What greater gifts at Christmas than the memories of our friends.  At this time of  year, as we receive their cards from near and far, we are reminded of the special place each one has played in our lives. I am most grateful for those friends who have made me a better person, their example a shining light in my life.  The ornaments of Christmas are not just red, silver and green, they are our friends, our families and the little unexpected moments and miracles we will never forget.
