A Christmas Wish For You

Sam and Ben-Ben on Christmas morning a few years ago.

I've been on the blogger naughty list these past weeks but I didn't want the holiday season to go by without touching base with you, my dear friend.

I know this year has been a challenging one for you, but through all of it, you have remained solid and strong. Oh sure, you've collapsed on your bed many a time, sobbing your heart out – I mean, haven't we all? But there you stand, regardless, facing yet another Christmas and another whole year, with optimism, excitement, grace and enough cookies to feed a small nation.

My sincere hope is that you find peace in your generous heart, and happiness, and at least a bit of the love you have shown me. Oh, and a big honking present under the Christmas tree.

Merry Christmas, my friend. Merry Christmas.

  3. It is early Christmas morning here. Thank you so much for your wishes. Which I am returning with interest.
    And I have to agree with Alex, how did you get Ben-Ben into his suit? Blood would have been involved here. Mine, and in quantity.

    1. You know what? Ben-Ben is pretty calm, cool and collected about everything. I'd like some of whatever he's having... :)

    1. Nah, unfortunately not. But hopefully we're going home in late winter or early spring - can't wait to see them and hug them senseless! In the meantime, I've sent parcels and, of course, I'll call them Christmas morning to "see what they got!"

  12. No big honking presents, but a few small ones that meant the world to me. OH... and some Christmas snuggle I was not expecting from my godson. (see blog)

    Now Tony... he got a big honking present. Too bad he has to share it with the rest of us.

  13. Ben must have been thinking, "vengeance shall be mine, sayeth the cat, and I shall repay..."
