Ho Hum the Holidays

Every Christmas brings a mix of emotions for me. I guess it does the same for everyone else too? My father's birthday was Christmas day before he passed away in 2000. I received a precious gift named Pepper Ruffin (see his picture on my sparkpage) on Christmas day 2004. This year with the hard economic times, gifts aren't feasible for my family. My husband lost his job several months ago so money is tight. But as I sit here and reflect I must say I'm grateful to be alive and well. I'm grateful for my family and all of the blessings we have. Things could be worse...I guess!
