The year is wrapping up, and the fire is glowing. A chicken is in the oven, and a thick layer of snow is on the driveway. Time to relax, be still, and enjoy. Can't leave anyway, even if we wanted to!
Time to thank all of you for all you give during the year. For your support, your comments, your positive thoughts. Each and every one of you is special. Thanks to those who came and visited this year, and in past years, and enriched our lives with laughter, conversation and joy.
I give thanks for the continued recovery of my family members who were so ill last year... and for my friends who went through the same. You are all still here. That is a miracle.
I give thanks for my own good health, for that of Micha, and my other loved ones. For blessed events in the future. I give thanks for a roof well built and for the guest who will negotiate the curves in our driveway next season.
For all this, and so much more, I am eternally grateful.
