It’s been kind of a tough year for the Rankins in many ways. Some not-so-nice things happened. But still a lot of nice things also happened, and we manage to count a lot of blessings at the end of the year. First among those blessings is the continuing miracle of our son’s progress. We think of where we were just a few short years ago, and try to compare that to where we are today; it’s impossible because there is no comparison.

As it always was, and always shall be, this is the season of hope. Despite all of the not-so-nice things that have befallen us, we are hopeful for the days and years to come. My children give me that hope. Christmas ⎯ and all that it is and all that it represents ⎯ gives me that hope.

May you have a blessed Christmas and a hopeful New Year.

And so, as Tiny Tim observed, God bless Us, Every One!

P.S. Speaking of blessings and hope, GEAUX SAINTS!!!!

Merry Christmas for you and your family, Wade
We are also very glad with my son´s progress. It has been, is and will be difficult, but all the struggle is worth when I see my son better every day.
Thank you, for your strength and for sharing.
