Tuesday Ramble

For me, the spirit of Christmas is about
letting the loving but messy little rituals become just as important as the solemn
and graceful ones. It's about making
room for everyone.

Good morning. It's a cool damp day outdoors today.  Part of me would love to stay in, but the other part doesn't want to miss art class. Finished up all of my shopping yesterday, and all gifts are wrapped and under the tree. I have all the ingredients needed for my Mexican feast and all recipes are in order.  I did well with my lists this year, and there will be no need to run out for last minute items.

This Christmas is so special to me, and I'm so looking forward to us being all together on Christmas Eve.  I've accepted that Miss Minga will most likely not be with us next Christmas, and I am determined to make it extra special for her.  And hubby.  We are still awaiting word from the insurance company as to whether or not they will pay for the medication that could save his life.  I am praying they approve.  The cost is about $95,000 for the 12 week course of treatment. That's a lot of money, and I fear that they may not want to pay it. Please pray with me   that he is accepted and can begin treatment as soon as possible. 

They say we have a huge rainstorm rolling in tomorrow.  Just when I plan to go to Christmas Eve mass with my sons.  It's my first time.  Wish it was at midnight, but they have no mass that late so we will be going at 5:30 for Christmas carols and 6 pm for mass.  If it rains too hard, we'll just have to grab a cab. 

Well, that's about it this morning.  Hope you all have a good one.  


  1. I hope the insurance company comes through for your hubby!

  2. Good morning Mary....I'm saying a prayer for your wonderful soul mate.
    Have a wonderful Christmas week.



  3. oh my, I certainly will pray they come through for you, my gosh, try to njoy your holiday season, I will be thinking of you!

  4. Thoughts and prayers are with and for you and your soul mate Mary.
