My Christmas Wish For You

I want to send out Merry Christmas greetings to all the readers of my Creative Gene and Creative Genealogy blogs along with all my Genea-Blogger buddies. It will be quiet on my blogs through the Christmas holiday except for the COG which will be published as scheduled on December 18th.

My dear father-in-law died last night (Alzheimer's), and barring a miracle, I will lose my sister-in-law (my husband's brother's wife) to cancer before this week is out. So I expect to have back to back funerals to attend in addition to a scaled back Christmas holiday to put together. I won't have time for blogging. I know you'll understand. Please keep my family in your prayers this holiday season.

I hope you all have a blessed and peaceful Christmas with good food, great family get-togethers, and cheerful memories of the loved ones who can't be with you this holiday season. I'll be thinking of you...

PS Mary Poppins stole the Christmas Meme from me and I guess I was accused of stealing it too. I think this supposed to be a joke. It's kind of warped if you ask me.

  4. Jasia - thoughts & prayers to you & your family. And when this happens during the holiday season, sometimes it is even harder - perhaps someone will start a new tradition of honoring those you've lost through hanging a special ornament or something? Take care.

  8. I'm so sorry to hear of your loss, Jasia, and the ongoing sadness. It must be very difficult, but hang on to the treasured times and memories. Family around you will be a great blessing. Your Christmas Wish was very moving. Your friends understand that you will return to blogging when the time is right. Today I tried several times to submit to the 62nd Carnival without success, but I will enjoy all the others.

    I know how difficult it is to lose loved ones at anytime, but it's even
    harder at holiday times. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your
    family.
