It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

How I love this holiday, crazy-making though it can sometimes be.  :)

I’ve been in low gear all week–tired from the whirlwind trip to Vegas–but I’m sure glad I got to go.  Equally glad to be back home, of course.  I’m something of a homebody, much as I love to travel.

It remains to be seen whether or not we’ll have a white Christmas here in Eastern Washington State–right now, it’s raining and there’s a good thaw underway, though we still have some snow on the ground.

Friends, your comments mean so much to me.  You say such kind things, things that warm my heart.  Thank you for that, and thank you for riding the same trail.  It’s an honor to keep company with you, even if it IS all virtual.  I think it’s wonderful that we can communicate through blogs, online chats, e-mail and the like.  Such a blessing!

I will definitely be blogging again on Monday, but let me just jump the gun a little here and wish you the merriest and most blessed Christmas ever, and the healthiest, most prosperous New Year.  I’m looking forward to 2013, and I hope you are, too.

Assuming, of course, that the world doesn’t end today.  :)  I love my daughter’s take on the Mayan Calendar question: “These are people who threw their children down wells as a way of praying for water–and we’re supposed to think they’ve got inside info on the End of Time?”  Amen, kiddo.

Have a good weekend and be sure to take the time to stop, put up your feet, and count your blessings.  Heck, the way time passes, it will be Christmas AGAIN before we know it!

May God keep you and yours in the palm of His hand, now and always.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all. I wish you all health, happiness, and much love throughout 2013 and beyond. I have come to love this blog. It has helped me grow and heal. Knowing I can turn on my computer and connect with others who share the love of reading, crafting, and family has been an immense comfort to me. And I hope it has been the same for you. Linda Thank you for your wonderful books, keep writing and sharing in the future.

    To start with i also want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a very healthy New Year and God bless each of you.
    Hi Linda i am glad you got to go to Vegas too. Yes i know when you get home you are equally glad because there is no place like home. Christmas is a great time of the year, you get in touch with family and friends you have not seen or heard from in a while and means so much. God bless you and your family.
    Norma Stanforth :-P

    Awww, thank you dear for that reminder of part of the Irish blessing, about the Lord keeping you in the palm of His hand – I’m part Irish, too :-). Yes, hectic days around the holiday, but we are all so blessed with family & just to live in a free country!! We won’t have snow here in the Deep South, only rain, but will still be cold. Wouldn’t seem like Christmas if we couldn’t have a fire!! I really feel blessed to know you, Linda, well, sort of know you… I feel like I do anyway. May Jesus bless & keep you & your family as well. He’s the reason for the season, after all :-)

    The Merriest Christmas and Happiest New Year to you and yours, too, Linda!

    Hubby and I spend the Eve with family. Then our children (married adults all) are “allowed” :wink: to visit inlaws and other relatives on Christmas Day.

    BTW…Boone may be redeeming himself, inept father that he is. :) Bless your hide, Linda, how DO you just keep creating these yummy men?! :wink:
