December Mix Winner.

Friends, I've had a rough week and a half. I've been pretty sick with a nasty case of strep throat. Today though, I think I can finally see a light at the end of this dark tunnel. I've been on the antibiotics for three days solid now and this morning I didn't feel like death, so that means I must be getting better. Today the trick will be trying not to do TOO much. I have to remember to rest and take it easy or tomorrow may find me back in bed all day.

Luckily, I have an amazing husband and wonderful children who have mostly fended for themselves. And I have a couple of good friends who brought in dinner, and my wonderful mother  and mother-in-law helped me out as well. I am grateful for such special people in my life.

Throughout this sickness, I've been lucky enough to read your kind comments on the December mix and they helped cheer me up along the way. Thank you!!

I used random.org to help me pick this month's mix winner...

#4 - Rae, who said "what an incredible mix. my husband used to work retail, so I have to find Christmas music that wasn't played on a 45 minute repeat at the mall. you've totally helped me out!"

I hear ya Rae. I've been listening to our local Christmas radio station here and there, and it is pretty sad actually. Not only do they play the same 14 songs over and over, they also play this ridiculous song that mimics The 12 Days of Christmas but instead sings about the 12 pains of Christmas. Pathetic! Aren't we supposed to be celebrating Christmas and all that is wonderful about it? This is my favorite time of year and I wish everyone, everywhere could feel the Joy of the Season and remember the Reason.

As a special gift to you, my readers, I am also adding my favorite Vintage Christmas Music playlist to the sidebar. It's called Christmas Cheer and it always cheers me up. 

I hope that you enjoy it!
