Happy Holidays to All!


This post will mark my 1,484th post-it's been a little over four years of having this site and I thank all of my readers, the ones I know and the ones who lurk (well most of the lurkers anyway) and how many wonderful people I have met through this site and friends I have made. Had you told me four years ago I would have made friends over the internet, I would have thought you were insane. I've watched you get married, have babies, watched your children grow, shared in your joys and your sorrows and am grateful to all of you. You have made me grow as a person and I hope to continue to grow and meet new friends for 2009.

Personally, we've had our ups and downs this year. Michael's brother died of cancer several months ago and we lost a few friends suddenly. But we've also had the joy of new babies being born within our extended family and friends, as well as gained a new sister-in-law/aunt for our family.

My health, and I am knocking on wood here, has been the best it's been in 7 years this year, Elena's doing fantastic in school and is very happy. My husband is still the wonderful, thoughtful, funny man I married 12 years ago and for these things I am most grateful, as I am equally grateful for our old and new friends we have made over the past year.

I am wishing you all peace, happiness and love during the holidays and throughout the New Year and will see you in 2009!

Happy holidays to you too Deneen!

We received the card and letter from Elena yesterday. Em read it aloud on our way to the mall and we were all rolling by the time we hit our destination. You have quite the character there and she's wonderful! Em's is so excited to be her penpal and she truly counts Elena as one of her bestest friends.
