The Singer household had a great Christmas this year. It was very relaxed and things went to plan with the snow and ice melting (nearly) we did a couple of good walks in the park and then snuggled up at home.
We opened many, many presents throughout the day. We all had a stocking and then main presents. They were all wonderful. No returns to be made at all! My favourite present? – an Oxfam gift of feeding a family in Africa for a week. It made me think about how lucky I am to have my family and my friends.
Friends have been on my mind more since Boxing Day when I turned the computer and found that dear Edie had lost her new home in a fire. All her presents are gone as well as all her belongings, but from reading posts from her friends she has said that all that matters is that her family are all okay and that she could not be more grateful for what she has.
Although I have never met Edie (or anyone who has ever left a comment on Perfecting Pru) I count her, and you all as friends. I hope that you, like me, are counting all your presents, even if they weren’t things that you could unwrap on Christmas Day.
I agree I think the best presents are the ones that you can’t unwrap, and those are the ones that usually last the longest too. I am glad you had a wonderful Christmas and yours looked perfect Pru! 😀 It’s so nice to be counted as one of your friends! Looking forward to a happy new year too!
So many gifts of new friendships this year. I do count those as the most valuable and wonderful gifts of all! Blogging, Twitter, Facebook and other social media outlets offer us a chance to get to know each other and develop unique and lasting relationships. I’m so proud, honored, and humbled to be a friend of yours.
Here’s to an inspiring and wonderful 2011!
