Dear Chuck ...

As a;ways I enjoy reading your posts and as always very well written.  I'm still going to come after you to do some writing as an author!  You have a true gift my friend.  

I pray every night that Steve and you have good health and the surgeries and medical issues are over for Steve.  What the nurse wrote was priceless!  Thank you for sharing.

Love & Hugs

Marsha

Hello everyone,

A friend who is a nurse in a Dallas hospital send this message to me, and I am sharing it here as my New Year's greeting for those who haven't seen it somewhere already.

Steve's surgery on New Year's Eve went smoothly, and as we left that night I said to all the nurses in the surgical department (to whom we have become familiar faces) that I wished that they be safe and well in the New year, and that, no offense, I hoped not to see them again!

May 2021 see the tide turn on COVID-19, and that other natural disasters take a break! Stay safe and healthy Legacy family.

Happy New Year!  I've decided 2021 has to be my year of hope.  So many things on my list to hope for but first and foremost is health and that's what I wish for my Legacy family.....a healthy and peaceful 2021

My New Years Eve was quiet as well.  I watched the NYC ball drop on CNN with Andy Cohen and Anderson Cooper.

Sending my love to you all

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL.  PRAYING 2021 WILL BRING EACH AND EVERYONE OF US FREEDOM, PEACE, GOOD HEALTH AND JOY.  

I KNOW THIS IS A DIFFICULT HOLIDAY FOR MANY OF YOU AND WE DO THE BEST WE CAN.  I SPENT NEW YEAR'S EVE WITH MY 2 BELOVED DOGS WITH THE FIREPLACE AGLOW AND THE TREE LIGHTS ON AND JUST ENJOYED THE PEACE.  I WAS AMAZED THAT THERE WERE VERY FEW FIREWORKS GOING OFF.  I WAS FORTUNATE TO HAVE SOME OF MY FRIENDS PHONE ME AND WISH ME HAPPY NEW YEAR, BUT IT WAS ON THE EARLY SIDE BECAUSE NO ONE COULD STAY AWAKE!  LOL

THIS IS GOING TO BE A BETTER YEAR!!!

LOVE & HUGS

Dear Deb P ...  I am so sorry that you are feeling down and out, but you are not alone.  We all know with this Covid it has changed so much in our lives.  Everyone is anxious and if living alone (I do with my dogs) it's even lonlier so I understand how you feel.  My tree is up and I turn it on and in the evening put my fireplace on and cozy up.  Try to watch something decent on TV and do the best I can.

British Columbia isn't as restrictive as the U.S.  I am able to go to my families for Christmas dinner (very small group and in what they call, 'my bubble.')  I was so looking forward to seeing everyone and they are planning to have a family picture taken.  Wouldn't you just know it though; I got the 'Green apple two step' and been rushing back and forth to the washroom and feeling terrible.  No, it's not Covid.  I've rested well and taken Imodium and OK during the day, but woke up this morning and had it all over again so it looks like I'll be staying home.  I just sat down and bawled.  I won't be with my family and have the joy of watching my great niece and nephew open their gifts.  I'm still bawling my head off more out of frustration than anything.  Also, (this is funny in a way) I went to get my black slacks ready to wear a couple of days ago and they don't fit!  Since Covid I didn't realize I had put on some weight.  I don't feel I can make it out to get new slacks so here I sit.  

So my dear friend, when you feel blue on Christmas remember that this lady is also going through the same thing.  So cozy up and if you can put the fireplace on and realize others are not able to be with their families.  Easy to say and hard to do I know.  

Love & Hugs

Marsha

To all of my friends, thank you for your words of wisdom it makes me feel not alone. I pray that all these surgeries stop for Steve, that you finally get a break.. I surely hope we get a break from this Covid thing, its getting too cold here for walks except on the occasional warmer day so I am at home, I usually order groceries so don't go out for that but I too have my craft room which I love to spend time in. But my Christmas wish is Peace for everyone. love you all Deb

HI Deb....I'm sorry today has been a hard day for you. 

For me it's the whole fall season that's tough beginning with Ken's birthday in Oct, then my bday in Nov, Thanksgiving , Christmas, New Year's and the anniversary of his passing in Jan.  This Christmas is harder because we can't have family gatherings so I'll be staying home (although I may sneak over to my brother's for a little bit).  I'm going to do the best I can to think about Christmas as just a Friday instead.  We'll see how that goes.

Praying that all my friends here have a peaceful holiday

Love, Sara
