Merry Christmas To You!

Just had to stop a few minutes and wish YOU and your family a Very Merry Christmas!

The other night I was talking to sweet Susan from Georgia who writes the site Art of Mine and I was telling her that I only put up two small trees this year and one was my girly tree. She ask if I would put it on my site so here it is.
Just look at this flowering ornament. It is shades of pink with little pearls and sequins.


Here is one of my butterfly ornaments that I just love.



Since it is the girly tree I put it in the sitting room of the master bedroom.


Maybe in a day or two I can show you my other small tree. I did manage to decorate two of three mantles and will try to take pictures of them.

Thank you so much for all the beautiful Christmas wishes you have sent my way and of course for your prayers too. My brother Gary and I appreciate you so much. Treatments for Gary are everyday now so it is sad now watching how he seems to be going down more every day. Hopefully when this is over he will be back to his ole self and can enjoy life again.

This is the first time in my life that I can ever remember having more than a day or two off to prepare for Christmas. We celebrated Thanksgiving at the ole farm house so off to Austin to spend Christmas Eve and Christmas Day with my children and of course grand babies. It is so much fun being Grandma Yellow Hair! I can not wait to see everyone and enjoy their excitement of the day.

Christi's Birthday was yesterday and she was sick. We both suffer from Fibromyalgia and her doctors seem to think that her muscles are so inflamed they are causing her a lot of trouble with a sore throat and ear troubles. Hard to believe that this disease causes so many pains.

Love the Christmas cards I have been getting from you! Their lovely and I have enjoyed each and every one.

There was so much I wanted to do for you this year and time just got away with me. Hopefully not next year.

Trying my best to get by your sites and catching up with you but if I don't make it before Christmas Day just know that I am thinking of you and wishing for you the very best Christmas ever.

May God Bless Each of You and Keep you Safe!


Merry Christmas to You,
Love
Maggie

Your girly tree is just fabulous! And the butterfly ornament is my favorite.
I wish we lived closer because we could do some serious damage with a jug of rum and eggnog!!
Merry, Merry Christmas Friend.

Dear Maggie,
I pray that you and your family will have a bright, blessed Christmas this year. I am so sorry your brother is having a hard time, but hopefully it is the beginning of his healing.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
I do love your pink and white tree. It is adorable - lovin' the butterfly.
My fibro flared terribly a couple of weeks ago and I truly didn't try to do one thing for a few day. Rotten thing to have but at least it can't kill us.
Merry Christmas, friend.
Rhonda

Christmas doesn't have to be red and green to be beautiful! Your tree proves that! Have a great time with your family, stay safe, healthy and happy!

Sue said...

PS. Hope this new year brings you less pain and more healing for yourself and for your brother!

My dear Maggie, thank you so much for all your support through the year I was truly blessed the day I stumbled upon your blog. I would just fit right it in your home, wishing you and all your family, and all your friends and all your fellow bloggers a very Merry Christmas and a healthy, happy, joyful, laughing, 2011

Dearest Maggie....I am SO glad you stopped by and left a note. I am sorry you are having such a rough time of it. And Gary as well.

I too have FIBRO...have had for 30 years or about a CENTURY it seems. Yes, it does have a lot of "off shoots"....unfortunately.
CRAPPY condition to put it mildly !!
But I am so happy you will be spending time with your grandkids..nothing like grandkids to make us smile.
I will be praying for you this very minute...and hope you are able to enjoy your Christmas and at least have this time "away from it all"...enjoying your family.

With love and prayers,
Rose

Love and huge hugs from FL

Mumsy said...

Hi, sweet Maggie. I had to start a new blog...lost the other one. I am trying to find all my followers again. I hope you and your family are doing better. My mom is still hanging on but growing weaker each day. It is going to be hard to let go after having her in my life for 71 years.

Have a very Merry Christmas sweet Maggie.

Hugs,

Mumsy

My Mother would have coveted your girly tree as pink was her favorite color. We only put up two small decorations and a stocking for the dog.

Enjoy your visit with the family and grandkids. Glad you feel well enough to go.
