Wow, it is December already;  doesn't it always seem to creep up on us? How does that always happen???  It is such a busy time of year and Newcomer activities slow down a bit but will pick back up in earnest come January. The coming weeks will be filled with increased social occasions, visits with family and friends, holiday decorating, shopping, increased time in the kitchen and way too many tempting goodies to eat....way, way too many. Treasured decorations come out of storage once a year and priceless traditions fill our hearts and homes with wonderful memories of holidays of our past.

Slowly new memories with our new friends and loved ones begin to warm our new houses and create a home. Being a fairly new resident of Tampa, like many of you, I have found that the holiday decorations I have gathered over the years, our family recipes and traditions have brought me a great deal of comfort in our new house and have started to create a home. However, I am also reminded of the 50+ years of holidays spent with extended family and friends in cold, snowy CT. I will admit that as each year passes we are adjusting to the warm, sunny holidays of Florida but there will always be a part of me that longs for the way things used to be. If I could have just one wish I would wish for a cold, snowy Christmas Day for all of my northern Newcomer friends. Just one day is all I am asking for........or a few flurries......or maybe just a chill in the air........Santa, can you work with me, please????

I wish you and your loved ones the blessings of the Holiday Season and a very Happy New Year.

a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring,
all of which have the potential
to turn a life around."
