“I will honour Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year. I will live in the Past, the Present, and the Future. The Spirits of all Three shall strive within me. I will not shut out the lessons that they teach!”
What a year it has been here on Swirl & Thread.
I have laughed….
I have cried….
I have imagined…
I have walked in some wonderful places, with some incredible people….
I’m not very good at recapping on my life in general, but what I wish to say here today is …
To all those whose words I have been lucky enough to read in 2017…I thank you!
To all those whose words I did not get the opportunity to read, I am so very sorry. As a blogger I will always do my best to fulfill commitments and promises made, but sometime life throws a few curve-balls and all the best of intentions go out the window!! I will get to read your books in due course, so do please be patient with me.
I would like to thank all the writers who contributed to my weekly Irish Writers Wednesday Feature. It has been an honour and a pleasure having you on my blog. This is a feature I do hope to continue in 2018.
To all the publishers, thank you for trusting me to look after your writers words. Each package that comes in my door brings with it a fresh excitement that never wears thin.
And to all you bloggers who, although I have never met you, I now proudly consider my friends. Never have I encountered such a supportive, welcome and extremely funny bunch of people. You all brighten my days with your banter and warm wishes. Bloggers really do rock!!
And finally, but definitely not least, to all of you who take the time to read and share my posts. It’s such a privilege to be in this position and it’s one I never take for granted. I’m not a writer but I do always try to express myself in an interesting manner, so really thank you all so much and I do hope you have enjoyed my ramblings.
I’m taking a wee break from the blog for a couple of weeks so I’ll see you all back here in 2018 with lots more bookish posts!! (P.S. You should see the books I have in my tbr pile to be published early in the New Year…..eeeek!!)
I wish you all a Very Happy Christmas with Best Wishes for the Year ahead…
Nollaig shona dhaoibh!!!
