Merry Christmas!

Like a lot of you - we've been celebrating Christmas the last few days.  As a church musician it's my "busy" season.  I tried to make it fun as well as meaningful because I knew it would be a marathon of activity.

I want to thank my husband and my children.  They support what I do and my love of doing it.  My children know that unless they make the trip south, they'll see "Mama" in the Spring or Summer because "Mama's" busy playing for little shepherds and angels.  My husband keeps food on the stove for me as I buzz in and out - plus a vigil until I'm safely home after Midnight Mass. He also makes sure I'm up and ready to go for Christmas Day Mass.  I love you all and I thank you!

So - here's a recap of my Christmas Eve and Christmas.

I started with the 5 pm Children's Mass at St. Stephen First Martyr Catholic Church.  The children performed the "Christmas Story" and they did a marvelous job!

Next was the 7 pm Fort Stewart Christmas Eve Candlelight Worship at the Main Post Chapel on Ft. Stewart, GA.

Then - home for a brief rest and back to St. Stephen First Martyr Catholic Church for Midnight Mass.

A couple of hours sleep and back to St. Stephen First Martyr Catholic Church for Christmas Day Mass.

From our home to yours - Bill & I wish you a very Merry & Blessed Christmas!

Thanks for visiting!  Reia (& Bill)

It was work but it was so worth it! I loved your post at

By the way - my parents used to go on dates at the Varsity. (Mama was from Atlanta.)

I really enjoyed your post! I'm looking forward to what you're going to write about next. :-)

I hope your Christmas was very Merry and a wonderful experience. It appears as though you were quite busy but loving it. I visited Ft. Stewart with my aunt who was stationed there at the time approximately 14 summers ago and enjoyed it.

I slept 9 hours on Christmas night - I was some kind of blessed but tired.

Ft. Stewart has changed a lot in the last 14 years. We still have a ways to go but it's a very interesting place to live. I'm sure it would be boring to most but we're happy here.

Thanks for your comment! Reia
