        Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all.
        and to all of you waiting procedures or surgery or new hearts, I really wish you all best for a positive outcome in the new year.
        Every great thing that has ever happened since the beginning of time has started as a single thought in someones mind.
        So if you are capable of thought then you are capable of great things
        Good luck and stay well.

            Merry Christmas to ALL. I hope that Santa grants all your wishes and dreams this year.

            I again find myself grateful to celebrate a Christmas with my family - all of whom are healthy and well. I am a little misty today as my nephew called to ask if he could bring his girlfriend home to celebrate Christmas with us. I only wish his mother was here to see this day. Not only is he bringing Kyra home for x-mas he has just graduated college and is now a teacher (looking for a job...but officially a teacher!).

            May your Christmas be wonderful and may the memory of those no longer with us join you on Christmas and send you lots of love from beyond our eyes view.

            God Bless you all and stay well.
