A few weeks ago I listened to a Christmas devotional in which it was relayed that you would have a more meaningful Christmas if you would spend time doing things with others. Those things could be activities with your family, a church get together, neighborhood parties, office celebrations, service groups, etc.
I know that by participating in this Merriment chain with my fellow blogging friends, that it has added greatly to the Christmas Spirit I have felt. It has brought me closer to the ladies I have visited with each day for 24 straight days. It has allowed me to share things that I may have not otherwise.
I have been able to join with mother's in their excitement of children coming home for the holidays and in the frustrations of having Christmas lights stuck in the mailbox. I have wept with those who posted about the tragedy in Connecticut and laughed about ladies dining rooms being taken over by greenery. I have cheered along with those who are just beginning their prim journey and have drooled over the perfect homes of those who know what they are doing:) I have smelled the wonderful scents of pine and cinnamon and tasted yummy chocolate cherry cookies. I have had bad dreams of spooky vintage elves and glorious ones of friends meeting together for parties. I have learned alot about my friends and they have learned some more about me.
So, to all of you who joined in the Merriment Chain and to many of you who stuck with me for 24 straight days (Christine you know who you are)
I just want to say thank you. Thank you for making this the Merriest blogging season ever:)
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
