Around this time of the year, we are all faced with many thoughts and feelings, but I especially like this time of the year because I'm like a kid. Whether I will receive presents or not it doesn't matter, but I love to give to make others happy. That is my Christmas!

Thanks so much for your wonderful e-mail about the children! I have sent you a e-mail in return! Please keep me posted!

Love you all,

Sandie May Angel :o)

Joyce I love that tradition something I may have to borrow from you, Lord knows there are many deserving families around here that could use that little basket of food
God Bless

Joyce, this is a wonderful tradition. Think I'll check out my neighborhood and see what I can share. Our local grocery store has such a program, already gave them my turkey, but now am inspired to take it one step further.

After my Dad died, our church brought us a Christmas basket of food, but included a lipstick for my Mom. She still remembers this token [the lipstick] of love.

God bless you. Kathy
