Merry Christmas!

December 8, 2009

Well, the Christmas Season has crept right upon us and I hope this finds all of you in the Christmas spirit and enjoying all those traditions we find ourselves engaging in year after year. It’s such a great time for remembering and enjoying the wonderment of salvation and the birth of the Savior that provided it for us.

Many of you continue to ask how my Mom is and what’s going on with her now. So this will be a brief update.

She is doing much better for now! She is resting better, eating better and has cut back on the pain meds they initially had put her on. She is in good spirits and continues to trust our Good and Heavenly Father for His will in her life. While the Hospice nurses are doing all they can to make her comfortable and also “prepare” her for the end. She is comforted by the fact that in Christ, her life is hidden and she is already prepared for whatever may come.

She is looking at life as being further down the road now and is sure she will be here for Christmas. That is so nice to see and hear from her! Thanks so much for all the encouragement and prayers.

Merry Christmas to you all!

Karen

    Hi Judith!!!!

  2. Hey! So what are the chances of getting the youngest girls together for a play-date over Christmas? Take care and stay warm!

  3. We hope that you and your families will have a Wonderful Christmas and that the good lord looks upon you and watches over you. Will Mike be home for Christmas? We will think of you all. I am going to be a great grammaw in Aug. Brandon & Ali are expecting. And Heather announced last night that she & Brian are engaged. So our family gets a little bigger. This will be a good Christmas. Love you all

  4. Hi Aunt Shirley! God bless your family too. I’ve so enjoyed keeping up with some of you all on FB. Mike will be home so we will all be together. Congrats on the new baby coming and also on the new Grandson-in-law. That is great! I haven’t forgot your tea ring recipe.

  5. I’m so glad that your mother is here to celebrate Christmas with you this year. Merry Christmas to all of you. Look forward to spending time with you guys next week.
