Two of my very close friends (Teri & Helen) all celebrate December Birthdays - - same Age. I'm delighted to say that I'm actually the youngest of us 3 !! (Just a note - - 2 other special people celebrating December Birthdays are - - my Cousin, Jan & our Uncle Jack !) - - - Now, Helen - - who actually lives near me - -celebrates her birthday today. Helen's House recently burned down and she lost everything she owned - - yes, EVERYTHING ! Then, shortly thereafter - - her husband became ill and suddenly passed away. Thankfully, she did not flood during the recent Historical Flood of 2016. Helen & I bonded together on a Mission Trip to a small town in Southern Louisiana. We plan to Retire together - - next December - - after our 65th Birthday - - and participate in more Mission Trips.
Yes - during Football Season - - she makes it known she's from Alabama - -but, we still love her anyway !
I must say - - it's fun growing older with good ole' friends.
Macedonia Baptist Church invited me to attend their annual ChristmasCelebration with lots of Christmas Music & Delicious Food & the Christmas Story ! Ole time friends Roger & Janice (Mack) Dunlap leads this Celebration - - and - - extended a special invitation to me and other Election Commissioners during our last Election Day. It's Tonight - - on a Thursday Night (Dec. 1) - - but I think I'll go. It is in the Country - and will provide me with the opportunity to test my Car Electronic Navigation System (:>) ! I look forward to beginning the Christmas Season celebrating with my Voting Commissioner Friends.
It truly is beginning to look a lot likeChristmas.

There's so much JOY in being a Great-Aunt ! So enjoyed watching this little one perform in her Dance Showcase this past Sunday Afternoon. Really enjoyed the fact that she won first prize with the Raffle Ticket I purchased for her. God is amazing in how he makes everything so enjoyable.
