Digital Nativity

I think I may have posted this last year, but it bears repeating.

May YOUR journey, following the star to the Bethlehem stable, be filled with wonder and joy.

Dirty Thirty

So the hubby turns 30 today. That's right, my Ari is now officially over the hill. Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy. :D

Love you, my dear. Happy birthday! XOXOXO

Two of the Best

This week has been quite the week in our little world. As we celebrated Little Tyke's third birthday on Tuesday, today we lost my grandfather, Cal Wilson, after a long  struggle. They have only visited a very few times but took well to each other each time. I will be spending my weekend, and a few days next week, celebrating both of these special people, and what they have meant to all of us. God bless you Grampa. And God bless you, little man. XO

Remembrance Day

In the busy week that has passed, in the busy week ahead, I don't want to forget tomorrow is Remembrance Day. Our chance to remember those who died in fights, some of which we agreed with, some we didn't, but always so that we would have the right to have those discussions. It is a time to be thankful to those who made it home, but nonetheless took the ultimate risk. It's a time to remember the adage about 'supporting our troops ... bring them home', and hope someday, in a perfect world - the world these men and women died for - there will be no more need to send our young adults off to war.

In the words of Rick Mercer:

Thank you Grandpa ... an 88-year-old World War II veteran. Thank you Uncle Tommy, whose peacekeeping took him all over the world. And to Kyle, my brother, a former reservist, who never did go overseas but would have in a heartbeat. God bless us everyone.
