The year 2003 was a year of great loss, sorrow, and lessons to be learned for our family. We lost two of our immediate family members. It is because of the birth of our Savior, that we made it through. He is the only one who can issue peace, no matter the circumstance. He is the reason we go on with the peace and happiness of knowing, because of His perfect life and sacrifice, we will all be reunited as a complete family again one day, never to be separated.

May you bask in the comfort that only the perfect Peacegiver can give. I will be forever grateful for his sacrifice for me and my family. I wish each of you a sweet Christmas full of precious family memories made.
With Love----------Mary Lou, Mom, Nana. : )

I came by to wish a Merry Christmas and tell you how much I have enjoyed your blog since I found it. Then you brought tears to my eyes.
I loved your sweet & tender message of hope and peace this Christmas Eve. Thank You!
We too have felt the sweet peace after the sting when our own immediate loved ones have passed away. This peace you are right can only come through HIM the Prince of Peace of who we honor tonight as we celebrate HIS birth.

I too hope you have an awesome Christmas this year.
