I feel as if my parents and other family members passed are wrapping their celestial arms around me. I feel them more this year than usual. I always take time to pay homage to them each holiday season, but this year it seemed as if they came to me. I didn't send any Christmas cards or Christmas letter this year either (which is something I thoroughly enjoy doing). However, I will be sending out a little something to those who sent cards to me. I love to send cards, and receive them, too! I did, however, post a few things the past couple of weeks here on my website and also sent out a 'mass holiday e-mailing' (which I detest doing), just to keep in touch.
Much has changed in my personal life, and surrounding family members lives this past year. New doors have been opened, others have closed.
