Merry Christmas!!!

Merry Christmas to everyone!  It is mild here today but a big storm is on the way.  We are supposed to get 6 inches so all is right with the world.


Yesterday afternoon I made 25 sandwiches.

I made even more kringles.  Some small.....

and some large.

I got out a bunch of paper bags.

Put Christmas stickers on them.

Then I made a huge pot of creamy chicken and rice soup and packed up 25 thermal containers of it.

I wrapped spoons up in holiday napkins and packed it all up in the bags along with some good Christmas candy.

And I took it all into the city and passed the bags out to the homeless under the bridges.

It made my Christmas very merry.

You my friend are wonderful, and this was such an incredibly special thing to do with your time, and with your abilities. It must have made some people's Christmases, not just because they had a good meal, but because they felt loved. Merry Christmas to you!
