A Blessed and Merry Christmas and Sympathy for David's family

Well today did not start out good. Chris has informed me that her boyfriend's mother died late last night. Thank you for the prayers and David can really use them now. Chris said he is better today, but most of us know what is to come next. Death is no stranger to us at Christmas time. I think we have had our share.
Today I am Blessed that I have my son here and the other son and family will be here tomorrow. We just visited them and the ride there was really rough on my spine, but the pain meds have kicked in and it's much better. They want me to bake cookies tonight and I just don't know how to tell them NO, so with a smile, I will bake them with their help.
My Blessings and Joys:
I have a roof over my head, while others are forced to sleep outdoors.
I have food to eat, while many will go hungry tonight.
I have a God that loves me, but there are many who don't know Him.
I have warm clothes to wear while others have none.
I have a small family that loves me very much and there are those whose family have turned their backs on them.
I have friends who take me as I am with unconditional love, while I have lost friends because they couldn't handle my bipolar.
I have so much to be thankful for and the only thing I really want for Christmas is Love, True love that comes from the heart and that is my gift to all of you who accept me as I am.

Merry Christmas from our house to yours.
Love, Hugs, and many Blessings. Pat

I'm sorry to hear of your distress, but you are NOT too late to enter. I was just going to draw the name in a few minutes. I'll announce the winner tonight or tomorrow. Wish you well, sugar. Truly I do...

Connie, that's okay. With David's mom dying, my epidural, I've been in such grief and pain, but it is finally easing off, so tomorrow will be a good day for me---everyone will be here filled with love and blessings. Love Ya, Sweet Chick, Pat
