I won't get a chance to get on later tonight because of our family dinner but I just wanted to wish each and every one of you a lovely holiday!

 

It has been so nice to get to know you over the years and chat and exchange ideas. Even though many times we don't see eye to eye and even argue, I just want you to know that I have enjoyed it here more than I can say. You have kept me company during some of my worst health crisises and even if we argued, that kept my mind off of it for a while and didn't let me feel sorry for myself! 

 

I have learned so much here from all of you and changed my mind many times on subjects I never thought I would. 

 

Please, everyone enjoy this holiday and who ever you spend it with. Merry Christmas!!

Hi, @Irshgrl31201! Thanks for this thread and for sharing such wonderful sentiments.  It's been such a joy and pleasure to post with you over the years, and I hope we get the chance to continue for a long time to come!Heart

 

I want to add part of what I posted elsewhere, on our dear @ShowMe's thread, because it applies to everyone here.

We find ourselves at Christmas Eve 2015.  Surely, a season that can't go unnoticed no matter who we are, what celebrations we observe, or how we feel about the holidays.  And with it comes the close of another year and our thoughts inevitably go to all that's happened in the last 12 months.

There have been events which brought us joy, excitement, and satisfaction... and those which caused sadness, worry, and maybe even regret.  Heartwarming and heartbreaking, life steps in and reminds us we are human.  

 

It also reminds us we are much more alike than different.  We do have much more in common than "in difference."

I want to offer my gratitude to all of you for your good wishes when things were difficult, for your understanding when I was a jerk, your forgiveness when we hit rough patches in our posting friendships, and your love which was present no matter what the circumstances.  Thank you.

 

You've all been gracious and unselfish in unflinchingly sharing life-changing joys and challenges, and in doing so you allowed us access to your heart...  and all of you have enriched us and taught us so much about courage and also joie de vivre, exultation of spirit.

 

To everyone who reads and posts here:

With the first light of sun - Bless you.
When the long day is done - Bless you.
In your smiles and your tears - Bless you.
Through each day of your years - Bless you.

I think all of you are true gems, with flashes of brilliance and endearing human flaws, and I want to wish you an abundance of peace, love and laughter throughout the coming year.
