At this very special time of year, when all the world should be alight with the spirit of Joy. It is hard to fathom the pain, suffering and trauma the families in Newtown must be enduring right now.
I had wanted to write a cheery note wishing all of you a wonderfully Happy, Healthy and Holy Holiday Season. But all our hearts became heavy when we learned of Friday's shooting at the Sandy Hook Elementary School. Having had small children, and now welcoming a whole new bunch of little Trumps into the world, the devastation brought by the mad young man is beyond belief.
There are no words of comfort for the families of all who lost their lives that day. Their hearts will ache forever more. We can only share their sorrow, offer our prayers and try and comfort them if they ever ask for our help.
As I said, I thought this would be a cheery Christmas - Hanukkah note to wish all of you the special pleasures and joys of this season. That it will re-unite you with family and friends, and bring you peace and love in abundance.
I wanted to share with you the arrival of our latest grandchild. The fourth, a son Spencer, to Don Jr., and his beautiful (and I would imagine a little tired!) Vanessa. They are such great and loving parents and the four babies are warm bundles of fun and energy. And Arabella Rose grows by leaps and bounds, and I am sure will have the beauty, grace and poise of Ivanka.
I am blessed, and at this special time of year, I know that. So, I send to all of you my loyal friends, fans and followers, my very best wishes for a Happy, Healthy and Holy Holiday Season.
May the blessings of the Holidays be with you always. And, may we keep a light in our hearts for the Angels God called home way too soon.
God Bless and Love,
