I only dropped in for a minute to wish each and every one of you a very Merry Christmas, and I hope that your entire holiday season is both blessed and memorable. I’ve really enjoyed getting to know so many of you this year. I truly believe I can now count many of you as true friends. Thanks for listening, thanks for laughing, thanks for being there. You all made my year more special than I could ever have imagined — thank you.

Oh, and if you guys are looking for some incredible Christmas blog-cheer, I have just the place for you. Neil at Citizen of the Month has compiled a holiday concert that is simply awe-inspiring. As an added treat, we get to hear our beloved Tiff the way we’ve never heard her before. Go. Enjoy. Smile.

Above all, be happy. The world is still a beautiful place.
