But, as we turn our hearts toward family and friends during the Christmas holiday, I wanted to let you to know that I am thankful for blessing of many new friends I’ve come to “know” here in blogland.

May your days be full of holiday blessings; and, may your heart be filled with the warmth of His presence.
