I wish I had money to buy gifts for all the people who touch my life in the course of a year.
But if I did, you would be calling me Oprah instead of Carolyn, because those people are legion.
Each year I write a Christmas letter to the family and friends I communicate with less than I should and this year as I thought of a summation, I knew what it had to be:
"Except for a few minor things, I am very, very happy."
And when I think about those minor things that trouble me, I realize how blessed I am.
