I get toys (actually I gave them to my great neice and nephew). I think I’ve been good . . . I even invited my not so nice neighbour (she can be very nice when she wants something) for Christmas dinner because I know she lost custody of her daughter because of her imbibing and I thought she might appreciate some company. She turned me down which OK. I will spend some time with my mother. I saw mother on the 23rd and for the first time, I had rivers of tears because of how downhill she has gone. My mom’s 2 grandmothers died Christmas Eve 7 years apart and her stepfather died New Year’s Eve. I think the memories of those events and seeing my mother’s condition overwhelmed me when I wasn’t looking.

I’m so sorry Lynn if I could reach you I’d give a big hug. My Mom was in that difficult place last year at this time. This year she isn’t here to hear her voice but at least I know she is free from the conditions that held her mind and body at the end. Sending love and light to you…hugs too.

Thanks Sheryl. I call them "virtual hugs" and I very much appreciate them. The contraction of muscles on her right side is very painful, and now her left is starting to contract. But she fights to maintain her last bits of independence and dignity by holding a small sandwich in her left hand and eating it. But this will be gone all too soon as well.
I think when it is my mother’s turn to take the next steps in her soul’s journey, she will say, if I might paraphrase MLK Jr, "Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty, I am free at last!"

I had to say "Naughty" because of all the bad stuff I post on FB and all the arguments I get into with my RepublicanT friends.

I get toys – well, to be factual, my rescue cat and rescue dog get toys – but I get to watch them play so happily with them!

I lied, I just WISH I had been so naughty I would get expensive toys.

This year is slim pickin’s so only our autistic son gets presents. No big deal.

I get toys. Neither I nor anyone I know can afford to give coal. (At least not real coal. Dollar Tree has some chocolate coal which isn’t bad.

I am nice, but have been so naughty to and about the right wingnuts, I think I’m in the last category and should by myself something nice that I can use to be even naughtier next year to them. :^

Actually, I’ve been rather nice all things considered – however, I keep having naughty thoughts mostly about Faux Noise and the GOP and wishing for a quiet way to get rid of both…..
