Happy Friday ! sending you all my

Very BEST wishes for a blessed Christmas and joyous holiday season.

Even facing mounting difficulties in the New Year we all still have a lot to be thankful for. My family has chosen to focus on our "haves" instead of our "have nots". It is easy for us because we have been to other countries where people live in card board boxes, huts made of tin or have no shelter at all. Simple luxuries, like fresh water and indoor plumbing, are not even in the realm of possibility to many. Mothers watch their babies die because they can not feed them. THAT is worth crying over.

We are taking a break from blogging and will be back after the holidays...we are spending our time with what is really important to us, our loved ones. Thank you for sharing this year with me and for all of your visits and your very much appreciated sweet comments.
My wish for you: Many "haves" to be thankful for, a loving family around you and peace and contentment in your hearts. (())
