Christmas break is always a nice, well, break. Especially being in college now, any break is the figurative manna from heaven. And breaks between semesters are the best, because they mean that there’s no possible way I could have homework that’s due when I get back. Thanksgiving falls into that category of intra-semester breaks, as it was filled with paper-writing this year. But Christmas! Oh, Christmas. A wonderful thing. A time to breathe and step back from the crazed pace of modern life.
My impetus for writing today is because this week two of my friends have started blogs, and another has returned from a long hiatus. They got me thinking about all the people that have helped me in my life. While I won’t go into detail about each of them here (this isn’t really the right setting for that), I do want to say thank you to all of you.
Thank you to those of you who have been there to listen to me, to give me your advice, to comfort me when I was down and be happy with me when things were going well. Thank you for making my life so wonderful. I really couldn’t have done it without all of you. And you know who you are. Thanks, guys!
Of course, I can’t write a post on the day after Christmas without wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! May the Lord bless you in all you do, and may you have success and happiness in the coming year. I’m looking forward to the adventure.
