Hello Everyone! It's been a long time since I have been here and actually typed a word. Maybe the best way is to get started is to start from the beginning.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and looking forward to Christmas. From the time I was a child, I have always believed magical things can happen at Christmas time - it is a time for miracles. My hope for each and everyone reading will have a safe and healthy Christmas, a time full of joy, and a time spent making wonderful memories with friends and family.

I will be posting more, even if I don't feel like thinking or writing.:) Thanks to all of you who have hung around. I have missed each one! xoxox  

Begin at the beginning and go on till you come to the end; then stop. ~Lewis Carrol, Alice in Wonderland

Oh, my GOSH!

I'm sooo glad to see that you're posting again! Even if it's only once in a while, I think that it's good for you to be blogging. And I KNOW that it's good for your Followers because (if I may be so bold and presumptuous enough to speak for everyone) I'm sure that we've ALL been missing you terribly!

I don't know if you saw my response to the comment you left, when you dropped by my circus a little while back? I was thrilled to hear from you because I had been thinking about you quite a lot! I had even tried to send you an email through your Blogger profile, but I don't think you got it. Or did you?

Anyway, you are so right about beginnings. I say we focus on the New Year ahead. It's a clean slate, full of all sorts of possibilities (and opportunity to make anything possible)! Cheesy, I know. But it IS true.

"Let's all raise our glass... Here's to Sixpence and happy NEW beginnings!"

Anthony! You are such a sweetheart! Gosh, I think I love you.:) You have no idea what your lovely comment means to me. And no, I did not get your email. I need to check and see which email address I have listed on here, can't remember. Neither did I check back on your blog after I left a comment, but I will. I may do it tomorrow since I just stopped at my computer to turn it off before going to bed at 4:01 a.m and saw your comment. I wanted to leave a quick one back to you before turning in. I have much catching up to do with all you wonderful people here. I have missed you very much! Btw, nothing you say is ever cheesy! Your words are always wise and thought provoking and I love reading what you have to say. I will check on the email when I get up in just a few short hours.:) I'll also write you today. Thanks so much for lifting my spirits! I agree with you, it's a new year just around the corner - so many new possibilities. Here's to happy NEW beginnings... and all of us.

Again, THANK YOU! xoxo


Oh my goodness gracious!!!
I'm so happy that you are back posting...
we've missed you so much darling! Cheers to an exciting new beginnings~

welcome again sixpence - moving into the background to find your energy, to heal from all that you have had to deal with in past year . . . well i get that. oh yes i do. in the past year i too have said goodbye forever to my dad, my mother in law, my sister in law, my uncle eric, aunt helen, and to cap it all (i hope) my mum's dog!
being in the company of good people makes a world of difference. it allows for you to celebrate your existence and to be celebrated for the good person that you are. so have a blast here sixpence. puppy pics please!!! steven

Welcome welcome back! So nice to see you here again! So so nice! I may not always be very creative with my comments, but I love reading your posts!

Lenore, It's great to see you have left your footprint. I have missed you! Hope the Universe is taking good care of you! I'll get to your blog and try to do some catching up. I am glad to feel the blogging bug once again. Much love xoxox

Steven, My goodness, my heart goes out to you. It sounds like you have experience so much of the same. I am so sorry! Those permanent goodbyes are so painful! It just feels wrong to me on all levels, saying goodbye and knowing you will never hear that voice again, the sure presence of your parent(s), the opportunity to say I love you to one or both of them ever again - it just can't be right. Saying goodbye to those we love is a part of life that cannot be escaped, as much as I'd like to. I appreciate your kindness very much, it means a lot to me. Thank you so much! I'll get some new pics of the puppies; they are the sweetest, most lovable little bundles ever. xoxo

Poppy, of course I remember you. I'll come by for a visit so I can see your Amaryllis. I don't do so well with raising flowers indoors. Thank you for stopping by. xoxo

Slices, it is such joy to find you have visited. I'll be here and I'll be checking in on you.:) xoxo

Hi Des! How nice to see you. Thank you for the holiday wishes. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas. I'll be by to see you. xoxo

Minka, your comments are always creative. I love reading your comments and your blog, love the photos you share with us. I'll be around and be checking in on you. Happy Holidays! xoxo

Hi Sixpence,

How wonderful to see you back blogging. You have been missed here.
Wishing you the very best and happy Christmas and may 2010 be a great year for you.


ps. I wonder how your Dog and puppies are?

Linda Sue said...

Just catching up- Portia and babies nearly gave me diabetes they are SOOOO sweet! I forced my dog to look at the pictures with me but he wasn't interested- too bad there has not yet been developed - smellobloggisphere. Love!

Sixpence and a Blue Moon said...

Hi Carolyn, I appreciate the 'welcome back", it feels good. And thanks for stopping by. Hope you have a wonderful Holiday and all the best to you for 2010. xoxo

Linda, how sweet is that comment. I tell ya, they are the sweetest things ever. I hate to tell Marelli about this but, he is going to have to get the unthinkable done. I cannot go through this again. I don't know how dog breeders do it, cause I fall in love with them instantly. If only I had a larger house.:) Yeah, we are all in trouble when they figure out how to develop smellbloggisphere. :)
