I am so happy that we are once again in the Holiday Season. I love the way everyone has regards for one another, I love the special music programming on TV and the Christmas movies on the TV. I love all the holiday lights and the decorations. I love to decorate for Christmas. I love the goodies.  Though, I don’t do much anymore. My son gave me a 6 foot pre-lighted tree for Christmas in 2003 but when he bought his new home I gave it back to him and got me a 2 foot tree, one, that I could manage by myself. We don’t do elaborate gifts. If we do a gift exchange, it has to be small and mostly handmade. But I promise to be festive. My kido’s are all over 50 years of age, and if they want something they have already gone out and bought it for themselves. I feel it is silly for me to try to guess at what they want. And I give all through the year.

My dearest friend had her 85th on the 6th of December, and to celebrate, her daughter gave her the gift of a concert to go to see Andrea Bocelli. She planned every early. She called me back in the summer and ask me to reserve the 30th of November for a concert of Andrea Bocelli. Well that blew me away. That was before her mother have a sever stroke. But mom had recovered enough by the 30th of November that she could attend the concert.

We were a party of five, the birthday girl her two daughters, the best friend and the favorite niece. The niece picked me up and took me to my friend’s house, because it is a long way to my friends and I don’t drive in traffic anymore. We all went out to dinner before the concert. Anyway, the concert was wonderful. Bocelli sang my favorite arias
Be blessed to be a blessing.
