Happy Christmas

Photo Copyright: Maggie May

I expect most people are going to be very busy preparing for Christmas and maybe like me, will be having family to stay.
My daughter is coming over with my grandsons and the time is going by fast with last minute preparations, so I just wanted to wish everyone a Very Happy Christmas while I have a chance.

It is fairly mild here but pouring with rain and more is forecast over the holiday period. My granddaughters want snow but that seems very unlikely.

Harry will be starting chemo the day after Boxing Day so at least he will be able to eat his Christmas dinner without feeling off colour.
I usually enjoy the true meaning of the season, the carols, Nativities, children's school events and we do try to make Jesus the centre of our Christmas because that is what it is all about for us. That and family.

Wishing everyone a peaceful, joyous time whatever you are doing.

Very happy holidays to you, Maggie, and to your family also. I hope that for Harry the chemo therapy will go well and that before that, the dinner will be very tasteful and enjoyable. It is so good to spend time with your loved ones as I am experiencing now. Aren't we blessed? xox

Re your comment on my post, Maggie. I have never sent anything back—once they have printed items, they are of no use or value. I'd like to think the charities etc. would get the message—but they don't!

Wishing the same for you from here too and also, prayers for Harry that the chemo goes well -does what it is intended to do with a minimal amount of added ailments that it often brings along with it. Christmas is now past for this year but wishing you and yours only the best for the coming year. Peace be with you all.
