I wish my family and friends a Blessed New Year and I pray that you will have good health and happiness throughout 2015.

No excuses.  You must celebrate the birth of my  cousin.  And on what better night than New Year's Eve?  The entire world will be celebrating!!  I wish you happiness and good health, Will, today and throughout the New Year.

Cemetery Visit

Casey and I went to the cemetery to visit Mom last week.
 We stopped at this beautiful statue of Christ to say a prayer.
This deer we came upon, while leaving the cemetery, wanted no part of our visit and ran off as quick as he could.

Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church

 My Parish Church this Christmas.
 Beautiful live tree.
 The Nativity.

 Many beautiful poinsettia plants.
 VERY Large Crucifix hanging at front center.

 Angels above choir loft.

 Mother Teresa.
This window is front center up at the ceiling.

These are just a few of the many beautiful stained glass windows in the church.  They add such a warm feeling and the pictures cause the viewer to reflect on the topic they depict.  The church always has a special glow during the Christmas season.

Our 2014 Christmas Tree

Day After Christmas

Having Casey and Amanda here made Christmas week so much more special for me.  After a wonderful Christmas Day, we spent Friday together visiting some of their favorite places in Roanoke. Being the Mexican food lovers that we are, we made our usual stop at Alejandro's Mexican Grill for lunch.  They will be leaving early in the morning to head back to South Carolina and I will be a sad Mom to see them go.
