Merry Christmas & Blessings For the New Year!

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Lola Audu~Audu Real Estate~Grand Rapids, MI Real Estate

It's been an interesting day online.  In between doing all the stuff that needs to be done for the holiday celebration which has included: cleaning, tackling the pile of laundry and re-shelving wayword books that have a way of landing in all sorts of nooks and crannies, I've dropped into several live conversations online via Twitter and watched a great Christmas eve service online.

We've got tons and tons of snow over here in Grand Rapids, MI...so it will be a very, very white and cold Christmas.  But, we're looking forward to time with the family and reconnecting with friends.  2008 has been an extraordinary year in so many ways.  There have been moments when I shook my head in wonderment at what was going on.  Yet, I'm thankful for God's grace and mercy and pray for His continued guidance and blessing in your life in the year ahead.

Lola - no snow here, but chilly, gray and rain expected. Tomorrow will be a grand day to hunker down with visiting family and enjoy the day. Have a wonderful holiday.

Lola, Merry Christmas to you and your family. Yea, it is cold here and the ground is white. My oldest is stuck in Seattle, her flight was canceled and rebooked for in the AM. Say a prayer she will make it home, it is very hard for her and us. Jamie and Matthew are here and they are both deployed in January so we really want her home.

Jeff...What...no sunshine in CA? But, at least you probably won't have temperatures below zero.  :)  Wishing you and your family a wonder-filled Christmas.  Thanks for stopping by to extend your greetings.

Merry Christmas - we keep going from ice, to snow, to rain and back to ice....NY is funny that way - the "winter mix" weather can be difficult. I wasn't able to finish my shopping because of it.  Tried to do some today, but the crowds were INSANE!  I think everyone had the same problem - so it was just nutty out there! 

Hopefully 2009 will be a better year for all of us - especially our beleagured sellers!

MERRY CHRISTMAS! I love the water video =) BTW, I slept most of the day, then got ready for church where I had to sing a solo. I could have done better =/ But I guess God doesn't mind.
