Thanksgiving collageOn this Christmas Day, as I ponder the miracle of my Lord’s Birth, and rejoice in His gift to us, it also allows me some quiet moments to pause and ponder.
I glanced back this week at some old  pictures around the house (above are a few of our annual Thanksgiving Pictures taken every Black Friday at either the Christmas Tree farm or Mass General Store in Boone, NC.)
I realize that I blinked and our little boys became young men. It’s been an eye opening year.
I want to cherish the moments, accept the challenges that come with living Life to its fullest, embrace the blessings that have graciously been given, and wish all of you the most Merry of Christmases.
Much love from our family to yours,
