Now that the living room is ankle-deep in toys (both Offspring's and JF's), I thought I'd take a moment to check in and see how all of you are.
Did you have a nice holiday? For those of you celebrating Hanukkah, I admire your stamina. I'm wiped out. Did you enjoy the time with your families? What gifts were the big hits?
I have been very fortunate. I live in a wealthy nation, surrounded by people who love me. I am in no mortal danger (unless you count my overly gaseous husband) and I'm free to speak my mind, either here on my blog, or in person. I'm relatively healthy, and so are most of my loved ones. I have wonderful friends, a job I enjoy, and money enough to pay my bills and buy a few extras. I'm a very lucky individual. Thank you, Lord, for heaping these blessings upon me. I may not seem appreciative all of the time, but I am. I truly am.
Thank you, Blog friends, for all of the support that you have shown me. Thank you for your constant encouragement, and your many kindnesses. I wish you all a wonderful 2006, and many of your own blessings, both big and small.
