It’s December 12, 2014 and for the first time in my life I am not finished shopping, wrapping or have a batch of cookies made. Somehow I’m not upset. Maybe I’ve finally learned the meaning of Christmas and seriously, I must be the slowest learner. I’ve decided that one of the traditions I hold dear could be better served with modification, Christmas Cookies! God, I love them, but I only need to bake enough for a few days and not a month’s worth that we will incessantly eat during the holidays, because God forbid they go to waste. So I’m baking just enough and only a few more.
I always look forward to Christmas Eve. It’s very special to me. We begin our Christmas celebration with Mass, and end with a gathering of special and dear friends. It really is the “most wonderful time of the year. I will be thanking God for goodness this year. It truly exists but we need a little more.
I am so happy that Sharon Sykes-Royer won one of the baskets from the Book Signing at Lovely You.
She’s picking it up today and we’ll find out what was in the one she won.
Let us know, Sharon.
What a surprise. I received a signed copy of “Sidelined” by Chuck Pagano from Karla Kerkman Miles. Since most of my reading is from the female side of cancer, I am looking forward to reading his story.
Thank you Karla, this was such a thoughtful gift.
My friend, Lisa Parks will be “Going Bald” again this year on October 17, 2014.
Lisa does this every year to support those of us going through cancer,those of lucky enough to be away from treatment for awhile and those who we lost to this disease. This is not easy for Lisa considering she is a performer, with an awesome voice, and DJ, and quite frankly doesn’t know from year to year where she will be performing on this date. But she does it regardless. Hat’s Off (or maybe Hair Off) to Lisa, one of the nicest and giving people I know.
Please visit her page. (Oh and by the way, she also volunteers at the SPCA)
