Merry Christmas

as a christian i say Merry Christmas...let those who will be offended be so...their choice...i accept most beliefs  and try to "judge" people by their actions...i mean i do have to be flexible...with an atheist hubby and a wiccan daughter...LDS missionary parents...a s-i-l that sings for the "MoTabs"...friends that are almost every religion or non-religion under the sun...or moon as the case may be...we've been telling the grands that Santa brings presents to the "good" kids because he wants us to remember that Jesus was a gift from God to the world...and that their being "good" is what Jesus obey man and God's laws...

so i am wishing everyone a Merry Christmas...may you have a wonderful and joyous holiday...that you will have what you need (as well as what you want)...i know i will...all i need is my family &, happy, and healthy...

so good vibes and big cyber-hugs to safe & be well...Kari
