It’s rather astounding to realize that Christmas will be here in only three days. I made my last batch of fudge this morning, the gifts are all bought and wrapped. the ones to distant important people in my life have been mailed and received, Christmas cards are long ago sent. Just one more dish to make for the wonderful big Christmas brunch my daughter-in-law and son provide on Christmas Day. It feels good when we finally can see that light at the end of the tunnel.
This year has been filled with wonderful surprise phone calls from so many dear friends who live far away. Such a simple gesture that can mean so much, especially at this time of year. We’ve all talked for hours and, frankly, it’s something we should do more often. I think we need to slow our lives down and remember while social media is easy, something a bit more personal (such as an actual phone call) can mean so much more.
I’m on my fourth or fifth rewrite of my current WIP and just about have that ready for my editor. Of course, I know she is busy with the holidays and her own family now, but come the first of the year, off it will go to her and my beta readers. Perfect ending for 2018.
The purpose of this blog post is simply to tell each and every one of you how important you are to me and how thankful I am to have you in my life. My wish is that we all have a wonderful Christmas and that 2019 is the best year ever. I no longer make resolutions or create expectations for the coming year, but I am always hopeful and looking for the best being yet to come.
Many blessings to each and every one of you.
