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!

Wikipedia: Frida (with variants Freda, Freedia, Frieda and Freida) is a feminine given name. In Scandinavian countries, it derives from the Old Norse name Fríða, meaning“beautiful, beloved”. In central and eastern Europe, Frida is a short form of compound names containing the Germanic element fried meaning “peace”.

I always thought my aunt was beautiful and beloved, and with her there was always peace.  I remember attending her wedding when I was 10 years old. Special memories! We always had a lot of fun together.  She liked to tease me! They say, that means she liked me a lot! A special memory was when we traveled together after Thanksgiving of 2015, to see her son’s family in New York, which included seeing a newborn grandchild!

Frieda, rest in peace!
