It takes a spot of courage to stand up tall and a bit of derring-do to rise when you fall

Merry Christmas!

I am enjoying a wonderful Christmas and festive times with my husband's family. All of his siblings are together, which doesn't happen all that often, and all of the grandkids on that side are together. This equals: loud screaming bursts of laughter, debates, games and more games, staying up late, sleeping in, eating and then more eating.

I consider myself to be one of the luckiest people on earth to have married into such an amazingly wonderful family. From them I have learned more about kindness and caring and sharing and loving and empathy than I have ever known before. My parents began the teaching of these basics, and this family of sweet husband mine has willingly, lovingly, taken an interest in my continuing education. Top-notch instruction. They're all top drawer.

I hope that everyone else is having a great Christmas day and an excellent holiday season. Be safe! Have fun! Enjoy! Send me the leftovers.
