Wishing you and yours a joyous holiday season and a very happy New Year! Merry Christmas! I have a tendency to be overly sentimental, especially around the holidays, so I'll try not to get mushy.
This past year has seen many changes in my life: I welcomed a new family member, rode an up and down roller coaster with my writing, and I made many wonderful new friends. I'm blessed with a life in which I have enough, not only for myself, but to help others in need. May we all be blessed with "enough." Not only enough food, shelter, and warmth, but enough friends, happiness, laughter, and good memories in the making.
If you're reading this, as a dear friend from Germany says, "Consider yourself hugged."
