We were gone most of the day yesterday getting the trailer hitch put on the vehicle, then a Christmas program at church my nephew was in (it was cute), and finally a little bit of shopping. Talk about busy. When we pulled in to the restaurant, we noticed cars backing up on I-90 and heard that there had been a 15 car accident (1 semi), then later there were 2 other accidents on I-90.
I'll never understand why people don't slow down and pay attention when they're driving, especially in snow. It's like they forget and in doing that can cause others pain.
I picked up 2 more gifts, so I'm nearly done but the ones we get for exchange. I'm kind of down because my husband's neice decided that side wouldn't exchange gifts; I never get gifts from my husband for anything special ... ok taken out to eat, but I mean actual gifts I can sit and use/look at when I want to..something to treasure for years to come; and I really had wished they'd do it on his side.
I'm really tired of things changing so much from the time my Dad passed, I miss the old ways..oh well, life goes on.
Our daughter sent me copies of the card she made, using her Golden Retriever, and it's sooo cute. I really love it and after she sends them out, maybe I'll post it on here.
I hope you all remember that smile that'll get you through the darkest hours, and to give to another instead of "wanting"..that's the gift of Christmas.
