Pen Pals...


Hello!
I just realized that I really hadn't addressed the pen-paling for this month. If it's alright...I think I'm just going to leave it up to everyone personally as to what they want to do for this month. I personally am going to send everyone a card...but don't feel that you have to. If some of you want to take a break...I completely understand..and for those of you that want to send cards out, just send as you want to :) I will try to get back into the swing of things for January, maybe we could send out Happy New Year, or even a winter or snowman theme :)
I am still sore, but I think it is just going to take a little time.. So continue to keep me in your prayers...
Thank you so much to my dear friends that have sent me get well cards....you are so sweet! I have them hanging on my fridge:)The picture above is of a tree that we cut down and brought home a couple of yrs. ago. I haven't uploaded the pictures of our tree yet...so I thought I'd post an old picture just for fun. I thought this picture was really neat...I think Elizabeth took it. It's so strange, but pretty how the lights turned out in the bluriness of the picture. I thought it might be a nice one to share. I will try to post a picture of our tree from this year next time I'm on. We used to go and pick one out and cut it down, and then bring it home. The place we go to grows white pine I think. They are lovely and soft to the touch.. I know the kids have been missing it...but I just wasn't up to it this yr. Maybe next yr. :)

"The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand, nor the kindly smile, nor the joy of companionship; it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when he discovers that someone else believes in him and is willing to trust him with friendship." -Ralph Waldo Emerson -

With love to each and every one of you....Jerelene

Jerelene...
You take care of YOU, my friend.
Don't worry about the pen pal arrangments this month...
I'm like you; I'm going to try and send Christmas cards...and we all have a lot going on this month.
I love the glow of the lights on the tree...and having a real tree is a treat. I haven't had a real tree since I was a little girl...and I miss the smell of it in the house.
Please know that I'm praying for you. I just sent you an e-mail...
Warmest hugs to you, Jerelene.
Love,
Jackie

That picture is beautiful! It would make a nice background dress for a Christmas themed blog! You should use it next year or I will steal it from you!

I hope things are going okay for you and I hope you are not in too much pain.
I'm heading upstairs right now to pray for you and others in need.

I'm just waiting for Josh Groban to finish singing here, it's so beautiful.
Don't worry about the pen pals this month, we can all take care of that ourselves as you said. And next month would be nice to wish everyone a Happy New Year and/or a Happy Winter!
It was so good of you to start the pen-pals!

Beautiful Emerson quote! I love him and Thoreau!
Take good care, Sweetie.
Love and Prayers,
Eileen

Jerelene....I'm not trying to 'bug' you...but I'm worried that you aren't feeling well. I am praying extra hard for you tonight. I hug you, Jerelene.
I do hope that you are recovering....
