Well today was my last day here visiting with family. I am anxious to get home but have really enjoyed spending time with Shirley. It has got to be good to be around people who make you laugh so often. It seems like every day Shirley and I find more and more to laugh about. I am grateful for the chance to have had this vacation and time to visit with extended family. The thing I don't do well is say good bye, I guess it is because you never know when you will get the chance to come back. But it has been a wonderful experience and I am grateful for the chance to get a break away for awhile.
So tonight I will leave you with a few quotes and then I have to run and get packing. I get to see Jeff and the kids tomorrow, I am excited.
Christmas is filled with special joys,
And the very best of all
Is contemplating those dear to us,
And the memories we recall.
We often think at Christmas time
Of people, affectionately,
And we realize how blessed we are
To have you in our family.

"Christmas is a time when you get homesick - even when you're home." ~Carol Nelson
"It is Christmas in the heart that puts Christmas in the air." ~W.T. Ellis
