I wish you all could be here with me tonight. We'd have a big mug of cocoa, made with cocoa and milk and sugar, with just a little vanilla. Maybe a cookie -- or two -- or a brownie or a lemon bar. We had brownies topped with red and green M&M's today at work, thanks to my colleague Donna. Yummy!
I'm a lot calmer today. I've got a pile of wrapped gifts at the office and have made a little headway on my cards. Still a long way to go, but I think my friends will understand if they don't get their cards until Monday. I know I will enjoy any that arrive next week.
I know it's not all about cards and gifts and errands. So not about errands. With all the difficulties at work that weigh heavy I'm nonetheless delighted to be here to savor the small pleasures and moments of the heart. I'm wearing my cozy slippers and sharing a cup of cocoa with some wonderful friends. Here's to you dear and precious blog friends, may your days and the year to come hold many moments of sharing and affection, bound by a chain of friendship that goes all around the world.
