Christmas Mess



I'm one of those people who likes things to be organized in the unwrapping of gifts to ensure that nothing important is tossed in the garbage. However, there's nothing quite like the chaos of ribbon, tags, paper, tissue, bags and boxes flying around on Christmas morning. I'll miss not being a part of that this year.



I'm not certain whether or not I'll have time to post something tomorrow before we leave for England for my father-in-law's funeral. If I don't, it is my hope that the holidays will be full of new memories and cherished traditions for you and your families.

Thank you, again, to all of you who've written such kind, thoughtful comments about our unexpected loss.

Be good to YOU,

Melanie
