Merry Christmas To All.....

 This is a little child like nativity scene.  I love this. I have had it a long time.  My daughter Liz gave it to me. 

  This is a sign I bought a few years back at the Horton's store in town.  I love this saying.   

  Ted is still on his oxygen. He seems a tiny bit better today.  I pray he will be off this oxygen soon. Say in a couple weeks.  His vitals have been in the right range. He still have a good appetite . Two of my daughters have dropped off groceries and gifts. It's still Christmas. 

  Wishing all of you well and much happiness. Begging you to be safe.  XO

  4. I really like that quote of Dickens too.
    Having a good appetite is a good sign.

    1. I have kept Ted feed proteins . He is a good eater, only about a half dozen things he doesn't like. LOL I have always loved Dickens' stories, especially Christmas Carol. Stay safe when walking this winter. Merry Christmas to you and yours, xoxo,blessings too, Susie

  5. Your nativity is precious and the fact that it was a gift from your daughter makes a family treasure, for sure.
    Sounds like Ted is stable, here's praying that he can do without the oxygen soon.
    Wishing you both a lovely little Christmas.

  6. Merry Christmas, Susie. I love the little Nativity scene. And I would buy that sign in a flash, and like you, will try to live out Christmas all year. Glad Ted is hanging in there, with God's grace I pray he will continue to improve, and 2021 will bring new hope for all of us.

    1. Thank you my friend. I wish you and yours a Merry Christmas and peace and health in the new year. We all could use some peaceful joy. I never thought that Ted and I would be struggling with his health after the chemo treatments had stopped in April. It's wearisome. Blessings to each and every one of you, xox,love to all, Susie

  11. I love your Nativity set, it's lovely.
    And I also love the quote from Charles Dickens, I had that once on a Christmas care, I love it so.
    Prayers for your Teddy, will you tell him that I am thinking of him? Thank you!
    If you look at my blog, you will see a photo of children in a Nativity play. That's my Richard being Joseph, he was very tall even as a child.
    Merry Christmas. Hugs!!

    1. Thank you Theresa. You are so sweet. Ted is doing better. I think the nebulizer and oxygen are helping to clear his lungs. Once the lungs are clear his strength will improve...even a bit will be a blessing here. Wishing you and yours a Merry Christmas and a new year of good health and peace. Bless you, xoxo, Susie

  32. I started on COPD Herbal treatment from Ultimate Life Clinic, the treatment worked incredibly for my lungs condition. I used the herbal treatment for almost 4 months, it reversed my COPD. My severe shortness of breath, dry cough, chest tightness gradually disappeared. Reach Ultimate Life Clinic via their website www.ultimatelifeclinic.com. I can breath much better and It feels comfortable!
