Christmas is the most important holiday in my family. We've had some good years and some bad years, but we always try to spend it together, with peace and joy in our hearts. If you're celebrating today, Merry Christmas to you and yours! If you're not, I hope you're having a joyful day regardless.

Above all else, I am grateful for my daughter, my nieces and nephew, and the rest of my huge and loving family. They unflinchingly support me in everything I do and my life would have no meaning without them. I am also eternally grateful for my love, whose presence in my life has been such a blessing from the start. He knows me exactly for who I am and loves me anyway, both when I'm at my best and when I'm at my worst.
Every day, I'm grateful for being able to do what I love, and do it well. I feel that I'm living up to my full potential, and it's a heady, wonderful feeling.
I am, of course, grateful for my two years with you, for each and every one of your visits and comments. We are the best community in the world, and I have no words to express how much you all mean to me and how The Nocturnal Library has shaped my life.
I am also grateful for books, System of a Down and red nail polish. Please don't judge me for this last one, I can be shallow like that sometimes. ;)
I will now quit my rambling and go eat instead.
Again, Merry Christmas to you and to your families.
Here's a song that always makes me cry.
