It was a Merry Christmas, but it came and went so soon!
Little Penpen and the grandchildren
I've heard others say this and it's true for me, too: I enjoy the week after Christmas the most. There is nowhere to go, the presents are all opened, and the stress is gone. I can enjoy my Christmas tree lights, reflect on the season, reflect on the birth of Jesus, find the calm that I wish was there during the hectic part of the season.
Our little brides
I'm looking forward to a new year. The longer I am 'retired' from nursing , the more I find that I enjoy being retired. I'm hoping for a very productive year!
