I can't believe it's that time again, the last Sunday Musings of the year. Once again Musers would like to send their wishes and holidays thoughts to you:
Moments of contentment and companionship in a chaotic world.
I wish everyone a happy, blessed Christmas, Hanukkah, and New Year and extend the same heartfelt good wishes to those celebrating other holidays at this joyous time of year.
In a world that is more aware than ever, of differences, this holiday season, I'd ask everyone to look for the similarities between us. We may not always agree with other people's opinions, nor like their personalities, but if we look hard enough, there is always something that we share, that we can respect. So, whichever religious or secular festival we celebrate this December, let us forget our differences and remember our similarities, then let us celebrate those.
Thank you! Readers, and other supportive authors, you are deeply, deeply appreciated. I am grateful for everyone who enjoys a story now and then. Keep reading! Joyous Noel and a Fulfilling New Year to you.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I wish for all of you and yours, very happy and safe holidays this year. And for next year, I hope that everyone has the love, happiness, and well-being that everyone deserves. See you next year!
Wishing all our Muse readers, friends, and family a wonderful holiday season. May your days be filled with love and laughter, and your nights find you cuddled up with a great book!
May all your holidays and 2017 be bright with great reading.
Peace on Earth, Good Will Towards Men.
While the holiday season is a time for celebrating and enjoying traditions, it's also stressful and hectic. It's especially bittersweet for those missing loved ones, or facing challenges and uncertainties--my heart goes out to you.
So, here's my wish for you...slow down, hug often, speak your love (shout if they're hard of hearing), breathe slow and deep when "they" test your patience, cherish the ones you love (fur-babies included) and every chance you get, Wish Upon A Star (knowing it'll come true). Wishing you and yours a joyful, magical and safe holiday.
MJ LABEFF, New Mainstream author
This has been a spectacular year. I’m grateful and excited to be part of the Muse It Up Publishing family and wish everyone at MIU a joyous holiday season and best wishes for the new year. To my fellow authors around the world, may 2017 be a year that brings more story ideas than you have hours in the day to write, many new book releases and joy shared with family and friends. To all of the book lovers and readers, glorious, wonderful readers, who connect with us on social media, take time to write reviews and share our stories, keep on reading and may you and yours have a merry little holiday and a happy new year filled with peace, love, prosperity and great health.
Dear Reader, I wish you a memorable interval of DIFFERENCE.
If you have a daily commute, I hope you may stay at home for a couple of days - if you are the domestic goddess I hope you may be removed from the kitchen to a place of pampering with a MuseItUp book and a glass of something to your taste while Another cooks dinner - if you are a person much depended on by others I hope you may secure a worry free break while someone else takes that strain - if you're an underemployed senior I hope the below generation may allow you a little responsibility...
Whatever the DIFFERENCE is that would make your Holiday I hope you achieve it. Remember that old saying, 'A change is as good as a rest'.
My holiday message would be for peace. For the conflicts in the world to end. For people to find a way to live with each other and respect the others way of life, religion and opinions. I would love not to see the children in the world starving, or growing up with bombs exploding around them. Christmas is a time for peace. If one person could extend the hand of friendship to their enemy, then one small gesture may spread the word to others.
To all who support MuseItUp I would wish you a very Happy Christmas and all good wishes for 2017.
Dear reader, thank you again for joining us and we’d love to hear from you. Keep smiling and have a fun week. Never stop believing. See you next Sunday…nothing better than being cozy in bed with some Musings.
