I have been posting here since last April, when I finally decided in a limited way, to openly acknowledge who I am. In the convening months, I have made many friends, shared many of my secrets with you, and laughed and wept as you shared yours with me. Coming to Blogger and getting know all of you, has been one of the most positive experiences of my life, and as Christmas approaches just a few hours away, I am so thankful for getting to know all of you!
In an hour and half, I am going to watch Midnight Mass from St. Peter's Basilica in Rome. Not because I am a Roman Catholic. I am not. And not even because I am religious, because I am nothing of the kind. I watch it because, it just kind of sets the mood for me on Christmas Eve. Although not a practicing Christian, I am a lover of Jesus and his message of peace to mankind. I gladly celebrate his birthday each year!
As the hour approaches, let me take this opportunity to express my sincere gratitude to all of you, for the wonderful support you have given me over the past nine months, and for all of the wonderful, and not so wonderful experiences you have shared with me! All of you have touched my heart in one way or another, and you have all meant so much to me! Please accept my sincere wishes for a peaceful and joyous Christmas for each and every one of you, and for all of those you love!
A warm virtual hug, and loads of kisses to all of you!
