Christmas Greetings, Roasts and Book Winner

Four things to discuss on this post:

First: I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

I have learnt a lesson this year - the most important facet in our lives is our health so above everything I wish you all good health. Second is happiness and may you have that as well.

If good wealth and fortune come your way, well that is a bonus.

Second: I am pleased to announce the winner of Breeze's book of poems, officially entitled:

Wind Rhymes: Poetry from The Breeze
Carolyn R. Parsons

The winner is . . . . . . Janine of Sniffles and Smiles.

Many congratulations, Janine. Carolyn will be contacting you soon.

Third: It is very quiet in BlogLand around Christmas so if anyone has not seen Meredith's Roast they missed a real treat. To see it please press HERE.

For the same reason not many saw my sister, Maggie May's roast, posted last Christmas. To see this one please press HERE . I have arranged with David that it is still possible to add comments to all his roasts.

Fourth: Maggie has had her first Chemo treatment yesterday (Tuesday) and she has posted about it HERE . God Bless you Maggie and thank you all for your good wishes for her.

    Thank you for the lovely comments coming my way and for all your kindnesses everyone. We take health for granted until it is in jeopardy and I was really upset to see you in such pain last night because of your hip.

    Hope you all have a good Christmas in spite of the health troubles in your household.
    God Bless.
