Holiday Time

Take time to think about friends and family this holiday season. Those who are here and those who are not. This is the first Christmas without Gram Margaret, my Hubby's maternal grandmother. I am missing her this season for several reasons, one being that I miss the stories of my Hubby's childhood that she shared whenever we visited her.  Gram Margaret was one of those ladies who always wore a dress and had her hair done at a beauty shop. And feisty, oh yes, feisty and despite being adopted into the family when I married her oldest grandchild (my Hubby) and becoming her only granddaughter, she loved me as one of her own.
I know this Christmas that either she is finally able to bake her special sugar cookies again or that she's found an even better way to celebrate the Season, with it's Author.
