Are you all ready for the holiday season?  I certainly hope so, because it’s here.  I wish you all the warmth, joy, and love that the holiday season can bring – and I wish you none of the stress, financial strain, and loneliness that sometimes lurks in the holiday shadows.  For today, I wish you a restful day with family and friends, lots of food and warm fires, and I wish for you a thankful heart for all that we have and are about to receive.
