On this Christmas Day, I want to wish you joy and peace, with love and laughter of family and friends. A wish for all my readers, no matter where you live or what your faith, of health and happiness on this day and every day.
I wrote these wishes in 2016, republished them in 2020 and I still wish for the same things. I wish for a world where tolerance and respect is the norm instead of the exception for all people. I wish for people of different faiths, backgrounds and choices to see others as merely different and not evil. I wish for all to live and let live, to pursue happiness as each sees fit, to learn from one another, to help one another, attend to making their lives as good as they can without tearing down others in the process. I wish for a world where all people spend their energy creating and serving instead of destroying or committing crimes, where the pursuit of excellence and knowledge takes center stage, where honest work is rewarded no matter what the job. I wish for an end to violence in all its forms. I wish for an end to homelessness and hunger. I wish for every shelter dog to find a home. I wish for peace in the world. I wish for everyone to have joy in their lives, and to spread joy to others.
On this Christmas Day, I’d like to take a moment to thank you, dear readers. I continue to be grateful that so many of you want to read my jabbering. I appreciate each and every one of you, those who only read, those who do the projects I offer or cook my recipes, those who take the time to leave wonderful comments, those who are inspired by a post to create their own imaginings, and everyone who shares on our Facebook group. The support of all of you makes writing a pleasure and gives me encouragement to keep blogging.
On this special morning, I’ll take a just a moment to be quiet from the hustle and bustle of holiday preparations and breathe, cherish the delights of the season, then My Sweet Babboo and I will enjoy Christmas Day together.
Enjoy this Christmas day and have a wonderful holiday season.
