Today my uncle went home to be with the Lord, and to be with his wife, Nina and all our other relatives who I am sure are welcoming him even as we speak. It has rather changed the tenor of our family’s holiday celebrations--but life does go on, and there will be meals shared and gifts exchanged yet this week.

Right now I find myself at the end of the day. We’re in the middle of quite a nasty snow storm, with winds whipping up the four to six new inches of snow with gusts up to forty-five miles per hour. There’s been baking to finish, a huge meal to prepare and now put away and store. But dealing with the loss of my uncle, that I’ve just not had time to do yet.

So, not knowing what the next few days are going to entail, I wanted to wish all of you my Christmas best wishes. I will try to get around to read and comment to all of you whom I’ve come to enjoy sharing your thoughts and family’s and activities. I am continually impressed with the number of gifted, creative, sensitive, caring, sharing, widely diverse and infinitely talented people this blogosphere has made available for me to meet and interact with.

Joy to each of you and heart peace. I will be thinking of you, and will write as my heart allows me to do.

Merry Christmas!

I'm sorry to hear about your uncle...but I'm sure he is happy you have said, he had joined his wife and the Creator already...what a holiday for him.

Merry Christmas to you...this year is such a beautiful year for me, one of things I'm grateful is meeting good people online...and you are one of them. It's nice to celebrate Christmas with my list friends getting longer...

I'm sorry to hear about this, too. I hope you you find peace and comfort in gathering with your family.

I count you as one of those "gifted, creative, sensitive, caring, sharing, widely diverse and infinitely talented people" I've been lucky to meet this year. Wishing you all the best...
