I hope this Monday brings you lots of smiles.  As I was searching for this week’s Monday Quote I wanted something a little different, and then I came across this quote by Phyllis Diller.  She was a very funny woman, just thinking about her brought a smile to my lips, and so we have this week’s quote.  I hope you all have lots of smiles in your life today and for the whole week.  It costs nothing, but spreads joy wherever it goes.

Happy New Year!

happy new year, New Year, New Year's Eve, 2014, happiness, joy, resolutions, wishes, goals, love, thanks2013 has been an incredible year, lots of ups and downs and ins and outs, but overall it definitely finished on the plus side of things!

I want to thank my readers for all the support that you’ve given me and my books.  All of the wonderful reviews and messages, they mean the world to me.

To my friends, you all have been great, supportive, encouraging and even slave drivers at times–cracking that whip when it needed to be done.

My family is the best, my children – Jackie, Andy and Sarah – I don’t know how I’d get through life without you.  You make me laugh and cry and fill my days with joy.  I’m so proud of the three of you and my two son-in-laws, John and Ian.  We have a truly wonderful family.

Special thanks go out to Shira and Tom.  Without the two of you I’d never have gotten through the low points of this year. I love you both so very much.

I wish you all a very happy, healthy and prosperous New Year. May it be filled with all the joy and love you can imagine.  I’m looking forward to all the new adventures coming our way and I can’t wait to share them all with you.   Goodbye 2013 and Welcome 2014 – it’s going to be a blast! ♥ ♥ ♥

Merry Christmas

christmas tree, topper, elf hat, merry christmas, happy holidays, seasons greatings, sparkles, lights, merry, christmas, joy, happiness, love, lynne st. jamesIt’s finally here–Christmas!  All the preparations, shopping, cleaning, and traveling are hopefully done, and y’all have some time to relax before the presents are opened and food is eaten…and naps are taken. Oh yeah, lots of naps!

christmas, 2013, christmas tree, sparkling, lights, season, merry christmas, lynne st. jamesAs I look back on this year there were lots of highs and lows, for a while the lows were winning, but towards the end of the year the highs took over and I have so much to be thankful for.  Gazing at my twinkling tree and looking at the presents stacked underneath sent from my children it is easy to get a little teary eyed about not being with them.  I miss seeing the joy on their faces on Christmas morning.  But all children grow up and mine are leading wonderful happy lives – how could I ask for more?

I know this is a hard time of year for so many, so I’m wishing for you all to have a  day filled with happiness and love – whether with family or friends, remember none of us are really alone!  Merry Christmas! ♥ ♥ ♥
