From My Family To Yours

It is now half-way through Channukah, and one day before Christmas Eve, and as we end 2011 I just wanted to take a moment to wish everyone a very joyous holiday season, and a happy and healthy new year.

This year was special in many ways, and I met a lot of new folks online. Some of you have become good friends, and I treasure your friendship as I do the friends I have known for a while, both online and in real life.

One of the most special things about this year was the wedding of my daughter during the summer. While the wedding and the time surrounding it was wonderful, it makes me so glad to see how happy she and her new husband are together.

And of course, it has been a lot of fun watching my grandsons growing up. No longer babies, they are now little boys - in the terrible twos!

So to all of my friends (regardless of if I have met you in real life or not - and I hope to meet more of you in the new year) and family, Sandy and I wish you all a Happy Holiday and a New Year to look forward to for all that you wish for yourself.

(Look for Thoughts From The Dark Side to return in the new year with renewed energy.)
