    I'm sure there will be some kind of catch-all thread for this, but I want to express my wishes for safe, happy and meaningful holidays and 2010 for everyone. The past 16 months have been the roughest of my life, and the most rewarding. Some of you know why, and some don't, but the details aren't as important as the place where it brings me: here and now, hopeful for you and yours of good things to come.

    Thank you to everyone who gave their support in their individual way. It meant more than I am capable of expressing.

    Have fun, be with someone you love, and if you don't think that's possible, find someone who looks like he or she might need a friend, and search-and-replace lonely with the warmth of friendship. Be thankful for all that you have. As little as it might seem, it leaves a huge void when it's gone.

    Here's to the good things that fill the voids when they're created, and to the people who fill in the missing pieces for us. Happy holidays, SJ.

    To All My Politically Correct Friends:

    Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit, my best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low-stress, non-addictive, gender-neutral celebration of the winter solstice holiday, practiced within the most enjoyable traditions of the religious persuasion of your choice, or secular practices of your choice, with respect for the religious/secular persuasion and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all. I also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2010, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make America great.

    Not to imply that America is necessarily greater than any other country nor the only America in the Western Hemisphere. Also, this wish is made without regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability, religious faith or sexual orientation of the wishee.

    To Everyone Else:

    Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

    Don't you have work to go do? (which is the best present you'll get this year....)

    JD, thanks for starting this thread.
    I actually have been wondering about you since, for some reason, it popped into my brain that you haven't been posting much and your posts are missed.
    Thanks for the sentiments.
    Everyone, enjoy the season.

    Happy holidays and happy New Year to all.

    I can't wait for January. 2009 can kiss my ass as the worst year of my life. :)

    Ditto here. Fortunately my year took a huge turn for the better in mid-November, but until then, yeesh. Still thrilled to put 2009 in the rearview mirror.

    Can't think of a much better poster - or person - to start this thread. Kudos on persevering, J_D.

    Looking forward to better days here, too.
