Christmas Preview

I've rarely had time to get on my blog since returning to work. It's just not easy to work full time and still be a wife and mother. It does teach me more appreciation of our time together at home!

An update on my grandmother:
She is still with us. She is in hospice and still at home. She sounds good on the phone, but she is getting very weak. We feel the end is near, but only God knows her appointed hour. Our family is loading up in a few weeks to be with her for Christmas (but shhhh....it's a surprise for her).

Fall will soon be ending as winter takes over. The leaves have almost completed their shedding process and the temperatures continue decreasing with no promise of "one more" warm day. The stores have already decorated for Christmas neglecting Thanksgiving in the process and even a local radio station is playing 24/7 Christmas music. The kids are excited at the thought of beautiful dresses, Christmas carols, new toys, and time with family. I'm trying to share in that with them, but at times am held back knowing there will be no more for my Grandmother. Actually I feel like I'm trying to pray her through this Christmas!

I'm reminded everywhere I go that God is good ALL the TIME!! We all have to face our mortality yet I am rejoicing as I know that I have an immortal soul and spirit. As for my grandmother, regardless of when Jesus calls her home I can rest assured knowing I will see her again.

Now to figure out what people want for Christmas!! I think I'll wait till after Thanksgiving! :P

Rolex has fleshed out the Rolex Day-Date II replica watches collection much more than the Rolex Datejust II at this time. The Rolex Day-Date II is only available in precious metals and there is no steel version. You can get the Rolex President in 18k white gold, yellow gold, pink gold, or platinum. Reviewed here is the Rolex Day-Date II replica watches ref. 218235, which is actually the second least expensive Rolex President replica watches uk. The least expensive is about $2,700 cheaper in 18k yellow gold. That feels like a rather large price difference from 18k yellow to 18k pink gold, even if it is Rolex's in-house produced Everose gold whose color is said not to fade. Based on that information, you can see why the Rolex Day-Date II replica watches is the "fancier" model. Rolex replica watches sale has intentionally offered distinct metal choices so as to give each of the watches a different type of buyer. There are also other differences such as the available bracelet as well as the dial choices.
