May your days be merry and bright…

Like, for reals.

I’m not even kidding.

May your days be merry and bright!

And sparkly!

Not so much sparkly in a Ke$ha sorta way… but sparkly in a child’s eye sorta way.

This last week, or 2, or many months…. have been filled with lots of ups and downs… personally and beyond. I try to keep this space on the *up* side of things because I figure news outlets can cover the rest.

As we have been drawing closer to Christmas, I have been drawing closer to my family. Partly due to the “spirit” of the season, partly due to my awareness that this world is a painful place, and partly due to the fact I am discovering that despite the fact my kids are not babies anymore… they still reach for me… and almost need me more.

So… from my filled, and sometimes burdened heart, and definitely even more often distracted self… knowing not all who may read this recognize the Christmas holiday… I do want to extend a wish and hope for blessing over this season that is peppered with many different observances.

But because I do celebrate Christmas, and am the praying kind… I also want to say Merry Christmas, friends. Blessings, hope, and prayers as we press on… standing at the edge of a new year.

I want to thank YOUS GUYS… because you have blessed me. An occasional comment comes in that leaves me scratching my head, but this space has become such a lovely place to land. I am blessed to have been able to connect with some great people here. Thank you for the important role you play in helping make this place safe. And fun.

And nice.

I like nice.

So… Onward with sparkles and silliness and expired spice confessions…

In case you are not familiar with what year it is… 2002 was OVER TEN YEARS AGO.


From my family to yours.
