You Are A Gift To Me!

Well by this time all the running around looking for that perfect gift is probably over for most of us.
In the end after weeks of worrying we finally realize the prefect gift was not something we could purchase but was with us all along. The gift of Love from our Heavenly Father, Family and Friends! What better gift than these and you know we all have the Love of our Heavenly Father with us each and every day. If you blog then you know the love from friends all over the world. I am one lucky ole grandma tonight having all of these things this Christmas Eve!

Christi came in this afternoon and she and I baked a Pumpkin Pie and had a nice dinner. I fixed a roast in the slow cooker and we sat around the tree visiting. Not to long in the night Christi reminded me of this Cat. She put her comfy snuggly pj's on and headed for bed. 
Now I am going to try and catch up with as many of you as I can before I call it a night.

The rain on the Tin Roof may cause me to drift off while trying to visit you. Each of you are special to this ole grandma so if I don't get by tonight I will soon.

Looking forward to tomorrow because my two sons will be here along with my precious grandbabies and my lovely daughter-in-law. Blessings galore surround me this Christmas Eve!

Merry Christmas and Sweet Dreams
Maggie

Merry Christmas, Sweet Maggie! I'm so glad that Christi is there with you, and that your boys will be visiting, too.

During the holidays, we all pause to count the blessings in our life. I want you to know that you're one of mine.

Wishing you a wonderful celebration, and hoping you manage to get through the whole weekend without getting locked out in your jammies! lol (sorry. couldn't resist!)
Love ya,
Donna and Tag!

Many blessings, dear Maggie, for you and your dear loved ones. We don't realize how precious family is until it is no longer there.

The Santa on the scooter brought a smile to my face...as did the kitties! I know you've enjoyed had your kids and grandkids!

Merry Christmas Maggie! Hope the day was great. I'm so glad the shopping part is over for me and everyone liked their gifts! We had a wonderful day with kids and grandkiddos too. I'm off work tomorrow, but the rest of this week will be jammed with patients wanting surgery before the end of the year. No "long winter's nap" for me! Have fun with family!

Enjoy your family.

You are so right Maggie. It's not all the gifts or stuff that make Christmas but the celebrating the real reason we have Christmas. The gift of Love from our Heavenly Father.

I'm sending you both big hugs and kisses. JB

I know you & Christi had a wonderful time with one another ... snuggling shares of life.

Our precious gifts are the blessings of wonderful friends that god has led us to ... you are one. Thanking Him always for you.

Treasure my beautiful gift, sweetie. It will be out all year round ... love you.

Happy New Year
TTFN ~
Hugs & love,
Marydon

Dearest Maggie....... I hope you had an absolutely fabulous Christmas. Mine was quiet (which is good). And we hiked at our local Nature Preserve. I'm glad it's all over and looking forward to a quiet winter with lots of rug hooking, knitting, blogging, and visiting friends. Sorry I've been absent. Will take more time to pop by.

Merry Christmas and a Happy Healthy New Year. You deserve it

So glad you have family coming.

Friends and family are really all it is about as well as helping and giving to those less fortunate than we are.

Cats are a hoot....

I have felt that I was a better person for getting to know you better.
Your card was so thoughtful and sweet.

One of my Chritsmas Eve Day highlights was chatting with you!!!! That was so fun! We have to do it more often!

Darlene said...

I am sure you had a wonderful Christmas! Loved the picture of the kitty in the Santa outfit.

As this year is ending, I want you to know, Maggie, that I have really enjoyed getting to know you. I have loved reading your blog. I do hope that you are feeling better, I hate when you are having back problems.......probably because I can so relate. Hope too, that Christi is all better in every way. It is so nice that she could be with you.

Take care, dear friend, and have a Happy New Year!

Hi sweet Maggie. You are so right about having the love of a Heavenly Father all the year long. How thankful I am for His love and watch-care over my family and all of my friends this past year. Everyone here in this village of blogs have become so special.
It sounds like you were going to have a lovely Christmas with your family, and I hope it was the best ever.
Thank you for being such a dear friend to me. It has enriched my life so much to know you. Have a wonderful New Year, and don't let Pearl get too out of control ;)
sending many hugs your way...
