Christmas 2008 has been a good one, despite my initial misgivings. I received a care package from my sister-in-law. I spent time with friends and family. We had a great meal of turkey, baked sweet potatoes and green beans with pine nuts. I watched some Christmas movies, including "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" and one of the 12 showings of "A Christmas Story."
Thank you to those who made my holiday season better than I thought it could be without my mom. I hope you all had as good a day as I did -- or better.
God bless us, every one.
