Yes, this will be the BEST Christmas EVER!
Why? Because my mom’s first round of chemotherapy went well today (we found out over the past two weeks that she has ovarian cancer) and she should be released from the hospital tomorrow, so that she can be home with us for Christmas Eve! Yay!
We always have a very quiet Christmas here since it’s just the six of us (my husband, my parents and our two puppies… and myself, of course). I’m keeping things very simple (since mom isn’t eating a whole lot, and neither is dad) with finger foods and a light dinner on Christmas Day. I’ll let my hubby polish off the many deserts and cookies I bought (yes, I bought them, I was not feeling well enough to bake anything from scratch this year), and I know this will make him happy.
We’re just really happy of the thought of having mom back at home with us at home. The puppies anxiously await their Nana’s return :)
From our family to yours…
We want to wish you a very MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!
Also, don’t forget to support KIVA (if you can) this holiday season. I’m getting money back from previous people that I’ve made loans to earlier this year, so I am re-loaning out that money to help other women start up or grow their business. I was able to help a woman in Nicaragua on Kiva earlier today and it made my heart very happy :-)
