Christmas Recap

I wish that I had made the time to get online on Christmas Day and post an entry. I tried to summarize a bit below. I can't say enough what a surprisingly beautiful and blessed Christmas we had! And why am I surprised? Isn't it just like God to make sure that the day we celebrate His gift of His Son is like that? Christmas was beautiful.

The days that have followed it? Not so much. Nothing earth shattering or even new. We're just sad and missing Seth. Grief continues to have a way of creeping up on me and catching me unawares..

Anyway, THAT's not what this post is about either. I just wanted to share a picture of a few of our multitude of blessings (above). Those of course are the physical trappings. They don't show the peace & grace bestowed upon us daily! My feeble recaps are below, if you're interested!

I have more to share. Tomorrow I'm posting about the Stocking Swap I participated in, sponsored by The Well-Rounded Woman. Stay tuned!

Blessings come in many shapes and packages, and it amazing that they can come when we least expect them.

With much love,

I just can't stop - reading and commenting. I hope you don't mind. But, I do need to. I'll come back again. All the firsts are hard, and there will always be new firsts, that he will miss. Five years later, my Harvey is going to miss his first family reunion. I am sad about that.
