December Words of the Month

posted December 3rd, 2018
So sorry to get the December Word of the Month up so very late. My mother had a heart attack so I made an emergency trip to British Columbia to be with her when she was in the hospital.

She is recuperating well, and now staying with my sister for a week or two until she is able to head home on her own once again. I find it difficult to balance spending time on the computer (and ignoring my family) with visiting. I feel guilty when I am on computer - and when I am not! Hope this makes sense!

Thank you to everyone who continues to contribute their suggestions each month. Your continued faithfulness to this challenge makes my job as host of this challenge a breeze!

For newer members, the word of the month is a great place to dip your toes into. This challenge is also a great place for older members who occasionally lose their mojo and need ideas or inspiration. It can be a great challenge for those who want to go that extra nine yards to do a full month of words. The choice is yours!

The tag for the month will continue in the same format as before, first three letters of the month, the year and then ‘words’ (dec18words).

Also, I am so sorry that I will not be able to do my usual photo to go with this month’s words, but, as I am using my sister’s computer, I am not familiar with her programs.

Feel free to do one word, a few, or all of them. They can be done in any order you choose, or on the suggested day. Pop in daily, or just on occasion. This is your challenge, and your project.

I am wishing each and everyone of you the Best of the Season. May we all experience the blessing of Peace On Earth and Good Will to Men this Holiday.

Until Next Year!
