Thanks.

I am happy to see that people acknowledge that this holy day is the birth of Christ. Sometimes people go through hoops to avoid mentioning this. In Canada we are slowly replacing the Merry Christmas with: Have a nice holiday. This is because we must not offend anyone. I t is a time of peace. I never understood how that could be offensive.

I want to wish all a MERRY CHRISTMAS.

Well, here it is Christmas Eve. As everyone who knows me knows, I have been super busy this past month. Lots of visits and sharing the Christmas joy with children and parents alike. Here is a quote I received in an e-mail I received last night from one of my "stops" during the evening:

""My children will always remember this. You have been given a gift that you so lovingly share with so many others. You have touched our hearts this evening and given us such a wonderful memory."

Just kind of makes it all worth while. I do so enjoy being Santa Claus at this time of the year and notes like the one above just make it all so sweet.

Carol and I want to wish all of our Heartland Family a very Merry Christmas and a Joyous New Year. As we go through these next few days, let's all remember what this season is all about.

As we say "Tis' The Season" and it truly is. Reflecting on the past year we are glad to have met so many Heartland Family friends. We wish everyone a safe and happy holiday and a healthy and happy New Year. The East Coast happiness will begin as soon as this snow melts and we are on our way to South Carolina to meet some more of the family. So, from the New Jersey Chapter to all of you MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Sunday evening at the wee truck stop I was parked at was also a Greyhound stop.I went inside to use the restroom, outside the ladies there was a young girl around 18-20 yrs old crying her eyes out. While inside the mens room I overheard her outside on phone telling someone she needed $10, as they were charging her for extra bags. I guess they couldn't help her. I walked out mens room, she was still outside crying, I took a 20 out of my wallet handed it to her said Merry Christmas and I walked away. I saw her tears go from sad to happy. I guess I did my good Samaritan bit that day. I see a lot of folks trying to get money all the time, with their scams in rest areas etc, my car broke down, you know the type, they make a career out of mooching, but in this case it wasn't a scam and I didn't even think twice about helping this young lassie out. Yes it was only a 20, but it still saved her day and it made me feel good that I helped someone out.
You all have a Merry Christmas and a safe and Happy New Year

Ken,

What a touching tale! My eyes filled up as I was reading it. She got the help she needed from someone who is truly blessed with understanding and compassion:angel:. Good deed and great story. Now that's what I love about my Heartland Friends!

A very Merry and blessed Christmas to all - as well as a Happy New Year filled with prosperity and safe travels. We are enjoying our Bighorn here in Florida, celebrating the birth of Christ with our fellow RV'ers in a most beautiful park lined with 2009 (yes, 2009) glorious luminaries - most beautiful !!!

Hello again,
We had a very Merry Christmas when my doctor came in this afternoon and to me I could go home. What a wonderful Christmas present. He sent with a Christmas bag full of medicine to continue my healing. And then once we got home we got another present when we saw Tom Atkinson bringing Judy home from the hospital. God is good and thank you Lord for a Blessed Christmas. May all our Heartland friend find their new RV in the coming year. Thanks for your prayers and wishes as they have worked. Keep them coming as we still have much healing to do. God Bless....

I echo Terry and Larry's statements. It's wonderful that you and Judy both were able to spend Christmas "at home". God's blessings are boundless.

Welcome aboard Cap! Retirement is grand. Been doing it for 10 years now. I could only muster 23 years. Do I miss it? Like I have heard a hundred times "the only thing I miss is the guys!"
