Merry Christmas Family – I Love You All!

Do you know that each of us have an impact on a minimum of 3 generations?   Knowing this, and realizing the positive impact so many of you have had in my life,  it confirms that I come from “good stock”  and have an extremely high standard to live up to!

I have every birthday card you ever sent to me, tied up in ribbons.  The graduation cards, letters of encouragement… all of them.  You may have thought they were insignificant when you sent them, but think not.   I often think of how blessed I’ve been to have your constant love and support all these years, loving me in spite of my flaws!

I would like to say that I am very thankful for each and every one of you.  I have been so blessed in my life to have you.  I am thankful for my grandparents and great grandparents (generations back…) on both sides, who gave me two wonderful, Godly parents to love and care for me.  I am thankful for my brothers and my sister who I love dearly.  And what has been so unique about this family is that our extended family has been the same source of strength, encouragement and love.  My cousins are like my brothers and sisters.  And I had relationships with not only aunts and uncles, but also great aunts and uncles!  That’s a rare and special thing.

No one on earth has had better parents;  nor better siblings;  nor better in-laws;  nor better aunts and uncles than we’ve had;  nor better great aunts and uncles;  nor better cousins;  nor better nieces and nephews…  I am proud to be part of such a wonderful family.

The past years have been filled with much laughter and love… so abundant that it can’t be measured!  It fills me up.  The memories are sweet and will forever be in my heart.  God has blessed us more than any of us realize by giving us each other.  We need to embrace that and keep sending back out what we have so generously received.

I pray for God’s blessings in each of your lives.  May the new year bring you all good health, peace, much joy and an abundance of God’s goodness and grace.  This weblog of memories is my gift to you all.  I hope you enjoy it.  Let’s keep it going, growing and keep the love flowing!

Life isn’t measured by the number of breaths you take,

but by the moments that take your breath away!

We may not have it all together… But together we have it all!

Merry Christmas!

    Cheryl, very nice job. Lovely photographs. It’s a joy getting to see everyone in younger days. I’ve been telling Sheila she is really going to enjoy seeing what you’ve done.

    Just reading a bit as I haven’t been on the site in a while… what a great job you’ve done! I can tell how much work you’ve put into this. It’s made me remember what I love about our family and to realize the impact that the family has made on me. Like you, I am very blessed and grateful…
