Happy Holidays and Many Thanks!!!

Dear Friends …

I just want to take a moment on this busy Christmas weekend to thank each and every one of you for the tremendous support, all the hugs and love, and for sticking by me this past year.  I hope that you and yours have a most wonderful holiday with much love, family and joy!

I am quite behind on visiting your blogs and answering comments, and for this I apologize, but there is simply too much to cram into 24 hours these days.  I promise to catch up next week, though!

You have all become as family, and I want you to know how much I appreciate it.  If I could, I would give you each a big hug, but please know that I am sending you one from my heart.  Love ‘n hugs to you all!

Happy Holiday!!!   animated tree

  1. Merry Holiday Season to you and all your loved ones and all your readers today, Jill. Now down to business. I wrote what I hope will be a hesrt-wrenching piece of fictlon for Xmas day. I know few of your followers read my blog, it is usually highly specialized, but today it is meant for everyone, and I hope some of you will check it out. The title is A WORK OF FICTION, and it is indeed a work of fiction. But I hope it is something to make people think and feel. That’s what xmas should be about, thinking and feeling…

        I hope this will at least get you to my blog site, if not directly to the “WORK OF FICTION” page.
        (May I make one request of you, please, Jill? “rawgod” is spelled all lower case, and never begins with a capital. The reason is that rawgod is not a name such as Jerry, but a designation for the eternal spirit within me. This spirit can have no ego, as it exists outside of the physical world of “samsara.” For me, names are a product of the physical world, and represent the ego-consciousness, and therefore need to be made special. The spirit, on the other hand, has no need to appear special.) I do apologize for the “lecture” but there is no easy way to make such a request, most people do not see a difference between ego and spirit, but this is a difference that is very meaningful to me.

        • This is the strangest thing, but when I click the link, it takes me to my own blog! So, I copied the link and pasted it into the browser, and it still took me to my own blog! I do not understand this … do you? I will try from a different browser a bit later … puzzling!

          Sorry about the Caps … I will try to remember.


          • Caps are a non-issue. But not having you get to my blog are. If you are having trouble, are others? Can you try putting ” therealrawgod ” in the WordPress search engine? Maybe that will get you there. Please keep me advised. Jerry

            • I did, and that worked! Apparently I was not following you, though I could have sworn I was. I fixed that! I am able to get to your site that way (will read the post in a rew, as soon as I finish catching up on comments), but the link still fails. That may well be a problem if you are hoping to pick up some new readers.


              • Just to let you know, I checked my site, and I am suddenly not following your site either. That is not right. Someone is playing fast and free with our blog sites. Anyone out there know what might be going on?


                  • Shall we be paranoid together, Jill. Originally you can get to my blog, then you can’t, then you can, then you can’t again. Since I am answering this comment, I am still connected to your blog, but I am using the comments bell at the top right hand corner of my site to get there. (Have you tried that method to get to my blog?) But yesterday I wasn’t following your blog anymore, so I hit the follow button, and when I turned on my computer this morning, I wasn’t following you again. So I hit the follow button again. I’ll have to wait to see if that changes yet again. I do not like what is, going on, but maybe we have hit a nerve somewhere, and someone IS NOTICING US. That would mean we are doing something right (well, right for the left) , wouldn’t you agree?


  2. Happy holidays from Malaysia Jill. I am at the airport waiting for a flight to Bangkok. Not an overly Christmassy thing to be doing on the 25th, but hope you will be having a much more comfortable time and eating and imbibing festive stuff with your family.

  3. Well, I’m jealous of your daughter for a start. I suppose you’re swanning off on vacation somewhere for a week now while we sit here shivering and waiting for your return. I hope you at least laid on some hot soup for tomorrow.

    • My daughter is a sweetheart, is she not? And as you well know, my friend, the only place I’m swanning off to is the pile of laundry that has accumulated exponentially in the past few days! No hot soup for tomorrow … leftover turkey!!!

  4. Merry Christmas!!! Here in Austria – where I am at the moment – presents have been opened, dinner eaten, the boys are in bed. It was a beautiful sunny day with snow caped mountains (and green gardens). Now it is dark and very quiet. I am thankful for my family, my friends, my life. For a short time, it is only us, floating in our bubble. We will collide with reality shorty, I am sure. But not tonight.

    • Thank you, Keith and I feel the same … you and many others have become as family to me, and I am ever thankful for you guys. Fortunately, the farthest I traveled was next door! If you are traveling, keep safe and have a wonderful time!


  5. A very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family. Hope it is a good one. 2017 was not a very nice year for me, dealing with many medical issues. Hopefully by the time I am done with all my treatments mid-year 2018 will be a better year. Take care and God Bless. Love you.

    • My dear friend … I was not aware of your health issues … but will be in touch in the next day or two. Thank you for the well-wishes, and Merry Christmas (a day late now) and Happy New Year to you and Barney! Take care and I do hope for you to have a better 2018. Hugs and much love.
