It's November...

I was opening a big trunk in our bedroom to unpack the Christmas items I have saved through the years for the holidays. There are two that I will never part with from Linda (who passed away suddenly May '09). You know how you open each tissue wrapped item and get that "Oh, I'd forgotten I had these"...well, that's what I was thinking as I opened these precious bundles...

One was an angel Linda found...she repainted the blonde hair to black and gave it to Beth. The other she was bursting at the seams with excitement to give to me (and Bob), was a Christmas Tree Farm Scene...

.


They are both reminders of how much love Linda put into everything she did. It wasn't money, but downright thoughtfulness that set her apart from others.


This is a very trying month for me as my sister Martha died a year ago next Monday, on my birthday. I have decided that for me to sit around or sleep due to depression is wasting the life Martha and Linda so desperately wanted to live. So now I am willing myself to be positive, clean out the weeds in my life, and stop procrastinating. Life can be short and fleeting.



Happy Thanksgiving. Hold your family and friends close.


And, Mr. President, Bring Our Troops Home.
Thank you to our Military for their service.
God Bless America!
