Mi Familia is such a blessing
We’re so glad we are here
The trip was long and arduous
But we traveled without fear
We knew God was with us
Your prayers were felt for sure
Thank you, God, for safety
With You our trip was secure
God bless “Mi Familia!” It is so good to be with them! Monika, our daughter-in-law, is taking the picture. That’s Ruthie & Darrell, her parents, on the left. Our son, Ty, is at the head of the table there… and of course, Bob & me. We’ll be joined on Christmas day by our grandson, Jordan, and his family – – – and our granddaughter, Faith, and her husband. They are expecting their first child (a baby girl) in April. We are so excited for them!
Monika and Ruthie fixed a wonderful dinner last night:
salmon and veggies and potatoes.
We spent time talking
about our heritage
and remarking about
how much Ty looks like my dad,
his Grandpa Sal.
Can you see the resemblance?
Then we had fun
giving Bob a bad time
about his “honker!”
See how he inherited his nose
from his paternal great-grandfather Davis?
That’s his dad’s mother’s father.
Prior to dinner
we took time to toast “Cheers!”
to all the family and friends
who prayed us safely here –
and gave thanks to God
for answered prayers.
Outside the weather was chilly,
rainy, and then foggy …
but the spirit of Christmas
was alive and well,
warm and inviting.
Across the continent – and over the Atlantic to Switzerland,
our crazy, fun-loving grandson, Nick
(and his sweetheart Celine)
celebrated the birthday of the King
in their own way with a milkshake
from the Burger King!
Don’t you love the way the internet
shrinks the world and brings
“Familia” into our lives
from around the world?
Merry Christmas to you,
my dear blogging friends.
I pray that you have a meaningful,
with your family gathered round.
Remember the Reason for the Season…
and bring that Christ Child into your family circle.
God bless you.
Let me know what your Christmas plans are, okay?
I look forward to hearing from you…
and I thank you so much
for following my blog.
I post with you in my heart and prayers.
I send my love and hugs.
Have a wonderful time with your family!
See ya tomorrow (God willing)
