Merry Christmas and a Happy Holiday!

I hope everyone is having a beautiful Christmas season with your loved ones. And for those who are unable to, such as some of our Military and First Responders, know that you all are in our thoughts and prayers.

Let's take time to appreciate all that we have this year, as we get ready to bring in the new year! What are you appreciative for?

I currently write to you from San Antonio, Texas. I'm spending much needed time with my parents while enjoying my Mom's delicious home-cooking. For this, I'm most thankful for. The only negative aspect of this is the goodbye soon to follow. For those who are in their late 30's, I'm sure you can agree that family goodbyes get harder with time. For those who are in their lively 20's, just enjoy the time spent with your loved ones.

Again, have a wonderful holiday season, hopefully filled with much good cooking, laughs, and company. See you all next year!
