Like Queen Elizabeth, I may view 2019 as having been a little bumpy, but I look forward to 2020 with resolutions galore and a loving family that continue to make me one of the most hugged people in Canada and two irritating dogs that make me one of the most licked.
I wish all of my friends a Happy New Year in which I hope you experience much love, both given and received .
This post from two years ago still seems appropriate today. We have just finished morning gift opening. Each year there are less presents and significantly less waste (wrapping paper, package containers, etc) than the previous year. The joy is in seeing the four kids buy better and more thoughtful gifts for each other and in some cases use their own Christmas gift money to pay for gifts for their siblings. With three of them going to Christmas Eve church service last night , I think that they are all learning the many meanings of Christmas.
Merry Christmas to all.
