As crazy as this time of year can be, and reading through the posts the last few days can confirm this. Everybody has been busy cooking, shopping, wrapping and getting ready for the holidays. But take just a minute and try to enjoy our crazy families, friends and all the get togethers. And thank God, or whatever your belief is that we are here with the ones we love. We all have those special people that are missing from our gatherings but know that they are in a wonderful place watching over us. This has been a rough year for some and I hope that the next few days everyone can feel the truly Wonderous Joy of Christmas! I hope for hearts to be bursting like the Grinchs. And if everybody is eating all the goodies they have been posting there will be some bursting bellies too. Tis the season to enjoy!
I was going to attempt to say Merry Christmas in a few different languages but if you read through the following list you will see where I would have some way screwed something up. So wherever you are here is your Merry Christmas!
