I have three wishes tonight...

That those of you who have lost loved ones and who are spending your first holiday without them, will find comfort in family and friends and in the beautiful memories you have.

That those of you who have not suffered a recent loss will look out for and take care of those you know who are grieving. Invite them to your table. Let them know they can count on you to help them through a holiday season that is anything but joyful for them.

My third wish is for all who come to these blogs to learn, to laugh, to commiserate, to find whatever you are looking for. I wish for you a peaceful and joyful Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa and a blessed and bountiful new year.
