  19. Audra,
    What a beautiful gift by you and your husband.
    May your Christmas be one that is filled with many moments of love, happiness, and joy!
    And – may our world continue to move more deeply into a real sense of peace…peace that starts within and spreads out in loving actions and care for others.
    Merry Christmas!!

    Sending you hugs for the holidays,
