And a healthy and prosperous New Year!
It's Christmas, whether or not the preparations are complete. What a relief!
For me, it's been a very busy season. I'm tired and a little frazzled, but I'm looking forward to attending a Christmas church service, exchanging gifts, cooking a nice family dinner, and then a quiet Christmas afternoon of conversation, movies, and games.
And there will be sweet memories of dear family members and friends and the Christmas celebrations of other years. How could we ever forget them?
When I look back at the last year, one of the highlights for me has been Prairie Bluestem and its readers. I've enjoyed your comments and e-mails.
I've known some of you for many years, and I've only recently met some of you through the blog. Old friend or new, I appreciate your company as we go down the road.
May God bless you this Christmas. As Tiny Tim put it, "God bless us every one!"
