Tis The Season to be...??

Things have been a whirl wind for the past three weeks, my mother is not doing well and it's with a very heavy heart I tell you, she will be going into assisted living on Tuesday. I have been traveling back and forth to Virginia, with my last stay being over a week. It's so hard to have to make arrangements for something you just don't believe is happening to you or your mom and truly never thought would.

My family and friends will be spending Christmas Day with my mom in her "new home", hoping she will settle in and feel it's a bit like home. We are moving her things tomorrow and she will come on Tuesday, I would like to have everything in place and ready for her. She will be able to have her wonderful companion, Gus, her cat, who has been a true friend for the past 9-1/2 years, so I am hoping he will help her be more comfortable in her new surroundings. He will be there waiting for her at the door! This is one of the hardest things I have ever had to do in my life, but am thankful she is still here and can enjoy Christmas with us, once again and hope she will have many more holidays with us.

Remember what Christmas is all about. It's about family, friends, sharing, caring and loving each other every day, not just at Christmas time, but all year long!

May each of you have a wonderful Christmas!
