Holiday Letter Part II

Posted by on Dec 28, 2010 in Uncategorized | 15 Comments

As you know, MY HOLIDAY LETTER  is a report card, of sorts, a means by which I debrief myself on my past year.  In it I try to sort out what I did well and where I went wrong. But this year I want to talk about you guys too. So here it is



At first, I was going to do specific shout outs.  But I realized that I would most certainly forget somebody and the last thing I want to do is make anyone feel left out.  So what I am going to do is  a general OCM Holiday Letter.

Many of you display a number of the same wonderful traits

so if you recognize yourself in what I say

Yep, it’s you!

First, I would like to celebrate your friendship, not just to me, but to one another as well.  You have come together like family and supported one another in times of struggle with everything from words of encouragement to economic support to cards and letters.  That kind of generosity is what’s best about this world.

Others of you have persevered in the face of huge obstacles.  Some have, time and time again, complied with Rule No. 5 No Matter What you Kept Coming . . .

Some of you have tolerated people in your lives that have been less than kind, came here to share your irritation but responded with patience and kindness with those who gave you far less than that.  What grace you have shown.

Some of you have been out in the world, learned a tough lesson, came here to tell about it and began to change for the better.  What courage you have shown.

Some of you are just plain kind.  To animals and lost children a like.

Others of you, in fact all of you, have allowed me, a woman who has so much, to come here and share my fears and upsets without judgment, recognizing that I too am human and struggle.  You showed no jealousy . . . just love.

You have defended me when attacked like I was your own kid.

You have given me and each other great advice.

Many of you have showed wisdom beyond your years.  Young people who have it together make my day. Several of you have done that for me over and over again.

You have, on occasion, taken something I have said or done  or followed a rule in my book, used it and then made the time to come back  here and tell us how it worked out.

You have made me feel good about what I do even when I don’t do it so well. You  tell me how much you appreciate my writing.  That always makes me feel great.

We have taken care to disagree with courtesy and when we have been less than successful with that we truly make an effort to get things straight.

And at the end of the day you keep coming back.  Participating in this little virtual community with care, concern and consistency. Gotta love that.

Most definitely love you guys.

    HI YALL, IT’S COLD HERE IN LIVERPOOL, but I won’t complain, won’t change anything! Judgelynn, excellent letter as always, this blog is healthy, if no place else I can come here and get relief.

    You give the most wonderful advice, and it works itself out if the directions are followed, some of the things you say is hilarious, and priceless
    I’v had an excellent year, and it’s winding down, but I will remeber 2010 for years to come.

    Judgelynn, you are an exceptional woman and person, I’m so blessed to have meet you, and than continue to blog you and meet some of the best people on the planet.

    You all have a blessed, healthy,joyous and bountiful New Year.

    Peace ya’ll,
    I’m out.

    Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwww this is soooo sweet. Again, the fact that you took time to write this shows just how much you care. This definitely came from the heart. Everything mentioned is so true. We are indeed family…where there is family, there is love.
    Judge Lynn, I have lost track of your blogging years. You are consistent in what you do and we can never repay you. All that’s left is for us to finally meet you!

    May God continue to bless you and your family in every aspect of life there is. <3

    Ms. Ruthie, you and those animals, with your skills and loving care for the animal kingdom, you need a farm, so that you can remain in your element, the animals and animal would love you for that, just as we do.

    Ruthie, I meant to say the animals and the animal lovers would love you for that, just as we do. People tell me all the time that I’m nice, it’ just a apart of who i am, nothing special, just being me.

    I love this! Its such a beautiful thing when we can all learn from and appreciate each other. Thanks JLT for creating a space where we can do just that!
    I love you guys. Cheers to learning from 2010 and applying that knowledge to 2011 for a kicka** year : )

    What a nice letter JL. Thanks for including us in it.

    Here you go AGAIN!!!!

    Please stop making me tear up Judge Lynn!
    You know, I’ve shared some things with you guys I’ve never told my personal friends. Sometimes it’s easier. It’s been hard for me to express myself when you’ve been told to “shut-up” all your life but I feel comfortable here thanks to this awesome crew and you Judge Lynn. That’s a major accomplishment for me. Judge Lynn we wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for YOU!!! This is the 1st and only place I’ve ever blogged (not counting FB post). I don’t care what others say about us kissing up to you and being followers. I’d rather be following someone who has some good sense and a good heart. Hopefully I don’t start another riot.:-) But if admiring you is wrong… then I don’t wanna be right!!!

    Thanks family!!!
    Love ya’ll

    Hey Yall, a day late , but never short here.

    JL that was very very nice of you, and so true ,we have become a little family of sorts.

    Sistah Shadeisha is right all that is left is that we meet you, so imma wait on that and be patient.

    I have said before and will say again , you are truly special to come here with us, just because. We luv you for free for that!

    We for sure got your back JL as much as we can here on the blog, i think back to when we had to see folks about coming here with the negative, noooo! we cant have that.

    I dont do resolutions either JL , but like you i try and get better, with some things i will never get well with just better and thats alright too.

    I posted on FB the WII Fit i got for Xmas said i was Obese ! there is work to be done people. LMAO!

    I want personally thank you all for being here too. THANK YOU!

    Have a wonderful and prosperous NEW YEAR Family.!

    Peace & BLessings
