Here it is just five days before Christmas and I haven’t posted my Christmas/New Year’s greetings to all of you who have faithfully followed me since I began this blog. I can’t say that I’ve learned a lot about blogging yet, but I’m making progress.
When I wrote my book “We Are Different Now” about the death of my 21-year-old grandson, Pete, and what we’ve learned since he left us, I always sensed that Pete was right here by my side as I wrote every page. I always felt that I had Divine Intervention as I wrote my book. And he stayed there through those long 8-hour days at my computer for weeks on end as my publisher and I edited and re-edited my manuscript until it was ready to go to the printer and during the intense marketing phase of this project.
Every year, I’ve always purchased a dated ornament for our Christmas tree and while searching for it this year, I stumbled upon this wonderful Snow Baby ornament that is an angel holding a book that says “From God” and I knew it was the perfect one and that I had to have it, even though it bears no date. It hangs on our tree right above the most precious ornament on that tree, which is a large, paper heart with GRAN written on the back. Pete made it for me in 1994 and it’s a greater gift than any present beneath that tree.
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year, my friends. May you all know many blessings in 2014!
