A Cross In The Christmas Tree

I just wanted to take a moment to wish you all a very Merry Christmas! There is so much busyness going on at this time of year. I want to stop and enjoy the moments and cherish these times; I wish it wasn't such a struggle.

I, like the rest of you are asking where did this year go? How are we really only 2 days from Christmas? Yet, here we are... wrapping presents, baking cookies, getting ready for family gatherings.
