My nephew's father in law is out of intensive care, did not have some of the complications that can be expected with such surgery and is relatively comfortable. Things look very good for him being home by Christmas. Our nephew's wife has recovered from her pneumonia so she can visit her dad in the hospital.
Somehow the tinsel, ads for extravagant gifts, the usual stress many associate with this season just float over the surface of my mind and heart and gain no foothold. I know that I am blessed with love and health. I know that I have caring friends around the world.
