Christmas is coming

It's just about time for Christmas. And beyond the gifts that are a tradition, Christmas time means so much more to me. It's a time when I get to be with family that I rarely see. Cousins and second cousins show up for a gathering. Not as many as there were when I was younger, but some of them still come. Christmas is also a time for remembering. My favorite Aunt died on December 26th several years ago and I still remember her very well. I don't sit around and cry about it, but I use Christmas to reflect on the good times that I had with her.

The gifts are purchased, the plans are made. Everything seems to be ready....

Why is Jaden sick?
