    Slouching unto Bethlehem,
    first Christmas, then this fell year’s end,
    I’ve said it once, and will again
    that I consider each a friend,
    ye stalwart folk of agency
    and fellow readers of this blog;
    writing may not hold pageantry,
    and yes, it can be quite a slog,
    but in your wisdom and compassion
    and in your merry comradeship,
    I’ve found joy far past my ration,
    and, dear hearts, it’s worth the trip
    when boon companions take the part
    to warm each others’ writer’s heart.

    We wih y’all the Merriest of Christmases!

    Although I’ve missed the last few posts this month because of the busyness of the season, I will be back reading them as usual. You’ve taught us many things from your posts. We writers never stop learning this craft, do we? 🙂

    Arnie and I wish you, your entire staff, and your families a joyous holiday season and a very blessed one. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

    Good for you! I know those consistent writing commitments can begin feeling like one more task to complete before relaxing is allowed. Taking care of yourself by taking a break sets a good example for the rest of us. Merry Christmas!

    And a blessed Christmas to you, Steve and Thomas, Bob and Tamela. My husband passed December 17th after a four-year-long illness, so Christmas for me will not be the same, but I have a loving family and a God who comforts. Maybe I will be able to get back into my writing now and take more advantage of your posts.

    Blessings of the Season to you and your loved ones. I think the words of Isaiah are especially significant this year: The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness, on them has light shone.”
