That made me smile. I have been really missing my father.

I was finally able to visit my neighbor and hand him a large makosh and explain how sorry I am about Alice's passing. Three cards including a donation had been sent but I have been very upset. He and I reminisced and he tried to fight back tears but could not. February 14th would have been their anniversary. They were married at least 60 years. To lose someone so close to Christmas is hard. He said he did not know how he was going to be able to go on living.

I am so glad that I found the gumption I needed to get this done. The problem wasn't so much the baking--I was procrastinating because I have been so weepy over losing Alice and I was afraid to visit lest I fall apart when I was the one suppose to be the comfort.

I must admit, I feel a whole lot better having done the right thing. Joe knows me well enough to know how sensitive I am and he told me that Alice loved me, too.

There has been a lot of loss--too much in my life and it can be so hard to lose the people you love the most. Sometimes being the youngest means having to say goodbye to the most people.

I know this is a strange "smile" but I am so pleased that I did this--showed Joe that I cared and baked for his Christmas. Makosh is one of his favorite things next to pie. And, I reminded him that he had a large extended family who loves him and to let them be there for him, now.

DH helped me make candy tonight. It is so much fun when we can do things together! I was especially smiling when I looked over to see a big blob of chocolate on his nose!

Susan, I am glad you had a good visit with your neighbour. You seem more settled tonight and that is nice to hear.
