for those of you that might have gotten a PM from mrs.claus - that was me! and for those that got a reply to any posts, it was me just trying to relay a message that i wanted to convey without revealing my identity since i was a secret santa that couldn't get a gift delivered to my twins developing mono, quickly followed by my dear husband. anyways, i missed the hoopla and the posts that i am guessing were not nice due to the fact that they didn't realize it was me trying to give a message. i understand why it happened. there are soooooo many weirdos on the net always stirring trouble! no offense taken and i wish everyone here all the best, truly. this has been an incredible gift to me this year - having this community in my life. my literary experience has been enriched by being introduced to many new books and authors. and my "internet life" has never been filled with more intellectual, stimulating, fun, and sweet people from so many walks of life and from all over the world without being blasted for having different points of view! the chats online and through skype have been a blast! i hope to be posting a new family photo soon. we took some good ones today! God bless each of you and Merry CHristmas!
