This sweet darling of a baby turned 11 years old today. He had a really hard time tonight at bedtime accepting the fact that it was all over. He said, "I wish I could go back in time and start this day over again." His laments were met with sympathy. When I look at those cheeks and remember that warm cuddly body on mine, I'd like to start the last 11 years over again.

A little update on Mark's mom...surgery was postponed until Wednesday because they needed to do a couple more tests before the triple bypass. She is in good spirits and so thankful for all the visits, phone calls, and prayers. She feels loved!
This month, I am joining my friend,Sarah Jane, in writing daily about things that bring joy during this lovely, peaceful holiday season.
I saw a GAP ad the other day that I shamelessly "borrowed" for my titles this coming month. Ironically, if I can stay out of the GAP and other such places, I will most definitely be more alert to what brings REAL, lasting joy.
