Today no ordinary post, but the Fancy Friday linkup party is open! I just wanted to wish you all a very Merry Christmas 2020!
And I just wanted to thank my readers, followers, blog friends, for reading, sharing, and commenting on my blog. I am deeply grateful to you for that. Because this blog is not just a hobby for me. It is my passion. And without you it is nothing.
Merry Christmas 2020 dear friends
I hope you all have a cozy, warm, Merry Christmas despite this terribly weird and unpleasant year. Let’s take a moment to think about everything we still have. Our partners, family and friends. But of course there are so many people who have lost a loved one because of Corona. Or for another cause.
Maybe there are people who are going through a very rough time right now. Let us pause for a moment and hope from the bottom of our hearts that better times will soon come for these people. I hope many of you can still be with family, albeit limited. And be grateful. In any case, I am very grateful. Grateful for so many things.
I always have a soft spot for the homeless. I hate to see how these people live. There is almost always so much suffering behind these humans. I am not a believer, but I pray, especially at this time, for these people. They also want affection, a kind word, to be treated as human beings. Let’s have a little more understanding and consideration for this group.
How our Christmas 2020 will look like
Today my parents-in-law will drop by and tomorrow we will visit my father and his wife. Keeping distance of course. Normally Gerben and I always buy gifts for each other and they lay for days under tree, tempting me to feel them and guess what was inside. This year we only bought two gifts for each other that we also selected ourselves. This is because we did not want to go to shops. There is at least a book for each of us! Tonight the two of us are going to cook extensively. Furthermore, the two of us will enjoy these days together and look forward to 2021 coming and things will be better!
Merry Christmas 2020!

I’ve taken this week off (and maybe next) from blog writing – but not blog reading. I share your concern for the homeless. With our less extreme winter temperatures, we have a fairly large number of homeless in our area. With our limited safety net, so many people fall through the cracks. It is sad, and imo, unnecessary.
We have been spending time with my mom, and we will be there tomorrow. I am lucky; I have a really cool mom.
Happy holidays to you and Gerben!
Thanks Michelle! I hope you had a great time with your mom!
How lovely to have a Christmas linkup. So many difficulties this year all over the world. My heart goes out to so many. My own son and his family have been flooded although not as badly as many others, and of course we are pretty much in close lockdown from tomorrow. But helping others continues for our selfless frontline people and my love and thanks go out to them all.
Enjoy your special time together and yes we will all pray for a Happier and Healthier Year in 2021.
with love to you both
Thank you very much Pamela! I appreciate your words a lot!
Merry Christmas, Nancy! I am right with you on all of this. There are so many who have suffered so much this past year that I must keep my perspective of gratitude while offering what I can to others. It is mind blowing how many additional people have become homeless this past year. People need to be helping people all year long. I hope you and Gerben have a wonderful holiday together with your limited family interaction. Sometimes less is more anymore!
Yes indeed, about the homeless. It’s worrying if it wasn’t already!
Merry Christmas and all the best! You look lovely and your Christmas tree is very pretty.
Thank you very much Ivana!
Christmas might be a bit different this year, but we can still enjoy it if we count our blessings and be thankful for the things we’ve got and the people – and pets! – we have in our lives. So many people are so much worse off, have lost loved ones or are indeed missing the comfort of a cozy home. My blog is my passion too, and my blogging friends do mean the world to me. I do hope that one day, when the pandemic is over, we get to meet in person, Nancy. Wouldn’t that be something to look forward to? I hope you and Gerben have a most wonderful Christmas time! Hugs xxx
Oh it would Ann! Preferably in the UK!!!
Thank you for the linkup! And happy holidays!

Merry belated Christmas Nancy! I hope you and Gerben had a great one. I hear you on these issues. This time of year is especially hard and I hope that next year will be better.

Thanks Maureen! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas with your family!
A big Merry Christmas to you, Nancy! Thank you for all the fun posts, and link-ups, and for introducing me to so many new people in the wide world of blogging. I’ve also loved getting to know you a bit better this year. All the best to you and Gerben and your extended family and friends, and a big virtual hug to you, my dear friend.
Oh thank you very much dear Sheila! Those words mean the world to me. I also loved to get to know you better, you are such a fun and interesting woman! I hope we can be blogging friends for many more years!
Happy Christmas holidays dear Nancy! Blessings of joy, peace and hope!
We had a lovely Christmas Eve with our family.
It is always so tragic that people do die and suffer various difficulties in life. Sadly, there is no cure for death, which we all will go through. My faith in God who loves us with an everlasting love is what gets me through. Christmas is about the greatest GIFT to all people.
Thank you for your friendship! Blogging makes it possible to make friends with people from around the world which we would not have met otherwise.
Let’s make the world a better place with compassion.
Indeed Carmen, let’s do that! Let’s think more about the less fortuned ones!
Thank you, Nancy, for hosting your weekly linkups and enabling all of us to find and read new blogs! I appreciate you! Hope you had a wonderful Christmas.
I hope you are having a great week so far!

Thank you very much Amber, that makes me smile!
Belated Merry Christmas to you and your family! I hope you had a wonderful time.
Thanks! We had a great time!
You’re right to highlight people who are a lot less fortunate than us. Yes it was sad not to have family round for Christmas but it’s only one year (hopefully!) and for a lot of people loneliness is a way of life. Thanks for all the link ups this year!
Indeed, that is a good one! For a lot of people it’s a way of life! Said enough.
I haven’t taken the time to uploab by blog to link ups during the break but still reading! Enjoying the time on my hands to relax! Have a great New Year!
That’s great! Just enjoy Mireille! Have a great New Years Eve!
Thank you for linking up with us for 20 from 2020. Wasn’t this an odd Christmas? We don’t usually buy Christmas presents for each other but did this year. And I am glad we did since it was just the two of us. We watched the grandbabies open presents on Facetime and then we opened our presents by ourselves and enjoyed a quiet dinner that we prepared together.
Now that sounds very good! It was a odd one but hopefully we can celebrate it this year with family again!
