Christmas really is the most wonderful time of the year. My parents made it that way for my brother and me, and I've done my best to duplicate celebrating the holidays with my own family.
Our Christmases are steeped in tradition. I host special teas for authors, my swimming friends, and local knitters each year. I also enjoy baking and spending time with the grandkids as we remember others less fortunate than ourselves. This year several of the grandchildren and I will be putting together kits to fight Ebolain Africa as one of our charity endeavors. Then the weekend before Christmas the family will gather for our annual progressive dinner.
I consider my readers part of my family too, so let me take this opportunity to thank each one of you for a wonderful 2014. Merry Christmas and may God shed His blessings on you and yours in 2015!
