My Christmas Wish For You

Christmas is only 4 days away as I write this. Scott and Madison are both out for the holidays. So I'm signing off for a couple of days to make memories with my family. Enjoy and savor each moment you have this week with family and friends. In a blink of an eye they can be gone. This will be a most difficult one for my family in the loss of my sweet Aunt Glenda. (9/10)
So smile everyday. Laugh often. Hugs are really good......tell someone what they mean to you and thank God everyday for your blessings.

To my family and friends near and far...I leave you with this. Merry Christmas from my family to yours.
