Life is busy with holiday happenings. I am enjoying working with Kiwanis on Christmas projects, including gifts for long term residents at an area hospital. And FeVa Fotos is making a showing this Saturday at a holiday bazaar sponsored by two of the artist groups we belong to. And that involves putting together a lot of new FeVa Christmas "keepsake" cards for that sale. Always fun! As a Kiwanis project , I worked on holiday lighting of a gazebo in our local downtown park. More complicated than it sounds! But I have never worked with a nicer bunch of city officials including the young men on the fireman crew who came to hang the lights. And Tom has been up the ladder several times to achieve a proper setting on the timer! Something else that proved more complicated than it looked. But as of last night We Got It! Most of my packages are mailed . .and only a couple of Christmas Parties to go. . This season always comes on so fast. . and it is evidently here!
The status on my healing body part remains about the same. Slowly. . slowly. . but no problems that I am aware of. . I should be going back to Mayo for a check up next month for sure. But for now and just thankful for another holiday season to enjoy with a Tom and exchange greetings and goodwill with family and friends. Even without a cancer recovery it isn't difficult to find gratitude for a good life when you look at the needs of those near and far. We aren't that far from an area of our world where we are told some mothers are eating every other day so their children can have something to eat every day. That one got me! "Be thankful you have enough." Not my quote but one that looms large in my head. There are many who don't have enough. So I guess that is my thought today. Gratitude for being one of those who has "enough". And humbly grateful for the being blessed with so much more. Sending love and hugs to family , Friends and friends. . .Sandy
