Thank you to everyone who sent such beautiful holiday cards; I don't have them in front of me right now, so I'm not listing individual names in this post. (I will, but not now.) But your generosity and warm thoughts are much appreciated. Thanks!
A good friend's father passed away on Monday after a long and painful two-year battle with oral cancer. Things like this happen, and we can't really predict them or brace for them. With that in mind, I first wish you and your loved ones good health in the new year, along with peace, love, and a whole lot of laughter. Also, I hope you each spent the holidays in whatever ways have the most meaning for you.
May all the blessings of this time of year continue to touch us very single day, even as we live through the inevitable struggles. Much love and many good wishes for every single one of you.
