Continued blessings

Last night as I was typing, the batteries went out on my keyboard. I couldn't find any and my husband claimed we didn't have any. This morning, faced with the prospect of finding an open gas station to buy me batteries, he miraculously came up with a few to get me by.

Nonetheless, I'm still thankful for the blessings I've been given. My girls, my husband, my family, (yes, even) my job. I'm so blessed this Christmas season and throughout the year.

These blessings all come from the Savior who was born so long ago in a busy town teeming with the activity of a royal census. Peace came to the earth in the form of a tiny baby's first cry.

Merry Christmas.

May you have a beautiful and blessed Christmas

What a month. This has been hectic all the way around. My semester ended in a full throtle hurdle. We got to the final class meeting and were so happy that we would have a few weeks off before our first class session on January 11. It was a real heartbreaker to learn that we would have to meet for group sessions over Christmas. The first one is this coming Friday. Ugghhh.

We - meaning mostly I - were dumb and didn't do our Christmas shopping early. We didn't get out of school (work) until Friday, so it has been a mad dash shopping as well. Now the girls are tucked into bed and Santa has visited and I'm going to crawl into bed with my kerchief. Next year, I promise to shop earlier.

My mother had heart bypass surgery on December 14. Fortunately, they were able to do a robotic surgery. It is truly amazing. They don't crack open the chest or cut the leg at all. She has three incisions

Starting Out

Who has time for this? Here I sit with a blog titled "Candle With Two Ends" at almost midnight. I have an assignment due, a house to clean, and 75 people headed to my house in about 40 hours for a Christmas party. This is insanity. My husband is giving my crazy looks because I'm supposed to be helping him clean and I'm in here typing. Can't seem to pull away from this digital addiction.
