Merry Christmas To All My Wonderful Friends ~~ Near And Far


The past few weeks have been rather hectic for me, so I have been away from blogging more than I like. I hope to be back soon. But I want to take this opportunity to wish all of my wonderful friends ~~ near and far ~~ a fabulous Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. This is always a lovely time of year, when things start to wind down, we can take a deep breath, look back in retrospect at the past year, and look forward to the new year and spring. To me, spring begins when the sun goes around the Tropic of Capricorn and begins its journey back to the north, bringing more light. So, as of two days ago, the days began getting longer, and the nights shorter. It's all good.  And remember, there are 12 days of Christmas, so pace yourselves.  Have a wonderful time, and ((((((hugs)))))) to all of you.

"When we recall Christmas past, we usually find that the simplest things - not the great occasions - give off the greatest glow of happiness."  ~Bob Hope

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Love, Jo

Sending many blessings to you on Christmas and into the New Year, Jo. I think Bob Hope got it right, and you're no slouch either.

My birth sign is Capricorn and I too look forward to the lengthening days, and to Spring. To be brutally frank I am so much brighter when Xmas is all done and dusted. (Who yelled Bah Humbug!?)

Merry Christmas to you, too, Jo. I am grateful for all the thoughtful posts you have written this past year, and how you have made me think and ponder. And sometimes be angry right along with you. You enrich my life, so I just want you to know I'm grateful.
