Happy or Not, Here We Are!

Okay... so... here we are.

Some are thrilled that this week has finally arrived...
...some can't wait for it to be over.
Some have been enjoying the sights, sounds and wonders of the season...
...some have just been gritting their teeth and muddling through, best they can.
Some have been waiting all year for this...
...some already dread there being another, next year.
Some want to sing it from the rooftops...
...some wouldn't mind knocking them off.
Some are looking to the new year as a wonderful way to begin again and look to a brighter tomorrow...
...some are just feeling the phrase:

"Next verse, same as the first, a little bit louder, and a little bit worse!'

        And this is what I, personally, have to say about the whole lot of it.

Revisiting That Special Request

        My friends, I have to admit, the response to that last, blog post was absolutely phenomenal, and unexpected!  I had no idea so many people would respond in such powerful, positive and understanding ways, publicly and privately!

        When I discussed the post with the friend who originally inspired it, they had some comments which, when combined with some I received from others, made me realize a follow-up post needed to be made.  This made deciding on a post topic for this week rather simple, even if the composing of the post has not been so easy!  Once again, I hope I do justice to those whose lives and hearts were touched by the things covered in that last post.
