Reasons to Smile

Good Morning.  It's hard to sleep, there is unexplainable joy inside my heart.  It's been there awhile, as we concentrate on the good.  Yesterday, the Chiefs played an incredible game, however it could not compare to the game in our own neighborhood.   Eddie and the neighborhood kids played their own football game, even Ally chased the ball.   I raked a few leaves feeling so thankful for the laughter and cheers.  It was a beautiful weekend; we even went on a bike ride. Maverick still beams with the pride from Wiscurzoos, and he has no plans to stop.  Mimi and Papa arrived home from their 10 day vacation. We were so very happy to see them.  With a great big smile Ally said, "Papa you are so much fun." And at night it is so much fun to see all the visitors at the Wishing well and cars stopped enjoying the lights.  Eddie is working hard to add Away in the Manger, which Ally can sing so beautifully. There are so many reasons we are thankful. These are the reasons to smile as we spend time with family and friends.  We miss Mason, but he is right here with us.   As Maverick tries to beat his video game scores.  We smile and reminisce.  We carry on not in sadness this Christmas, but with love, and laughter just as he would have wanted.  The flashbacks and reminders are sometimes painful, but they keep his memory alive. I believe in Joy at Christmas and all year.  I believe, Mason is the reason there is extra joy in our hearts.  Our hearts have grown in each other and all those that surround, thanks again.  Merry Christmas to you, our family.
