Christmas, Changes, and My Private Blog

This Christmas has a special magic, a blessing, wrapped around it, after such a challenging year. I feel grateful for Gary and the kids being together, and for the beautiful week we’ve been having together. They deserve this time together.

I feel like this blog has changed so much, since I have changed so much. I don’t post as frequently as I used to, but sometimes life demands more attention and won’t settle for “Can you wait until I finish this post?” I am still opinionated and mouthy, but I have had to fight so hard for my family this year, I am simply enjoying watching them together, sharing time with them, feeling them close to me.

I have updated my private blog, and I finally caught up on adding new readers who have requested access. If you do not already have access to my private blog, leave a comment or send me an e-mail:

I am leaving work early today and heading home to appreciate each laugh, each “I love you”, each smile and spontaneous hug.

I hope everyone takes a moment from the spending, decorating, partying, wrapping, unwrapping, and eating to step back and feel what matters most in your heart.

Merry Christmas!

    I would love an invite. I think I’ve been stalking you long enough on this blog to warrant an invite to be able to stalk the private one also! (Uh, you know I’m just kidding about the stalking part, right? 😉 Anyway, I’m pamcee71 at gmail. I’d appreciate it.

    Hi everyone, I’ve added a few of you to my private blog readers, and if I haven’t gotten to you, please bear with me! I’ve been really busy but will get to it as soon as I can.

Don't be shy! Tell me how great I am. Or not. Share your feelings with the group.
