A touching momnt

This morning Shreve (Daily Coyote) informed me that there was a Jacquei Lawson animated Christmas Card from Barbara. I managed to bring it forth and it filled me with so much inner feeling of gratitude  and love for the human race. First of all, it was a work of Art. Santa coming down the chimney in a cloud of ashes. The two dogs assisting, the beautiful setting, everything helped fill me with remembrance of Christmases past. When the children were young and when Sam was alive. I sat for a long time, with tears in my eyes feeling thankful and happy. Barbara thank you, and Shreve, thank you. I tried to Email Barbara, but nothing would make it go.

It now turns out that we will have one granddaughter here for Christmas. Tory who is becoming a Service woman, (Coast Guard) will be here with Anna and Steve. She is stationed in Petaluma Ca. and will be driving up. Pray for good weather for her. Now I will have to make Swedish Coffee Cake. Tory learned how to make it when she was a young teenager. (Don't tell her, hers is better than mine.)

They leave to return to Bainbridge Island on the 28th of Dec. After that I will send out another blog. Merry Christmas to all my blog readers.

Dear Svensto,
I did get your lovely emails & sent you an email back. You probably will have to check your junkmail folder to find it, but it's there.
Wishing you the very best,
Barbara
