Whether you are standing underneath the mistletoe with your sweetheart,
Whether you are rushing home to be with your loved ones,
Whether you are gathering near the overloaded holiday dinner table,
Wherever you are struggling through year end commitments,
Whether you are wondering where life is going to take you next,
Whether you are standing on a cold dark windy beach with your dog and wondering how much longer until you see Mom again,
Wherever you are and whatever you are doing, I hope you find warmth and cheer (within you and outside you) during this last week of 2017.
As 2017 draws to a close, I want to take a moment to tell you that I am grateful for your readership. Despite a busy life, I continue to write because of the personal connections it helps me make with y’all.
Thank you for letting me share my stories with you. Thank you for reaching out to me and trusting me with your most personal stories.
I wish you a joyful holiday season surrounded by the warmth and cheer of family and friends.
I also wish you a happy and healthy 2018!
