Happy Holidays

Post image for Happy Holidays

The holidays are family time.  Holidays in many parts of the world means vacation.  In my former (CFO) career, the end of year was the busiest.  When I worked in the electronics/computer industry, the week between Christmas and New Years was a company shutdown.  In other words, we had paid time off, except I generally worked some days to prepare for year end.  As a teacher, this is vacation time!

Many people take this time of year to take vacation to be home with their children.  School age children are off for the holidays.  I am fortunate that my daughter’s birthday is during this time of year because we all get together.  Birthday parties are a good excuse to see friends and family, but I really don’t need the excuse.  Whether you are a child or an adult, we celebrate the season together.  There are holiday parties and invites to friend’s homes, it just doesn’t get better than this.  As I get older, I realize that time goes by very quickly and I value these times even more.

I want to wish everyone, family, friends, colleagues and fellow bloggers during this special time of the year to appreciate these relationships because time goes by quickly.  We recently added one new member to our family about a week ago.  Our long term companion (dog, Ranger) had to be put to sleep a couple months ago.  We adopted a new dog (Lucy) who is a wonderful addition to the family.  Families include pets and she is a nice addition.

Thank you for being part of my world!  I want you to know that I appreciate you stopping by or just knowing you.  There is no better time to connect with friends and family during the holidays.  Wishing you all the joys of the holiday season!  Happy Holidays and Happy New Year.

I hope you enjoyed your Christmas with your family! I find it usually is the best time because most people are on vacation.

Thanks, I hope you enjoyed Christmas too. I agree not much happens between Christmas and New Year’s. Asa teacher, it is a nice perk to be off this time of year.

I hope you had a great Christmas. I’m sorry about the loss of Ranger. You can never replace them, but I’m sure Lucy has already made her own place. We lost our Sadie earlier this year, but then added Mo to our nest. So different in personalities, but I can’t imagine life without them.

Thanks, I hope you enjoyed your Christmas too. In many ways, Lucy is a gift because she attached herself to my wife at the dog rescue place. She is the third dog we adopted over the years, it seems the dog picks us!
