Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving and is getting in the holiday spirit for Christmas. Here is a poem I hope will get you in the spirit.
The True Spirit Of Christmas:
“To believe in making wishes
And have faith they can come true
To believe that you can find some joy in everything you do
To believe in giving gladly for no reason, Just because
To believe in love
That’s what it means
To believe in Santa Claus.” -Author unknown
The Beshires and I traveled to my parent’s home in Knoxville to celebrate. We had a nice meal with extended family including my 91 year old grandmother Bunny Nash. After the meal, Kevin and my cousins entertained the kids and the rest of the family with wagon races. Even some of the adults decided to try a wagon ride and ended up toppling out much to the amusement of the kids who the wagons were sized for. Alfred and Jonna Ewing enjoyed thanksgiving with their daughter and her family. They traveled from Toledo for the visit.
If you have not had a chance to drive by our city park at dark, make it a point to visit. The mayor, alderman and town volunteers did an excellent job lighting up the park for Christmas. There are several new lights and decorations this year that really make it pop including icicle style snowflakes and even a waving Christmas character. I just love the way the snowflake street lights look in downtown Silerton and you can drive up roads like Firetower to go see old familiar favorite street lights.
In health news Mary Lynn Lambert shared that Gwen Lindley is praising God that she is recovering from her recent hip replacement. Mark, her son who is a retired chef, spent a month with her during recovery. She really enjoyed his cooking delicious dishes. Robbie, her daughter, also came for a visit. Both children live in Ohio.
