The Night Before.. The Night Before CHRISTmas

... All the presents are wrapped, slim and few that there are. Love was put into each bow, twinkle and star. Money was tight but thoughts were grand, I hope they like what I put in there hand....

I am happy to say that my parents are with us in Arizona this year for the holidays. I love having them around and I know we are lucky to still have them.. they are 82 and 85 and still going strong! My son also made it out of NJ before the snow storm and surprised me a day early. He and my daughter put it together. That was the best present the two of them could give me. We are all together for the holiday. Only missing my big brother and his kids and 2 nephews and their families. Maybe we can ALL be together in one place soon!

I am wishing everyone a blessed and warm CHRISTmas and a New Year that will find us with the strength and endurance to face whatever this mortal life gives to us.

This was a tough year for my family. Today (12/23) was my first Nephew Patricks birthday. He would have been 35. We lost Patrick in March. The demon of drugs, depression and social pressures got to him. He fought a long battle and tried with all his mite. His soul needed resting and he taught most of us a lesson. That was his purpose here. He fulfilled it and now he is in peace. I miss knowing your here but I KNOW your here. Thank you Patrick for teaching ME a lesson.. yea I know.. "Dun worry bout it" (in your beautiful Brooklyn accent).
