There is truely a hugh need this year for families that celebtate Christmas by gift giving...My family and I decided not to exchange gifts, but, to concentrate on the "special" gifts that cannot be wrapped; love, hope, peace, and fellowship with others. My youngest son is 16 years old. The time has come for our family to "unwrap" all those precious memories of how we overcame several adverse situatons. It is time to "unwrap" all the blessings we receive from each other, love, kindness, understanding, patience, and forgiveness. We decided to focus ourselves on what we can do for others instead. We are all thankful for the opportunity this season of gift giving to be together as a family for the first time in many, many years. We have a home that is warm. We have food. Best of all we have EACH other. Merry Christmas!!!
