Hello Big Brother

Christmas Eve is here again, and so am I like always to share a little special time with you. I finished my phone calls home to talk with family, opened presents that came in the mail, and ate way too many of the cookies that Judi sends every year. This year so many things have been different for the whole world.....a pandemic that keeps so many of us at a distance from each other......our country so divided......things so much harder for our Law Enforcement Officers.....that it really makes you wonder what the future holds in store for us all.

But this year we got to witness " The Christmas Star" which has not been seen since the Middle Ages, and not again in my life time. Some believe that it's the same star that was seen when Christ was born, and who knows maybe a message to us all to have a little faith in miracles during hard times. It really was very beautiful and I am glad that I got to see it.

I love and miss you each and every day. Not a day goes by that a part of me does not share it with you because you are what continues to motivate me to do my very best each and every day, to give all that I have to this life, to always stand tall, and be brave and courageous. I know you are beside me each step of the way, even when I stumble for a moment. Hope you are always proud of me. Watch over my Dog Man and his pups.

Love you forever and always
your baby sister
