Christmas Blessings To All My Sweeties

Hello, Dear Ones! It's almost that most special day! I want to wish you all the most wonderful blessed Christmas ever! I have so enjoyed visiting with you all this past year - my old friends and my new friends. You are all a very dear part of my life now and I treasure you.

I have a little announcement to make - Mr. Precious has decided to retire! Oh, I'm not supposed to say 'retire' but that 'he's started another chapter in his life'! So we have some new days ahead and we both are very excited about this! So I am taking a long break from blogging until about the middle of January. I'll probably be popping in on you to see how you're doing every now and then.

Again, Merry Christmas and thank you for making my life richer, fuller and sweeter.

You are my forever sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I must leave you with this little Note Song ~ which always makes me cry

  29. J officially retired 2 years ago,January 2.

    He used vacation time, about 6 weeks, up to the official date. It's been a wonderful 2 years despite a couple little health issue bumps in the road! But we overcame those little bumps and enjoyed life along the way!

    I have to say, you are in for a most wonderful time, during this next part of your life journey. It really is an amazing time, these "golden years"!

    I'll miss you!
    Merry Christmas to you and your family! And all the best in 2010!
