It is the day before Christmas, here, in The Middle. The beauty of difference is that we can all celebrate, or not celebrate, our holidays as we please.
Our family celebrates Christmas. The true meaning of celebrating the birth of Christ is a big deal to us. Also, I was raised in Christmas. Christ may not have been the center, he appeared here and there in songs and cards and such, but the Spirit of Christmas was there.
To me, the Spirit of Christmas is Hope, Love and Giving. You can feel it in the air in our country. There are sad times for so many but songs of Hope are everywhere and this is when you hear stories of loving, giving people. I long to have a day when most of our news stations report, at least equally, on good stories of love and hope and giving. They could do it. It would be a challenge to them, but the stories are out there.
Here, on wordpress.com, there stories of all kinds. People share their hearts and talents and minds. I want to thank my WordPress followers and readers for making my writing more enjoyable.

All this to say Thank you, dear Friends! You are encouraging and yes, we are all on this writing journey together!
I pray for you all to find your dreams and live them this season and the coming years. I pray your writing journey to be fulfilling, not just to you, but to many.
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and a Wonderful New Year to you all.
