Go Ahead, Make My Day

What has made "your" day today?

Two things come to mind for me.

When my Grandlove, Ben, arrived this morning, the first thing he said to me was, " I and me missed you Grandma! " He was teasing me. We have been trying to get him to say " I " instead of " me " when he refers to himself, ever since he began talking. Our English language is a difficult one to learn, isn't it? The rest of the day, he went back to using "me". I had to sigh a few times and just agree with him and say, "Me too." No wonder this poor little 3 yr. old is confused, when Grandma can't even get it right.

The other thing that made my day, was a lengthy phone conversation with my sister Mel. We sure have more in common than I realized. Loveya Mel. Hope your day was a great one.

One more thing, I started my Christmas baking.Not that I wanted to, but because our family Christmas will be here with our 5 kids and their families. All together we total 23. With all of the programs, parties, family get-togethers, shopping, baking, etc. we are gathering around our tree 2 weekends Early. I'd say, I'd better get in the Christmas spirit.

I'm actually looking foreward to doing the material part of Christmas early. (I know, this one who does not do ' breaking tradition ' easily.) It will leave a much less hustled time getting ready for church and Christmas Eve at the farm. Now, THAT'S what Christmas is all about for me.

Thanks for listening and

What a sweet grandlove.... He'll learn the language ---as he grows... It can't be easy!!!!

You are so fortunate to have all of your kids at home together during the holidays. It will work better ahead of Christmas ---so that you can truly relax and enjoy the birth of Christ on Christmas Eve/Day....

23 people for your celebration???? That is incredible.

Have a great day getting in the MOOD.

Well now, maybe if I start baking up some Christmas cookies it will help get me in the holiday spirit. Or maybe a tree, or some decorating? I guess it is that time of year, however; I like to think of every day as Christmas!

Whew! It takes an open and hospitable spirit to host that many people for a meal. I perceive that you have the heart for it. Maybe it's a spiritual gift called hospitality? God Bless you and give you much reward through the holidays.

I am oh so impressed that you are playing hostess to so many people - bless you. I received a phone call from my beautiful daughter-in-law thanking me for a pair of gloves that I sent her earlier this week. When I saw them I thought how much she would enjoy them ... and she did. So many things to be thankful and grateful for but being here at this moment is tops on my list. Have another great-full day.

Enjoyed hearing about what made your day, Dar!

I have been thinking about Christmas baking this week, but mostly just trying to decide what goodies I want to make.

Our son and his family from Maine will be arriving late Christmas night to spend several days with us. Lord willing, our daughter and her family from DE will be here sometime during that week...please pray about that with me. I wouldn't desire anything more than to have all of our family here under the roof of this tiny house!

Love to you,
