Made it through Christmas. 

I spent Christmas Eve at my oldest son and his family's house while they went to my daughter in law's father's house.  It was good.  They came home about 10 pm and we talked for a couple of hours then went to bed. 

Spent Christmas Day with them and my middle son.  Big breakfast, presents, family time then lasagna for dinner.  It was good.

My only regret is that I didn't go to church on Christmas Eve.  Didn't want to go alone this year.  In hindsight I know it would have been fine.  The members of our church have been very supportive.

Ahhh well...

For everyone dealing with sadness, I pray for you to have the strength to persevere.

I hope everyone had as good a Christmas as possible.

Merry Christmas...

As you can imagine, this Christmas is a bit different than the Christmas I'm used to.  I miss my Judy.  Words cannot describe that feeling, but I know that someday we will be together again. 

I wish each and every one of you all the best at this most joyous time of the year.  God bless...
