December Already???

Wow!! It's December already?? When I think of December, it does make me smile!! Lots going on in December! I know I haven't been around as much and I had promised myself that I would get better at blogging and I just couldn't. 

A few weeks ago, my mom had a stroke... It broke my heart.... 

It is such a shock when anyone gets sick, suffers a heart attack, has an injury, suffers a stroke... It turned our whole world upside down. My sweet mom who is the center of our family fell victim to a stroke (and she didn't realize it for 2 days but that's a whole other story for another day!!!) and we were lost! 

Let us fast forward 3 weeks and she doing much better and is going through rehab to regain strength on her right side. They said she has a clot on her right side that caused the stroke. She has difficulty walking and doing some things but we are confident that she will be *almost* 100% soon. I mean, she will never be back to her old self but she is trying! So, that is the reason for my long and infrequent posts. I am thankful for the positive healing thoughts she has been given!! We feel the love for sure!! 

So, with that said, we are thankful that she will be home for the holidays. Our Lola will be with us! Speaking of holidays, I am so excited that our elf, Max has made a return to out home!

Also in the month of December, my friends and I at The Primary Chalkboard are celebrating this month with an advent calendar of goodies! Each day we will have a little treat for you from one of our author/bloggers. You can only get that treat for that particular day so make sure you check back often.

I hope you all enjoy this calendar of events and check back often here and there! 

Have a wonderful week!
