Hallelujah, Everybody Say Cheese!

Life becomes religious whenever we make it so: when some new light is seen, when some deeper appreciation is felt, when some larger outlook is gained, when some nobler purpose is formed, when some task is well done.

For those of you who have followed this Midlife Jobhunter all year, I wish you a very happy holiday season. For those of you who have joined the ranks as a midlife jobhunter this past year, know you are not alone. Keep your feet moving, one in front of the other. Never give up and never give in.

Have some fun with a little Robert Earl Keen. My destination for New Year's Eve (DO FOLLOW THIS LINK AS IT IS MUCH MORE FUN THAN LOOKING AT PICTURES OF MY FAMILY - Merry Christmas from the Family. Enjoy.

Meanwhile, snapshots from the year (missing Jim and Frank - sorry!) My family. Special love to all of yours.

  9. Great post, Julie. I think you hit the delete button after the last word before the blank and it moves it up. I hope all your readers get to see them all. Maybe you could alert them at the beginning to keep on going. I almost missed it too except I kept looking for this place to leave a comment. I hadn't seen some of the pictures. I love the one of Jacob with his hand on Bill's knee and the delight on Bill's face amd the deer one. Love you.

  14. Now THAT was sweet, all of those faces. The way you have framed them here in your holiday wishes makes them feel like family. We all have family similar to the next in some ways.

    Happy Holidays! That boy of yours sure has a mischievious grin!
