Beat me to it!
Happy Birthday, Scholar!
I trust that you are enjoying your day.
Thanks, to those who expressed birthday wishes.
Frankly, it could have been better. We are experiencing harsh winter weather. One of my family members is in the hospital. The snow storm was so bad, on the 24th, that I was unable to reach my two churches for Sunday morning, and had to turn back.
But, Ruby and I did get back safely.
My most heart-warming gift was from one of the people staying in our home. He is a young adult, who grew up with no father and a neglectful mother. I may have mentioned, he showed up at our door one night around midnight, with no place to stay, and Ruby invited him in to stay with us! We are his later than-usual foster family.
He gave me a pocket watch that says "Dad" on it!
We'll done Scholar and Ruby! That sounds like the true spirit of Christmas! Sorry about the relative in hospital.
