So sorry about your Uncle Ralph, losing someone is so hard I lost my Mommy this year and just don't know if you ever get over something like this, there is a lot of hurt in my heart. I am 38 and about to have my 3rd child in June and I am so sad she wont be with me to share in this. I just feel like I got cut short with her, what is really sad all of my grandparents are gone as well. Despite this, I am gonna keep my head up this holiday season and try to have a good one with my family and children. Hope you do as well.


Wow! Super Wow! I'd love to win!!! And, your post is sweet. It always is! I bet your Daddy is a great man....because you are a great woman!!! Hugs and Merry Christmas sweet friend!

Your uncle Ralph was truly a blessed man. What a joy to know that he is walking in Heaven with no cane or support. My condolences to you and your family. Thanks for the awesome giveaway. This has been so much fun. Merry Christmas.


Even when we know the end is near, it's still very tough when it finally happens. This was my mother's favorite time of year...a stronger person I've never known. This is when I miss her the most; not on the anniversary of her death, now almost 10 years ago. Condolences on losing your Uncle Ralph.

Merry Christmas to you and yours. Take care!
