A very special Christmas greeting to the entire Writing.Com gang...
One of the songs that have been performed by Jim Croce was one that was called "It Doesn't Have To Be That Way"; it is about a man who feels somehow guilty after breaking up with someone, and that he should not have done so. The lyrics go like this: "But it doesn't have to be that way; what we have should never have ended... When it comes to facing something so serious as the pandemic in which we are in right now, I think Jim Croce's lyrics would be changed to something like this: "What we are facing should never have happened..." and yet, here we are...
But despite this, I have tried as best as I ever could to entertain you with the best kind of pieces that I have ever presented in this great writing community, as well as trying to keep my mind off such things that have been happening myself. I am so very glad that all of you have taken the time to read my writings throughout this year; indeed, my writing pieces have been truly a gift to each and every reader who reads them. Well, we've had better years than this, but never in a hundred years do we ever have to deal with a year that's as incredibly challenging as this one.
However, we have made to most of this year as very, very best as we can, and I myself am so very grateful for all of you Writing.Com people who have once again show me how to use my creativity well. I hope and pray that sometime in the coming year that things would get a whole lot better than what we are facing right here and now.
I would very much like to thank the men and women in the entire Writing.Com family for giving me another year of creativity; you guys have shown me a lot, and I hope to look forward to another year of making you laugh, while I hope to continue this in the years to come. And I would very much like to thank all of you, too many to mention, who have taken the time to read my wonderful stories and other fun stuff such as word search puzzles, and by saying how much you have enjoyed them. It makes my heart happy to think about how much you have enjoyed what I write and publish every now and then.
And so with that, to the entire Writing.Com staff, I would very much like to wish each and every one of you a very merry and blessed Christmas, and much joy and happiness in the New Year beyond. Merry Christmas, with love-JW
