Three Muses: Comfort and Joy

Comfort and much Joy!
To be able to write a few words about this time of the year when we all are looking forward to the New Year and reflecting on the 'old'... I am writing this note to let you know that the 'comfort and joy' that I experience is with my dear husband, Robert.
We were married when we were 'about 3' and in April 2011 we will have been married for 48 years.
During that time we have produced 4 fabulous children, whom, I might add, are older than us now.... 7 absolutely beautiful Grandchildren some are just about to enter the big world of 'working'!
Admittedly, there have been some very tough times, some very sad times, some times that we have put in the 'too hard basket' and just got on with it... but all in all the times that we are sharing now are the best times in our 'young lives'!
A lot of travel, a lot of sitting and having cups of tea, a lot of 'new love' that has been generated by the fact that we have been together for so long and no need to question each other... such a beautiful time that we are able to stroll on the beach, when ever we can get there, that is... and just be at one with ourselves.
"Great tidings of comfort and joy"
Sending this early, as we are off to visit family for Christmas.
May you and yours have a very happy family time together and may 2011 bring all your dreams true.
Thanks for a fabulous year of 'creating'...I am looking forward to even more excitement in 2011.
My fondest wishes to you all,
Glenys

Glenys, thankyou so much for taking the time to share your reminiscences in this Christmas season. You are fortunate indeed to have had such a long and happy partnership and a wonderful family. I am guessing you have some fantastic get-togethers at this time of year. Your picture and the added text of the carol are simply beautiful. I love how your mind works - always just slightly out of the box.
May I wish you and yours a peaceful and happy Christmas. Mine will be HOT here in Perth (38 deg forecast on the big day).
