Tomorrow when the sun goes will end Advent 2011 and begin the real season of Christmas 2011. This Advent season, which is coming to an end was a very difficult one for me. Having dealt with first a tooth abscess and the death of one of my teeth during the weekend of Thanksgiving and having to go to the dental emergency at the University of Connecticut Medical And Dental Hospital to have it treated, at first having been given the opportunity to have a root canal treatment and then being told that the tooth was not worth being saved and down the road it will have to be removed.
All the stress of the above incidents lead to I having just dealing with a cold which has to an extent affected my soprano singing voice, which may force me to go a bit lower in my singing range as well.

Merry Christmas-to-be to you, also, Biggirl. Thank you for sharing the story.
Your welcome! We never really appriciate the real meaning of Advent/Christmas until we have been through difficulties.

Thank you! Very beautiful —— Thank you my good Lord Jesus -— such great love-—
What I went through makes me much more loving and appriciative of those who have to carry a much heavier cross of suffering, as well as giving me the opportunity to help them out in turn.
Thank-you, Merry Christmas, God Bless!
