This time of year, every blogger and their chipmunk try to out do one another trying to impress with how religious they are. This has been a very long year – probably the worst in my life. I’ve spent so much time in prayer, and working on a devotional, that I don’t feel the need to impress anyone with my religiosity.
Lighten up. Stop fighting the war for Christmas. We’ve won. That’s why they are fighting us. Just sit back and live and let live. Give the dog a chewie bone and let the cats open another stocking. Give them some recreational drugs

This year my family is dealing with the knowledge that my father has Alzheimer’s. We are fortunate because we know what is coming. My sister and I are the lucky ones. We are well aware this could be the last Christmas he is really with us. The medication he is taking is doing great. He seems to be better now that he was a year ago, but the disease is still there. We know our time with him is limited, so we are making the most of it. Everyone should be so fortunate!
