As I look back at 2012, I have to say thank you to my readers for the support they have shown me. Their encouragement gave me the confidence to publish in the first place, so thank you for continuing to support my writing! I’m also grateful to the author friends I’ve made. I’ve learned, and continue to learn, so much from all of you. Have a blessed and joyous Christmas!
Peace and Love,
Every year my family and I send out letters that detail those very things that went wrong during the year. (Don’t you just hate those holiday letters where everyone and everything are perfect?!? — please see www.allredgreetings.blogspot.com and you will feel much better about yourself!) Ahh. But the truth is, we are blessed. Every time I open the newspaper, we are reminded of this. As we head into the new year, it is my fondest wish that dreams come true but even better … you discover what your dream is and GO FOR IT!
I hope that you all end this year on a safe, healthy, happy note and ring in the new year with great ambition! Thank you to everyone for your support, love and laughter.

Holidays can mean different thing to all of us. Recent events have taught us how precious our time is on this planet. Never take for granted a single day to tell those people closest to you how much you love and care about them. I was estranged from my mother for years, due to stubbornness on both of our parts. I was lucky. One nondescript Sunday morning, something told me to put aside whatever had come between us, and go visit her. We spent just an hour together, and I’ll admit it was tense and we didn’t really speak. I gave her an awkward hug and told her I loved her before I left her house that chilly September morning. I got the call around 5pm, that night, that she had passed away sometime in the afternoon. We spend so much of our holidays rushing around looking for gifts, and attending mundane parties, that we lose sight of how important the holidays are supposed to be. Take time to hug a loved one, sing Christmas Carols, read ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas, or The Christmas Story, reflect on the past year, exchange gifts, but do it with the ones you love and mean the most to you. We only get one turn on this merry-go-round, so cherish the ride. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to every one of our family, friends, and fans.

Happy Holidays! Thanks for making 2012 the year I decided to push the envelope. I couldn’t have done it without my Village.
May this year pass us by with a smile on our faces and heads held high. May the New Year bring you joy, happiness, and a world full of adventure. May you keep your loved ones close, and your enemies in your prayers. Now is a time to be joyful and full of love. Let’s show the world that we too can stand up and say with a full heart, may He be present in our lives now…tomorrow…and forever.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

As 2012 ends and we reflect on the year that has gone just before, I think with joy on my blessings and hope such joy pervades your holiday season, too. From me and mine to you and yours, sincere wishes for the very best in 2013 and always. Remember that you are of great worth and are the center of someone’s world.
