As I sit writing this, there are 49 minutes left in this day, Christmas Day. I made it. LOL The ‘holidays’ are finally over for me! That sounds awful, I know. But, unfortunately, I cannot help but feel relieved once they are behind me. This one was rather harsh, but, I made it and I hope everyone understands.
I have met so many wonderful people since I found my way in to the scrapbooking community. There are as many in the area of my interest in my spirituality. Folks have been so very kind, generous of their time and knowledge and, more than any thing, supportive of my learning, both Photoshop/scrapbooking design-wise and spiritually.
For my birthday, the other day, and for this holiday season, I have received an outpouring of gorgeous and meaningful greetings and gifts. The senders are the most beautiful folks I have met and befriended, here, online. I have sat down, I don’t know how many times, to post a holiday greeting for my friends and to wish them all the best holiday ever. But, with my emotional state, I turned into a bawling fool before I could even get started good. Now, though, with the better part of the day behind us, I feel I can do this. LOL Empathy is a pain in the heart! LOL
I just want to say that the friends I have, the casual acquaintances and those who(m?) I have come to know better, are some of the most wonderful folks I have ever had the privilege of knowing! In a way, you know little about people you meet online. But, you also get a chance to learn a little about a person before you decide to befriend them. Either way, those friends are special to me. This holiday season, I have been honored to have some of the best friends in the whole wide world!
Since, by now, it is after midnight and, thus, no longer the ‘day’, and I never did get a personal note out to each of them, I just want to give a little “shout-out” to just a few good folks:
Magickal Scraps is my home. You ladies are the most beautiful people I know! You all have taught me so much about myself. Thank you! Ladies! Cheers!
Jodiann, I love ya, Toots! If ever there were a lady who could charm you off your tootsies, you’re the lady! Your enthusiasm for life is amazing! You are my driving wheel! I thank you, sweetest!
Donna K, Bless You, dear heart! I hope this holiday was not too hard for you. You have been in my thoughts so much. I wish you peace of mind and heart. I am here.
Keryn, you are my rock, my soul friend! You give me permission to be ‘okay’. I love you so much for that! With a world between our locations, I feel you are next to me, often. I think of you a lot. I hope you have had a good holiday.
And, Karen, Bless Your Heart! I don’t know how you keep on going, sweet lady! May the Light shine down on you and your loved ones, now, and always. You deserve much happiness and I believe you will know it, once again, very soon. It will all be okay, honey. I love you!
There are you other folks, too, of whom I wish the very best. I hope you received more than you ever dreamed, this holiday and that each of you find much happiness and prosperity in the New Year.
From me to you, my online friends:
I took this image over to Blingee and “Blingeed” it, too.
MERRY CHRISTMAKWANZANNUKAYULE, YA’LL!
Love, Light and Wishing you All Peace and Joy,
