I went to the evening maas at St. Joan of Arc Catholic Church, the oldest Catholic Church in Las Vegas.
It was wonderful to see the smiles of the sweet little children and song all the beautiful Christmas songs with everyone.
I then went to The Grotto, at The Golden Nugget across the street and enjoyed seeing my friends who work there, and remembered me.
I made a new friend wit a retired gentleman from Hawaii and even though both of us were sitting at different tables, we found enough in common that the two tables became my table and we thanked God for small and big blessings and meeting one another too.

Below is a photo of me, Paulette Motzko at Weera Thai from last night, December 19th, 2017. I discovered this awesome Thai Restaurant when I went to go get my new glasses and Eyeglass World yesterday afternoon. I also discovered a great new place to get my hair done too and I made some new friends while I was at it. Mary my hairstylist, was also from California was one new friend and a wonderful, sweet handsome engineer was the second and one of my highlights of my year!
I was blessed all the way around and saved $200 on my two pair of progressive bifocals by not going to Sears Optical.
I hope you make the remaining days in 2017 memorable and very special.

Have a Christmas Tea
Enjoy a Christmas Picnic outdoors go somewhere so you can hear birds chirping in enjoying nature and great company and fantastic company. A beautiful and scenic place relatively close to you does sets the scene-and bring a nice pic-nic basket withave dishes, silverware and plates and watch the experiences that await you!
For 2017 I want more quality and create great times with all the people who matter most to me…..and to enjoy what I already own more.
