Merry Christmas or Happy Hanukkah

Posted on: December 22, 2016

Just wanted to take a brief moment to wish my 

Dear Readers a Happy Holiday Season. 

This is by far the toughest with my sister passing away 

so unexpectedly last month, finding joy where I can. 

I found a silly Christmas sweater that was in her closet with the tags still on

and I know that means she would have come in on Christmas morning wearing it. 

My dress form which is traditionally dressed with a Santa Suit 

has a new look for the season:  


It even has a bell on the hood and a button to push at the tummy for music.  

It was so fun when my 16 yr old son and 25 yr old daughter discovered this with me 

and we all giggled and they both tried it on.  We delighted in imagining my sister bouncing through 

the door on Christmas morning wearing this, with that wonderfully unique laugh of hers,.


 How can I not find joy in my college son bringing home our new bunny, 

Penelope for a month!  

He bought her this dog outfit at Five Below store and went through a lot 

trying to capture a picture of her sitting still.  


A dear friend tagged me with this video on Facebook and I thought I’d end this 

with the video that brought me peace in this time of pain for any dear readers 

who are missing a loved one this season.  

Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah, my dear readers,

thanks for stopping by my blog and being the reason I write this blog and being

a part of my life!

I’m so glad you’re finding joy this Christmas, Tracey, despite your sorrow. May God be with you and your family and keep you in His care. What a beautiful song you shared! Thank you. When our loved ones are with the Son of God, as the song says, and Hod is with us, they can’t be far away!

I should have proofread before sending. That should say and GOD is with us…

No worries Suzanne I got your meaning before seeing the correction! Thank you for your kind words and thoughtfulness. .
