The big day is finally here…Santa has been for the young ones…and the fur kids of course!

And everyone is gearing up for a day of eating, drinking and if you are lucky, lots of presents!

My husband, our two fur kids and I would like to wish all our family, friends and the wider Zinc Moon community a very Merry Christmas!

We hope you are able to enjoy today, and celebrate with lots of love and laughter.

We are also keeping my husband’s donor family in our hearts and thoughts today.

It is because of their decision to allow organ donation, that my husband is celebrating another Christmas, alive and healthy!

And if you are having to travel on this busy day, keep safe….especially those in the areas experiencing extreme heat and bush fire conditions.

I tried to find a different poem to the one I shared last year, but nothing came close…so here it is again for Christmas 2015…

My Christmas wish for you, my friend
Is not a simple one
For I wish you hope and joy and peace
Days filled with warmth and sun

I wish you love and friendship too
Throughout the coming year
Lots of laughter and happiness
To fill your world with cheer

May you count your blessings, one by one
And when totaled by the lot
May you find all you’ve been given
To be more than what you sought

May your journeys be short, your burdens light
May your spirit never grow old
May all your clouds have silver linings
And your rainbows pots of gold

I wish this all and so much more
May all your dreams come true
May you have a Merry Christmas friend
And a happy New Year, too ..
