Shortly before my eye surgery, Anne and I made these reindeer. Aren't they cute? They consist of mini donuts, broken mini pretzels, and peanut M&M's. So easy to make! And she loved them, plus she only ate ONE! Just be sure and remember to put the M facing down! I had my eye surgery and it went well... but since I cannot wear my glasses and there is still swelling, It is very hard to see and things are blurry. I am also off balance and Phil has to lead me around at times. All to be expected. It will be better after the surgery on the other eye on the 16th. I am currently using NINE eye drops a day and will be until way into February. So I am hoping to resume posting at the end of this month! And I can't WAIT!! I am wondering what you have all been up to!! SEE you better than ever later in the month!!

“An eye can make the heart dance for joy.... One of the most wonderful things in nature is a glance of the eye; it transcends speech; it is the bodily symbol of identity.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
Beside ticking down the New Year, this eye clock is here to tell you something else. Starting Monday, I will be gone again for awhile. I am having eye surgery. Then two weeks later, I will have surgery on my other eye. I have been looking forward to it so much that I have been counting the minutes, just like this eye clock. I will finally be able to see without looking though a fog! Hopefully I won't be gone more than a week or so, but I may have to wear a patch on one eye till I have had surgery on both. I will miss you, but I will see you much more clearly when I come back! I wish for you and your families the best New Year ever!

“The angel said, “Don’t be afraid. I’m here to announce a great and wonderful event that is meant for everybody, worldwide: A Savior has just been born in David’s town, a Savior who is Messiah and Master. This is what you’re to look for: a baby wrapped in a blanket and lying in a manger.”
“I will sing for joy in God, explode in praise from deep in my soul! He dressed me up in a suit of salvation; he outfitted me in a robe of righteousness…”
“But now, by giving himself completely at the Cross, actually dying for you, Christ brought you over to God’s side and put your lives together, whole and holy in his presence. You don’t walk away from a gift like that!”
The birth of Jesus is the sunrise in the Bible. — Henry van Dyke
Peace and joy to all my wonderful blog friends. I will see you after a short Christmas break.
