I can't believe Christmas is now right upon us! I'm now prepared and looking forward to spending the day with family. I am also looking forward to some time off work with my husband, spending some time with family and some much need R&R.
The events in Newton last week to me is a reminder of how fragile life is and that we should count the many blessings we have. My heart goes out to those families affected by this tragedy this Christmas.
I feel extremely blessed by my husband, family and friends. This Christmas I am also blessed and extremely thankful to include all of you as friends. When I started this blog almost a year ago now, I never imagined the wealth of support, encouragement and advice I would receive. Not to mention the friendships developed. My only regret is that I didn't start sooner.
Thank you all so much for your support, encouragement, advice and friendship. Rick and I are both truly grateful. I am amazed at the connections we have made. These connections may not be face to face, but they are as important to us as our 'real life' friends.
I wish we could all get together and celebrate the season. How wonderful that would be! We ladies could chat over a glass of
submission wine and the guys could chat about how badly behaved angelic their wives/partners are ... On second thought, that last bit might not be such a good idea!
With the craziness of the last week or so I haven't been able to visit all of you. Please accept my apologies. To those of you who have recently contacted me for the first time, welcome! It is always a thrill to meet new friends and I apologise that I haven't yet been able to pay you a visit. I promise to do so in the new year!
Christmas is a time to focus on loved ones. Enjoy opening presents, good food and all the other usual trimmings. However, we must remember the true meaning of Christmas. To celebrate the birth of Jesus.
Rick and I wish you all a very Merry Christmas. We hope you have a safe and blessed Christmas with loved ones and a relaxing and enjoyable holiday. We will be absent from blogland between Christmas and new year and looking forward to seeing you all safe and well in 2013.
