After what I shall always remember as a perfect Christmas day and a quiet and happy December 26th, my mother experienced a severe, massive stroke Sunday morning. We are in the ICU at Columbia. She's fairly aware but debilitated on her left side.
Time will tell how hard it will be for her to work back. She is a tough cookie, and we so hope for the best. I already have SO many things I want to tell her. Please keep a good thought for us.

How different it has been to have such warm days. I know all my friends and family have enjoyed the sunshine. We have been loving our visits with dear ones gathered at our table, and we hope to see more.
This has been a year with a lot of tears for some in our precious circle. Our heart goes out to everyone facing any kind of test or sorrow.
May you all find the Grace to experience happy Christmas memories.

Another amazing sunrise here at Meadow Lane. Final day of decorating. Almost done with wrapping.
I hear Mama getting up. It's that beautiful time of the day when everybody else has to go to school... And I'm retired... It was fun though.
I know the holidays can be sad, stressful, happy... Anything. I hope yours are sweet and kind.

So, in my quest to enjoy each season, it occurred to me to revisit favorite seasonal movies. December 1st found me watching a truly romantic comedy with the beautiful Kate Beckinsale
and one of my favorites John Cusack. Christmas plays a minimal part, but it is the setting. So it counts.
Do you believe in fate? I want to when things are good. I refuse if the plot turns sad or ugly.
We were all so much younger when this movie first aired in 2001. I followed a hunch and discovered this fact. Serendipity was released less than a month after 9/11. All shots of the WTC towers were edited out of it. Gone. What was the thinking on this? Would God forbid! we have done the same for The Statue of Liberty? the St. Louis arch? the Eiffel Tower?
Well, it is a free movie on Amazon Prime and perhaps Netflix. I like it. 10 stars. I am hopelessly romantic although life very certainly kicked me in the teeth there... But it did not for many, my parents and grandparents included.
Suggest a Christmas movie favorite if you will!
