    Hi Char! I see you had a nice day on the 11th and I feel your joy. Then I went to Mauri's blog and saw you had a crappy day on the 12th! What a difference a day makes! Here's hoping that today will bring you great joy and laughter.

    Char, This is a wonderful idea. I just stopped to thank you for all your good wishes. I am almost ready to head out for my surgery and had to stop by to thank you for posting on my blogs.
May God's blessings continue to pour over you now and always.

    Char you are such an inspiration to this team and to other members, and I am glad you took the initiative to do this and set a good example for everyone else.

I did give goodies to those who post frequently and decided not to give any to anyone who had not posted, I may have been wrong by that thought, but I figure if they truely wanted to be family they would drop us a line ONCE in a while. Granted some may be too shy to post or too busy, but if they post on other teams why can't they post here. Some have never posted at all yet joined, so how to reach them? By what you are doing.

I will be sending out an all team email shortly about the holiday season to encourage them to drop by for support and to give support. But what your doing is even better. Thanks for caring enough to do something about it !!! Love ya huggsss, Lindie emoticon

    Char - You're right... as long as you have each other... that's all that counts! Kevin & I don't buy for each other. We can't afford it. Plus if we need something during the year we get it then. Christmas time is for our grandkids mainly.... we will buy our kids a gift certificate & maybe some cash.... for my Dad we buy him some food & a certificate for groceries or to go out to eat. He loves it better than expensive gifts! Keep your wonderful spirit of Christmas glowing! I love you Char. Marla

    Char sounds like you have a lot to be thankful for. Yes when the kids go it doesnt seem like Christmas with out them. I dont know if we will do much when the gKs are grown. Dh put my gold reindeer and My blow up bear out dont know when he'll get to the trees out there though. Dh is smart saying no credit cards we are trying to limit their use also. I hope you have a wonderful christmas emoticon emoticon

    I know what you mean about how it feels when the kids leave the nest and then evetually you find you fill that gap some what. Good plan for your present. I got pic frames at dollar store to give to family pics of the grand kids that I bought in the summer, might not seem like much but there you go. I am also going to attempt to make rice crispy squares with chocolate as well you do the best you can when you can, and its about being together anyway . Hugggsss, Lindie

    Oh my dear, you deserve a medal!!! What a wonderful person you are to basically turn the other cheek! My hat is definitely off to you! I truly enjoyed your post and I appreciate your sharing it. It will help me to control myself the next time something like this happens to me. What an inspiration you are and do be proud of yourself, you are a person of character in a world sorely lacking!
