happy it would make me to get to hug you one of these days. As Thanksgiving speeds toward us, I give thanks to God for your friendship. Have a blessed time of giving thanks, of counting blessings, of projecting forward to the blessings that surely await.
