On this day of preparation, for guests and for meals and for gift-openings and parties and so much travel, there's a nip of excitement in the air---the little ones who are old enough to understand and anticipate have that bubble of joy in their tummies, and can hardly stand still and wait for tomorrow.

It's been such a lovely year meeting all of you, and you've added immeasurably to the joy in my own life. And so, I wish you the Joy of the Season, the Joy of the Festivities, the Joy of the Birth and the Celebration and the Homecomings.

Thank you all---so very much---for dropping in and for commenting and for being such a part of the anticipation of each morning, of finding a new message from a friend, of being part of your day as you've become such a special part of mine. It's like opening a beautifully-wrapped gift each and every day, as I sign in and see the names and places---so very special and such an honor to have you here.

I wish you all the most wonderful of Christmases, and sweet dreams on this most Magical of Nights, with the bright promise of Tomorrow and all its meanings.
