Merry Christmas

I can't believe how quickly the Christmas season has come upon us. That old adage, time flies, is surely true. It seems to go faster every year. This season is a time for peace and goodwill, sharing, joy, and reflection. As I reflect upon this year that's about to pass, I recall much upheaval and change in my occupation, an exciting election year, the worst economy I can recall, changes for my children from middle school to high school, and a diagnosis that came with many tests and at times distress. While many things have changed, much has stayed the same. Love of family and friends and faith during hard times. In the days ahead, I'll be spending time with my family, contemplating changes for the upcoming year, and shopping with my very best girlfriend on our annual day after Christmas shopping extravaganza. I wish for you all a blessed holiday.

And the same to you of course. Can you believe it - I get two whole days off at Christmas? Yay.

Don't complain, Art...my son only gets Christmas Day off, and he's driving over here tonight and back home tomorrow night. Doc gets the two days off, too, although he does have the weekend off, but that dadgum beeper will be attached to him all four days.

I wish for you and your family a very peaceful and blessed Christmas and upcoming New Year. May it be an enjoyable, happy and healthy year for you all.

(Cryptic statements in your post…I pray that all is well with you.)
