Merry Christmas... and Podcast #6


THANK YOU... I'm so very thankful for each of you who offer great gifts of friendship here, and beyond... This place is an extra home--and it's because of all of you who make this a happy place to be and share life.

Podcast... To close the year, a bit of reflection, thoughts on the year ahead, a little poetry, and wonderful music from my hubby TJ! In this episode I also note that the podcast will be on hiatus for a while.  

Celebrations... For the remainder of December I'll be mostly offline, sporadically checking email, etc. when I can. Days ahead will be for visiting, celebrating, feasting, church-going, and more! I will be taking a blog break from now and through much of January too...So I'll meet you back here in the New Year. In the meantime, wishing you all happy days!

Gifts... The gift of LOVE... The gift of PEACE... The gift of JOY... May all these be yours this Holiday Season and in the New Year... Merry Christmas! :)))

P.S. Update 16/12: I've closed comments for now, as I'll be mostly offline for some days... MANY THANKS to all who shared a comment here already, or sent emails, ecards and snail-mail cards with Happy Christmas wishes and adding to our holiday cheery... THANK YOU!! :)))

  3. Enjoy your Christmas break! I'll miss you.
    Re: comments on your previous post: If you and TJ ever make it out to the West Coast and Los Angeles, I suggest you visit Union Station in downtown LA. There is a piano in the waiting room area and anyone may sit down and play whatever they want on it! TJ would have fun :)
    Happy Advent and Happy Christmas to you and yours!

  5. Your podcast as usual is just beautiful. I loved the poem and the words from Oh Holy Night. The music has just felt like Christmas. Have a most wonderful Christmas and New Year. You have inspired me to think about 2019 and what I hope to accomplished. I thought I had really lightened our belonging this year, but now I see more I need to do. Other than that just continue yarn things and camera things, plus reading.
