~~~~~Merry Christmas to YOU!~~~~~~

Dear Readers,

I wanted to take this opportunity to wish each and every one of you and very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I hope the holiday season brings you many blessings - of pausing to spend to spend time with the ones you hold dear and remembering the "reason for the season".

When I reflect on 2009 I know I will count blogging as one of the best things I did, for me. It was a leap and one that has proven to be well worth it. I thank you all for your support and friendship.

Our family will be leaving our little Forever Cottage tomorrow so that we may spend the holidays with family....I wanted to leave you all with these favorite words of holiday wisdom....from the magnificent Dr. Seuss himself!

"And the Grinch, with his grinch-feet ice-cold in the snow, Stood puzzling and puzzling: How could it be so? It came without ribbons! It came without tags! It came without packages, boxes or bags! And he puzzled three hours, till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before! Maybe Christmas he thought, doesn't come from a store. Maybe Christmas....perhaps...means a little bit more!"

See you in 2010!

    Want to know something funny?... I have those last three sentences of your Grinch quote up on the chalkboard in my kitchen. It's my all-time favorite Christmas cartoon... I could probably recite the whole thing right now... but somehow, this year, it meant something different to me... that Christmas doesn't "come from a store" seems to be on everyone's mind and that, I think, is a very good thing.
    Thanks for this lovely post.

  4. Have a wonderful time girlie..
    i hope you got your dress on time.

  5. Oh, what a perfect quote! I love the message in that book/movie.
    Travel safely and may your holidays be merry!

  6. Merry Christmas Jill! I hope you have a great time and enjoy!
