Wishing & Hoping & Holiday Posting




It's been a long while since my last visit, but I had to poke my head in for a look-see. Shame on me! So I picked up a broom, a dust rag, opened the windows to air the place out, made myself a cup of tea, and here I sit. It still feels like home.

Getting well is harder than getting sick. I gotta tell you, it takes work and dedication to get back on top. It takes time and quiet. It takes being alone but not lonesome. It takes patience and optimism. It takes a lot of other things too, but it takes wanting to get well. Not better. I want to be well. I want to be well, and whole, and healthy. I want to wish you a Merry Christmas, too! And so I will.

Merry Christmas!

With Love, 
from me &The Fat Chick

P.S. Hope to see you in the new year.

    1. Hey Pamela! Thank you. I am ever climbing upward. Had a booster shot yesterday as part of my physical. Guess who is sick? :) A sign that the new year will begin on a higher note.

    3. Hey! Did y'all have a white Christmas? Your response is gratifying! And mail is like icing on the top. I don't want to imagine anyone having had a sad holiday. Hope your new year started off on the right foot too. Be well.

  4. Hi Limner!! So happy to see your post -- at least your blog had just a few cobwebs and such. I think mine is buried deeper than Pompeii at this point (before the excavation). Merry Christmas to you and sincere well wishes!!

    1. Randall, hey! Thank you. I thought of you every time I tried to address a Christmas card. :) I did not come close to using all the cards but I still thought of you and your talent often and with a bit of envy. LOL! You know what I meant about neglect. I like that, and will try to do better. Hope you holiday was all you needed it to be. Your daughter's first Christmas as a wife had to be special, yes?
