Christmas 2012

It feels like Christmas today. It's getting colder by the minute, but that's not the reason. It feels like Christmas today because David came home. It feels so good to have him home. Then Steve will fly in on Saturday, so our family of four will be complete under one roof -- our roof. It feels good. So, tonight I'm thankful for family -- for 2 great boys -- for David and Steve -- and for the love of a Savior whose birth we celebrate.

Sisters. Well, I can't write much about sisters; I don't have any. I do have some special girlfriends who make me wonder what it would have been like to have a sister. I guess we would have fought and argued and disagreed. I suppose we would have stuck up for each other and shared stuff and loved each other too. I don't know, but it's fun to think about.

The reason I thought about sisters is because my mom and her sister are having a sleepover this weekend. My Aunt Grace came to see my mom. Here's what they looked like through the years. I'm sure life didn't turn out as they imagined. But it looks like they started out filled with hope and smiles and a little mischief. I hope they still are. I wonder what those 2 are up to tonight? I think they're enjoying being sisters.
