A letter from Christmas

Shhhh.  You’ll have to be quiet.  It’s Christmas morning and I’m the only one up.

It’s funny and fascinating that the first few idle minutes I get, I turn to the blog and all of you.  I haven’t even put the coffee on yet!  The {grow} community really has become a big part of my life.  I woke up today thinking about some of you — the ones I haven’t heard from in some time. Don’t make me worry about you, now! It’s very still and cold here.  The weather forecasters called for a white Christmas, which is a very big deal here in the Southeastern United States. I think it has been more than 20 years since we had snow on December 25. Looking out the window, it;s not so much a White Christmas as a powder sugar dusting on a cupcake Christmas, but hey — it’s the thought that counts.

I’m taking some time off from the business side of things for the next week but have been focusing on writing.  This has been such a joy because I can rarely devote long uninterrupted stretches to anything these days. Really looking forward to pretending to be an author for a few days!

Any way, I am quite excited about this morning. I am going to blow my wife away today with an unexpected gift that fulfills one of her dreams. I have been on pins and needles for weeks waiting to give it to her so today is going to be a very great day.

Well, thanks for indulging me. Just wanted to let you know you were on my mind today … even if I don’t know you yet.  I do very much appreciate the friendship and support you have shown me in so very many ways this year. It’s overwhelming really.

My fondest wishes that you find peace in your heart wherever you are this cold, quiet morning,

Mark
