It’s Almost Christmas!


As I look out my window this morning it’s snowing. It’s looking a lot like Christmas! I can’t believe it’s almost here!

Thank you to all readers who read and leave reviews!

Thank you to all my online friends who continue to support me!

Thank you to everyone who shows kindness to one another!

That is what this season is all about – love and hope, joy and peace!

Here is a song that comes to mind by Johnny Mathis! It is the only song that has my name in it!! Listen carefully for it! I love it! I hope it puts you into the spirit of Christmas! Enjoy!

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year! May 2018 be the best yet for you with yours with lots of blessings, peace and joy!


Blessings & Hugs to all!
