I can hardly believe it's already Christmas.
It doesn't really feel like it. I'm not sure if it's the lack of snow
or exactly what, but things seem strange this year.
I have been really busy, maybe that is part of it.
I finally watched It's a Wonderful Life. I was hoping that would put me in the
Christmas mood, but it didn't so much.
I started looking through Christmas photos and found several ones that are
so cute. As my children were growing up, I was always sure to get a picture
of them at Christmas. I am missing a few years, but I am hopeful I will find
the missing pictures soon.
This is from 1986, Kristen's first Christmas
I find myself missing Kristen more than I could ever imagine.
She LOVED Christmas.
Everything reminds me of her.
I am so very thankful for the gift of Kristen.
I honestly feel that she is truly a blessing and one of the greatest
gifts our family ever received.
She gave us all so much.
Because of Kristen we know that true courage and strength exist.
that their is JOY in the smallest and most simple things.
Because of her, we all try harder to be better people.
She continues to be our star, our light in the darkness,
our shining example.
To my family and friends and to those strangers who continue
to pray and support us,
"We Wish you a Merry Christmas from Heaven and Earth."
