It is so hard on those that are alone for the holidays or not feeling the best. Sometimes it takes all the energy in the world just to answer the phone. I remember those days. I try to check in on those I know are home right now and just offer an ear. It is nice to know that you have been there when someone needed you and that is more fulfilling than any gift I could receive. What are your hopes for the holiday? We all have some and I bet they are closer to alike than not if we would really admit it. My list: family together, love, laughter, and hope and friendship. That sums it up now and 40 years from now. So, I am sending love to all through prayers, calls, notes and any means to let you all know...you are important to me. I have learned so much from each and everyone of you and you have made me a better person(I am still learning-just in case you are wondering). SO during this hectic time, take that moment and that prayer I send your way and Make It A Great Day!
