Merry Christmas To All My ActiveRain Friends In 2019

Mortgage and Lending with George Souto NMLS #65149 FHA, CHFA, VA Mortgages NMLS #65149

Merry Christmas To All My ActiveRain Friends In 2019.  Christmas has always been a day my wife and I have spent with our two son's, but now that both of them are married and out of the house we have to share them with others.

My oldest son moved is now in Seattle, WA, and even though my youngest son is still in CT we have to take turns sharing the Holidays with the In-Laws.  So we have had to get a little more creative in celebrating Christmas.

Fortunately this year it is out year for my youngest son and his wife to spend Christmas with us, and we will be doing Christmas lunch/dinner at his house.  Before we sit down to eat we will gather around the TV set, and FaceTime on their wide screen TV set with my oldest son, his wife, and my gorgeous granddaughter Elizabeth.  While FaceTiming we will opened the Christmas gifts we sent to each other.  This is different but special in its own way

Here in ActiveRain we may have a different kind of relationship, but in many ways it is also a family in its own special way. So I would like to take this time to say thank you for all of your support during this past year, by following my blogs and making comments.  ActiveRain is a special community and family because all of you have made it so.

So in this time and season of joy, I want to say thank you for your friendship, and making me feeling like a part of your lives.  I hope that I have made you feel the same. 

I hope this Christmas will be a very joyful and special one.  Merry Christmas To All My ActiveRain Friends In 2019.

Good evening George. I hope you enjoy a beautiful and warm Christmas. I knew your family was divided but at least you have your one son and family with you this year. It is a joy to know you albeit from a distance. Merry, Merry.

Hi George,
I hope you had a wonderful day with family and a fun Facetime session too. Our holiday celebrations evolve as families grow and spread across the country (even the world).  Sounds like you have figured out a good compromise. 

Now, it's time to start looking forward to 2020.

Hi George - we have been starting to have those Christmases where my daughter goes between us and in laws.  We are fortunate that her in laws have invited us.  I am very grateful for your support and glad we don't live so far away and get to see each other from time to time.
