Joy and Sorrow

This will be in my Top 10, for photos of the year! It is a portrait of my good friend, Joe, digging the grave for my dear Mother, who lived 98 years and 22 days! What a full life she lived. Today her body will be laid in the grave. There is joy because she is in a better place. Sorrow because she will be missed. Joe knew my mother well, and they had great times together.

Fun

My 95-year-old mother is stretching out the anticipation as she marvels at the wrapping paper on her gifts. I told her if she doesn’t hurry up, it will be Christmas till she gets the gifts opened! Of course it was Christmas! She had so much fun, as we also did, watching her excitement!

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to all our friends, whether virtual or otherwise! Trusting it will be a time of joy, hope and peace as many of you will be surrounded by family and loved ones.

Mixed feelings for us with funerals this week for a cousin, and a cousin’s husband. Christmas to remind us of the greatest gift of all, When God sent us his Son!!! The week will culminate with the wedding of a good friend! So may God give comfort to those that need comforting this season!
