Merry Christmas in 2011! This year has been full of Blessings that I am very grateful for~ the fact that we live free in the USA is high on the list! I am also very grateful for family, friends, health and wealth! The gifts given at this time of year are the symbols of appreciation for the present (time). Even though these seem to be hard times, the feelings of being blessed, loved and appreciated are accepted with the greatest gratitude, and are timeless!
