December Blessings

I seem to have taken quite the December hiatus from blogging.  I really didn't mean to.  I did have many random thoughts during the month of December, and most of them dealt with tender mercies and other blessings of the season.  Some days I would begin the draft for a post, or at least a title, but I just never got around to actually writing the posts.  December is always a very busy month, there were plenty of other things to do, lots of time with family, it was my vacation, for goodness sake, and I mostly just didn't feel like writing.  Hopefully that doesn't hurt any of my dear readers' tender feelings.  :)

Anywho, I do have a very huge list of blessings that came my way during December of 2013.  I may elaborate on some of these as I do have many thoughts on these topics, but then I may someday soon just hit the "publish" button and leave the list as is.  And then it will be done.  Or not, if I decide to come back and edit or add to in the future.  So, without further ado or adu  (now how do you spell that word?  Spell check was no help at all!)  here is the December Blessings list:

 Joseph Smith
