And now, a word from our sponsor…

Kathleen says,

“Wishing everyone the merriest Christmas and a Happy New Year.  Thank you for all your wonderful support you have sent me this year. I cant tell you how much it means to me.  It took until the 24th, but I did get my tree up and decorated.  My brother Drew and his partner Richard did a beautiful job decorating the outside of the house”

Christmas is a big deal for her. She really loves it. She enjoys the food, the cooking, the tree. We dont really do much presents for each other. We are at that age where we truly feel we have all the “stuff” we want (certainly more than we need). It is the company of family and friends that is important now. Although Kathleen did have a lot of fun buying all sorts of little things for her friend’s daughters 🙂

So, where ever you are this holiday season, Merry Christmas / Happy holidays to you. Its been a tough year for Kathleen and I, but our friends and family really helped us get through it.

    Wishing both of you and your family a wonderful Christmas. Your tree looks beautiful Kathleen. So nice that we have a little skiff of snow to make it look Christmassy too. Glad that you are back on track for your treatment. Hope to see you very soon.

    Merry Christmas Kathleen and Mike!  Your tree is beautiful, so happy to hear you were able to get it up and decorated. We had a nice Christmas with family and friends – and of course, lots of good food.  Wishing you all the best in the New Year – I continue to pray and think of you often.  Hugs, Marg

    Dear Kathleen and Mike, What a lovely message from “our sponsor” and indeed a wonderful reminder of who and what is important in life especially at this time of giving. Such a warm and peaceful photo of you, Kathleen enjoying the lights and beauty of your Christmas tree. I am thinking that Ms. Betty and Mr. Orville must like the tree as well. 😉 Very happy to hear that you are all in the company of your loving family. Sending big hugs, lots of love and all good wishes to you all from a most beautifully snow covered Ottawa.
