On this last day of 2013, I am thinking about all of you. Your comments, emails, and visits have meant the world to me. I look back over the past year as if we were all able to have occasional chats on my front porch, just talking and laughing as friends, in between some heart-deep conversations.

You know?

So, thank you. I wish you many blessings in the new year!
