Christmas 2

We had our family Christmas here yesterday. Everyone was here except my brother in law & niece. It was a wonderful time and we all enjoyed ourselves visiting and just being with each other. I found that yesterday was the worst day yet for missing Dennis. I cooked the entire meal except one pie. I know exactly what Dennis would have been doing if he had been here with me. He enjoyed cooking and helping me cook. He would have been totally involved with all of it. PLUS we would have had a least one more potato dish (sweet potatoes) and some type of jello salad. Neither of which I did. Everyone felt the loss of not having Dennis with us for the day. We have had Christmas here at our home for the past two years. So although we all felt sadness, we all did enjoy being with each other & being together. As Willie & I talked today, you just never know what tomorrow may bring. It is so important to be with those you love and are close to whenever you can. Do not miss an opportunity because everything can change extremely quickly..........you just don't know..................

How true, we never know what tomorrow will bring us… Maybe that is a good thing, because if we knew we may stop living…

Wishing you and Willie a prosperous New Year filled with good thoughts health and happiness,
Veronika

Thank you Veronika. I am looking forward to a New Year and ending this one. Say "hi" to everyone in class when it starts!!

I happily will do so. We start up next Thursday… Only a few more weeks left in the semester and we’re busy as ever. I finally got the hang of that machine-knitting venture. It is actually fun when figured out all the options how to do something as simple as decrease or ktog-bl and so on. I’m still learning….
HAPPY NEW YEAR

Happy New Year, Wanda and Willie. We had our big party at Phil and Ellen's home last night. Lots of fun. Wish you were here.
