More Christmas Spirit

Category: Journal

It is beginning to feel like christmas more and more all the time around here. This weekend we had our friends over to decorate the tree. We always love to put up the tree with friends it is always a good time, although it makes us miss Irish. Irish we miss you and christmas is just not the same without you around. Ok so i should clear something up, when i say we decorated the tree i really mean Naomi and Ginny. What a fine job they did, while Craig and i sat back and watched well Craig was sick and me i had no excuse. Oh well. Anyways with the tree up and in the mood to decorate some more, i have put up a few lights on the site. I still think it could use more decorations. What do you think?

Now i would like to talk about something that all of you might not be aware of. The last few months have been a hard few. My Grandpa has cancer and it is at this point he is close to leaving this world. He was diagnosed with cancer close to his liver over a year ago. He has since then been fairly healthy and well till about October, when we was admitted to the hospital. The cancer has grown considerably and is causing him along with other complications to die. He was givin the choice to "pull the plug" last week and has decided it is time. So now is a waiting game. It has been hard to see such and strong and wonderful man slowly wither, and is not easy to talk about, especially for me. I love my grandpa greatly and hope that it won’t be too much more painfull for him. For any of you who know or have met my Grandpa you know how wonderful he is. Always the strong silent type, easy to get along with and always so supportave. The next couple of days will probably be the toughest.

We just ask from all of you for your love, support and prayers in this difficult time.
