Groovy Wins AGAIN!

Wow. I am SO humbled by the way God has been blessing me of late.

First of all, He has given me the most precious Christmas season of my life. If you'll recall, last year was not good for me. I was very depressed through the holidays. Between the extreme stress of moving my mom up here and the immense sorrow over some broken relationships in our family, I didn't want anything to do with the season.

I got a therapy light and that truly did help some. However, I don't think I realized how bad things were for me last year until this year hit.

I have so much peace and joy! The absolute relief over letting go of the Christmas Greed Monster, the amazing blessing of being able to know and love my grandchildren and daughter-in-law, the even keel that's been reached in our dealings with our aging parents - it's all worked together to make this a wonderful, WONDERFUL Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Praise be to God!

Then, last week, I won all this great STUFF. Totally cool!

And, it has not ended yet. Saturday, we forgot to check the mail, but this morning Grammy grabbed it from the box on her way back from an errand. Inside?

I won a new Barlow Girls' Christmas CD from my favorite radio station in the whole wide world!!!

Groovy, so glad that God has blessed you so fully this year!
