I hope everyone is having a good holiday season (Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Yule, etc.)! It’s a time for traditions, so I will post my favorite rendition of a Xmas carole, which “O Holy Night” by Willie K:
The other thing I will post is my Christmas story. It seems like the most last minute I have ever been, but Mil assures me that I have been worse in the past. (We even had a $10 bet on it….I hate it when she’s right! 😆)
Anyway, you can find it on the Holiday page. And it goes out with a special nod to Bystander, who requested a story about having someone to hold you accountable when you’ve let life run away from you. It didn’t turn out to be the story I wish I’d written (funny how things always seem better in your imagination), but — in the spirit of the message of the story — I’m going to give myself a pass on not living up to my expectations.
It’s been a tough year (again). Thank you all for your participation, your support, and for just being fellow human beings struggling through this together. It means a lot. 🙏
P.S. To all you who have submitted gifts which I haven’t commented on yet, I apologize. I didn’t want to allow myself to read any stories until after I’d completed writing my own. Now I can reward myself and will be commenting soon! 🙌
And in spite of everything, you still host the exchange, same as ever.
Well, it’s an honor and pleasure to host when we have participants like you to be thankful for, Woodsy! 😃
