Happy Christmas

Good afternoon. I wrote this post last night and decided to post it before I left. I am leaving for my parents' house this afternoon, so I wanted to just say a couple of things to you - my friends.

If I have left anyone out, I do apologize, as these are the people I stop by the most. There may be some who have no idea I even stop by, so enjoy.

To my blogging friends - I wish all of you a Happy Christmas. May you be blessed with good health and happiness. I cherish all of you.

Andrew - my longest and most cherished blogging friend. I wish you the best life has to offer.

Leann - a wonderful woman who has so much to offer the world.

Phelan - girl! You are one of a kind and someone I am so glad to have personally met.

Andfre - I love where you live and what beautiful pictures you take. I come to you when I need to "get away".

M - cool music, cool blog, cool style. That's you - cool.

Austere - always has a way with words. It's like reading a song.

Bonnie - talented beyond belief. You are so very pretty and I love your zest for life.

Rich - total father of the year. You Rock!

Corky - new daddy! We share a love for the Shat. We will always have a bond in life because of it.

Crusty - what a wonderful woman, wife, mother, and friend.

Jamie - I look up to you. You are such a strong and beautiful person.

Stacy - you are not far from home and I am so glad I found you. Hope we can meet one day.

Portia - love the pictures, the stories, and your way of looking at things different than others.

Professor - Dear furry face. How the time goes by. You have been a joy to get to know.

Hyde - my NYC girl! Stay strong. You are an amazing girl!

Emily - Oh, how I just love you and Trent. Kiss your mom for me.

Dave - you are not only a teacher, but a wonderful father.

Ja - I love your blog. You have quickly become one of my new favorites.

Karin - funny. You definitely know how to make me laugh.

Cheryl - Another long time blogging friend. Seems almost like yesterday I started visiting your blog. I know I have told you before, but you are a very special person.

Loving Trevor - I wish I could get a hold of you to see how you are. I miss the updates on your little girl.

Eone - my friend across the world. You speak through wonderful pictures and words. True friend.

MaryKay - great mom. I am so happy to have found you also.

Sue - Ty and Tamaya's mommy! The kids are wonderful and you are such a great mom!

Meloncutter - we share so much. I am glad you are one of the good guys. Thank You!

Sally - hometown girl! Even though we live in the same hometown, we haven't met yet. I am sure one day that will change.

Kyrie - this girl is so intelligent. Reading your blog makes me want to go back to college again. You are so smart and I know you will go places.

Vital - haven't been able to get a hold of you either, but I check in every day.

NYC Watchdog - it's been a very tough year. You've been through more than any one should have to. Thank you for making my Wednesdays a brighter one.

Parlancheq - Funny, funny, funny. You can always see the lighter side of things.

Jenni - you don't know it, but I stop by and read all of the time. I have yet to post a comment. I will one day.

Jade - haven't left a comment on your blog either. In fact, we lost contact after awhile. Hope you post something soon. I'm still here.

Annabel - I am so glad we were able to meet. You have a wonderful personality, so easy to talk to. You are such an incredible woman and mom, and so devoted. You have become a good blogging friend, and one outside of the blogging world as well.

Chad - new dad! You are going to be a great father.

David Kim - my Korean friend from Cali. I plan to visit Cali next year, hopefully with my mom. I hope to meet you then. You live life to the fullest... and I love the spoilers.

The Diva - YOU GO GIRL!

Proxima - I find you fascinating. We have so many interesting things that have happened to us in our lives that most would find odd. I'm glad to know there is some one else out there like that.

Terri - great mom, active in your children's lives. Your family is so lucky to have you.

Becky - she has found love in her life. I knew you would. A person like you doesn't stay single for long. You are truly amazing.

Well, that's all. You are all my blogging family. I am sure I have left out a few, and if I did, I am so sorry. It was not intentional.

So with that...


Talk to you all when I return!

This post took A LOT of work. I know. I've done them before and you are so appreciated friend. Remember last year when you called the authorities thinking something bad had happened to me. Glad I am not in the hospital this Christmas! Merry Christmas to you and your family. You are a special, bubbly, and warm soul. Someone to be cherished this time of the year.

Hey Sweetie, I got your card today! What a gem to have you in my life.

I just put the boys to bed and put out the Santa stuff. That way I can catch 2 extra zz's in the morning!!

Hope your visit with your family is warm and wonderful and filled to the brim of love and good memories. You deserve nothing less.

Peace to you and all you love.

KYRIE said...

Merry Christmas!!! Thank you for this post and such a lovely comment. I am glad you found my blog because everyone needs a friend like you. You are unique and one of a kind!
Your comments have been really inspiring and motivating to me during my dark days and I appreciate them. Thank you for your friendship!!

simonsays said...

I hope you have a beautiful Christmas, hon. You are a strong, independant woman, and honestly, many, many times, I have thought, - "when I grow up, I want to be just like her"...thank you for the wonderful comments. I think you are pretty terrific, just in case I have neglected to say so.

See you when you get back from your parents place...

I hope Sants fills every wish you have. :)

Meloncutter said...

Just a note to wish you a Great holiday. I hope Christmas brings you all you can desire and all of your Christmas wishes come true.

I thank you for being a sounding board and for sometimes keeping me sane at work. I threaten my bosses with you alot. LOL

Merry Christmas.

Sally said...

Wow! I love this post! I'm looking forward to that in person meeting someday...sounds like it could have happened on accident at the store on Saturday, if it wouldn't have been snowing so stinkin' hard!

Have a wonderful Christmas with your family!

Dave said...

Phelan said...

I am glad to have met you as well. With winter, things slow down here, we should really try and get together again.

Portia said...

What a touching tribute to all your fellow bloggers! A true gift, thank you. You are one of a kind yourself, and I am very glad we have met.

Me said...

Wow, you put so much thought into that post. How you can remember everyone is amazing. Here's to a Happy and prosperous New Year to you, your family and all your friends.

Here's to getting to know everyone better in the upcoming year.

I just caught up on your other posts from last week. What a lot of snow you have for being "down south" and all!!! (well, down south from my perspective ;-) )

Hope you're all shoveled/plowed out by now and that your christmas was all you hoped.

David Kim said...

That's so nice of you to write this to your blogging friends. And, boy, do you have a lot of friends! I guess the amount of friends you have shows how fantastic of a person you are. I wish I had that many friends.

Next time you're in California, my wife and I will try to show you and your mom around town. That should be fun.

Terri said...

Thank you Abbagirl; your a sweetie!
