Ten years... how is it possible? 10 years ago tonight our whole family went to the nursing home to celebrate Christmas with my Dad and Mom, who were both very ill. That evening, while we were all gathered around, my father passed away.

Two weeks later, my mom joined him. Since then, the holidays have been very hard and I get a bit down, this time of year.

However, I just think how fortunate I am to have such a wonderful, healthy family to share every day with. Enjoy your time together, not just during the holidays, but every day.

Merry Christmas to you and your family!
