Many other people made the holidays here easier for me. Kittie and Pam both sent Christmas packages full of extra special things, including Christmas treats, a little Christmas tree, a Christmas stocking, and even wrapped Christmas gifts. Pam and Richard sent me the old version of the movie…The Bishops Wife, a sweet Christmas story with Loretta Young, David Niven and Cary Grant. I watched it on Christmas Day after church. It was fun to watch and brought back sweet memories of watching it with my mom and gramma. I got great packages from my friend Dixie, and my brother and his wife Joanne. Both had really fun, interesting and nutritious treats. Dixie’s package was of course fun and creative..just like her (I know she would want me to also give credit and thanks to her husband Joe, and son Jesse). Her package was full of fun things, and delicious things. She included little individual containers of dill pickles. Who knew dill pickles could taste SO good. My sister Nancy’s package included a book and a book light. The book light was a great idea. I’ve been able to read every night after dark. Karen; E.J.’s mom sent a package full of candy canes. She thought it would be fun to show the kids in Tchekpo our tradition of candy canes. She was right. Word spread fast about the candy canes. The kids loved them, and it was fun to see them understanding what I meant when I explained that we hang them on the tree.
