Merry Christmas

This has been one of the best Christmases the Hula's have had in a very long time and not just because Hubby gave me diamonds. That's right. He surprised me with a beautiful princess cut solitaire and matching band that knocked my socks off. It was something I've always said I wanted on our twentieth wedding anniversary, and he gave it to me two and half years early because the price of diamonds is expected to increase dramatically in the next couple of years. I love it when he's practical. And impractical all at the same time.

While that was the best gift under the tree, the best gift of the season was having Sissy with us once again for Christmas. She hasn't felt like celebrating Christmas in the seven years since Chance died, but this year she moved home, put up a Christmas tree and celebrated alongside us. We've missed her on those seven Christmas mornings, and it feels so good to have her back. It's better than all the diamonds in the world to know she's passed a milestone in her grief. I hope your Christmas has been as wonderful as ours and that no matter what your burdens are, you have hope for brighter days and that you were not alone on this day. Merry Christmas everyone.

I'm so glad you had a great Christmas. I'm especially glad that Sissy is healing. It takes so long.
