My Christmas Card to You.


Merry Christmas

As we approach Christmas Day I want to wish each and everyone of you a wonderful holiday filled with gathering, sharing and most of all loving.  

As we reflect and remember all the blessing in our lives please enjoy the best gift of all  the gift of family and friends.  

Thank you for your blogging friendships.  Each of you are near and dear to my heart and I appreciate your gifting me with your friendships. 

Merry Christmas





One of my favorite Christmas Songs is Mary Did You Know? 
I could have chose numerous celebrities that sing this song beautifully but the two I chose just touched my heart. 

There is nothing like the angelic voices of a child.  Enjoy the two 12 year old angels that perform this so beautifully.   I wanted to share this as part of my Christmas Card to each of you. 
 Hope this up lifts your heart as we move closer to this special day.

Enjoy.
Kris











Did I tell you they are 12 years old?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    1. Vera,
      You are too sweet. I am wishing you and John a most wonderful Christmas. I know it will be hard without Chris. Since Christmas is a time when we all think about family and our blessing this can be a hard time for those that have such great loss. So please know I am wishing you small amounts of joy as you move through your grieving. Christmas is also such a wonderful time for memories and my wish is all the wonderful memories of Chris will help lighten your heavy heart.
      Merry Christmas Sweet Friend. I am so thankful for your gifting me your friendship and getting to know you better. Until we meet in person I will cherish our blog friendship. Looking forward to a new year of many new delights and joys.
      Love you,
      Kris
