MAGIC of Christmas
was present here in my home tonight
And it was my daughter Julie who made it happen!
I had to have spinal cortisone injections on Monday
for a pinched nerve, buldging disc and cyst on my spine
It really has side lined me the week of Christmas.
I did managed to get all the baking and dessert done last week along with the pasta for soup.
Julie did all the grocery shopping and prepared a fantastic meal for 14 people!
