Christmas Wishes 2010

It comes so fast every year. It catches us off guard. We know it's coming. Every year we are still shocked at how fast time flies. The mad rush to finish shopping for the perfect gift, last decoration to hang, last card to write. This said, we are not children who wait anxiously for Santa to arrive. Their bubbling joy knows no bounds as their expectation and excitement is almost unbearable and uncontainable in their little bodies. Sleep is impossible they reassure us. Then they close their eyes in exhausted slumber only to wake at the crack of dawn with squeals of delight.
Take time to enjoy family and friends. Relax and put up your feet if only for a few moments. Reflect on the reason we do this each year. Then give up a little prayer for those who can't be home. Then give a great big hug to those who are with you.
Merry Christmas to all from every creature great and small from Mainely Ewes Farm.

Have a very blessed Christmas my friends! I am still enjoying the memories of the wonderful Christmas last year two special people gave me. This year I passed it on by giving blankets, firewood, food, boots to 7 homeless men living in tents under a bridge. Thank you!

Dave and I are in our rented digs in Richmond while he's getting radiation and chemo treatments. Family came to us and it was lovely; the first time we've all been together in 6 years. The snow waited until late afternoon so they were able to return home safely and we all spent the time like billionaires!
