Holiday Greetings, Friends!
Just a quick note to let you know Alphabet Soup will be on hiatus for the next several weeks. Thank you, regular readers, for visiting, sharing, commenting, and
eating all my cookies noshing with us this past year, and welcome, all you perky and good-looking new subscribers! This online community has been such a wonderful source of comfort and joy for me each and every day — I appreciate and never take for granted your time, attention and support!
It’s often said that Christmas is for children; it is especially true this year, perhaps the most soul-searching, emotionally wrenching holiday season we’ve ever experienced in our lifetimes. Most of you who follow this blog are connected with kids in some way — not only as parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, but as teachers, librarians, counselors, writers, artists, illustrators, reviewers, booksellers or publicists. While we honor and celebrate the children we are fortunate to have in our lives this holiday, let’s not forget to nurture the innocent, trusting child within, who still believes in goodness, loves freely and openly, is alight with wonder, and never loses hope.
I wish you all that is merry and bright in this season of miracles, and many happy hours in your kitchen, at the table and around the hearth, cherishing loved ones who are present or forever in your heart’s memory. Hope Santa’s good to you — I’ll see you in the New Year!
