Christmas Koffee Klatch
     If you are new to this forum family then you may be wondering what kind of goofy question is that on a health care forum. idea   We all suffer with medical conditions and with most of us there is pain involved...sometimes a lot of pain. Or maybe you are the loved one of one of these persons. This forum is all about how we help and support each other, how we gain back more quality to our lives, and how we can learn and share what we gain along the way and hopefully make not only our lives better but the lives of others who come to join us.

      But we need to also remember that there is the other side of life...the side that isn't concentrated on illness and pain. That's why we started the daily Koffee Klatch. This is a time to laugh, reminisce, chit-chat about the silly things in our lives...all fun things and no pain. In fact the 'P' word is not allowed...  turn    So each day we share our thoughts or experiences on a different topic. Often it includes food, sometimes we talk about our past, and other times we just get goofy! Laughter is our goal. So, please join us whether this is your very first day on Healing Well or you're a seasoned veteran.
Daily Question:
Share with us what your favorite Christmas memory is. Were you very young? Were you an adult and finally with your true love? Perhaps, with your grandchild jumping with excitement!
What was your most memorable Christmas?

And sorry I could not travel both

My best one was two years ago when my oldest son was here for Christmas eve. It is the only time so far that both of my kids were here for any part of Christmas. Sadly the year before that and then the last one and this one he hasn't been able to be here.

That one a couple of years ago was great. I really enjoyed having him here and watching him play with his little brother.

I am hoping he can be here next Christmas.

Of course this is not to say that I dont just love watching my youngest from the time he first sees all the presents under the tree to the time he finishes unwrapping all of them. He is the only kid I have ever seen that gets just as excited about getting new clothes as he does about new toys.

My most memorable Christmas was 2 years ago with Tim. It was the first Christmas he spent with us, and it was the first Christmas that we had peace. There was no yelling, no fighting, and the boys were behaving.

Memorable ones for me are the ones that are joyful and peaceful.

Merry Christmas!

My most memorable Christmas was when we lived in middle GA and we all received bicycles for Christmas. It was so warm outside we jumped on the bikes and rode up and down the road in short sleeves.

My most memorable Christmas was when I was five years old and our neighbor played Santa Claus. Of course, I thought it was the real Santa Claus. Out on the front porch was a beautiful red bicycle w/training wheels on it. I was five years old, and I remember that Christmas very vividly. It was a wonderful Christmas for a little kid.
