Merry Christmas

It's Christmas morning and I'm the only one up. It's a peaceful moment before the bedlam of gifts, food, packing, and travel. (We're headed to my brother's house in St. Louis for a few days.)

I'd like to take this quiet moment to wish everyone here a Merry Christmas. Of the gifts that I will open today, the best ones are the ones I already have: my loved ones and my friends. I count each of you among them. Have a wonderful day, however you choose to spend it. Take care of yourselves and take care of just one more person in some small way this holiday season. Let's show everyone what it really means to have a happy holiday.

Merry Christmas, Birdie, to you and yours. Hope your new year is touched with the grace whose birth we celebrate today, the greatest gift of all.

Thank you, Birdie, for sharing your wisdom and always being there. My wish for you is the same as Jeaux. I can't say it any better. Merry Christmas!

I swear, those moments of being alone, in solitude and oneness, are some of life's best. Merry happy day after!

Glad you enjoyed your Christmas. I had some splendid days off, with a very special guest keeping me company for a considerable part of it. Wishing you and yours all the best.

I also love those quiet moments early in the morning before the day really begins. Just something about that...
And I love this Birdie...
"Take care of yourselves and take care of just one more person in some small way this holiday season" words to love and live by!
Happy New Year!
