Heck Of A Christmas - Round 4

me and Liz

This is the last round of Christmas pictures for the year.  

On Christmas, me and Jason went over to a friend's house for a feast.  Just like the few days leading up to, I ate too much and made myself miserable.  Holiday food is the best, but I'm glad I don't eat like that every day.  I'd hate myself, for sure.

After sitting around in food comas for a while, I went with a couple gal pals and my son, Adam, to the Senior Center to visit with the residents.  We made up goodie bags and handed them out.

On an interesting note, my Small Group had visited the Senior Center in late November to pick three names from the Angel Tree.  We purchased for those people and took the gifts back to the center.  We didn't put our names on the gifts, just a note that said we were a Small Group from The Crossing church.

While we were visiting random seniors on Christmas day, we chatted up with one lady in particular. She was a joy to visit with.  I bet we hung out for over 45 minutes.  During the last part of our conversation, she mentioned that a Small Group from The Crossing had given her a bunch of nice gifts.  Unbeknownst to her (and still the same) we were those people who had done that.  Gave me all the feels.
After the Senior Center visit, we went to another friend's home to visit, eat some more (!) and sing karaoke.  Me and Jason actually spent the night there and we ended up watching Through My Mother's Eyes.  (Don't watch it; Not worth it)

This was definitely one of my most memorable Christmases ever.

Now that it's all over, here's wishing you a fantastic 2017!

That's such a nice thing to do. I know there's elderly people who have no family. I know how much they appreciated those gifts and your company.God Bless you Terra for your kindness. Happy New Year to you & your family 😀🎉
