It was around this time last year that I was
sitting in the Homeowner's class before going
back to my roasting hot apartment where I
got to hear the shouting and fighting of
all my neighbors.
Now, I am sitting
in my quiet home watching snow fall on
the evergreens outside my study window.
I have turned on my Christmas lights,
and I am writing. Later, I will be at a pub
singing Christmas carols and seasonal songs.
For these blessings, I
am truly grateful.
