Heading Into the Holiday

Thank you all so much for your prayers and encouragement! I haven't had too much time to blog lately. I did get out for a nice little walk with the dogs this evening and took this instagram photo.  I've been busy watching my boy play soccer.
Their team finished second in a very competitive month long tournament.
And my boy (center) was named to the All Tournament team.
In Christmas news, I ordered my Christmas cards back on Thanksgiving and have mailed some international cards, but haven't even started addressing my domestic ones. And this will be the year where I did 90% of my Christmas shopping standing at the gift card kiosk at the grocery store! On the upside, I did package them all up and mail them to Southern California in time for them to get to our families. I still have to wrap the presents that I'll be distributing here. Maybe tomorrow. I hope you're having a good time as you head into the holidays,

I am sure that everyone understands that you have a lot on your mind this Christmas time and being a proud mum watching your boy playing a game he loves is far more important that writing cards! The important thing about the holidays is being with those you love and enjoying time as a family.
Happy Christmas!

Oh, Rinda, I have been thinking about you so much lately, and every time I do I send a hug and a prayer your way. This is definitely a year to be easy on yourself and just go with the flow. I'm praying that you and your family have a wonderful Christmas together, dear friend!

Thinking of you!!!

That's such an achievement and well done to him! And to you too, for managing all that you have to right now. Thinking of you and hoping for warm, restful and restorative moments for you ...

Well done Henry - he must be quite some player and team mate to keep getting these kind of awards!!

Merry Christmas Rinda - I hope you don't get too overwhelmed by Xmas prep - it's really NOT important in the grand scheme of things. Spending quality time with Paul and the kids is. I hope that 2013 brings you better and better news and that this time next year ALL troubles will be faint memories.

Hello Rinda, Haven't had time to blog or read blogs but I did want to check yours before Christmas. May the Lord bless your family and grant you the strength and strong shoulders to bear up under all that you and Paul are facing. xxx
