Dear Friends of Another Voice,
My very best wishes for Christmas 2011 and the New Year 2012………
It will be quite a significant new year! I want to thank you as well for your comments and interest in Another Voice. Occasionally this past year I seriously thought about pulling the plug on my blog….Then someone sent a note…and I continued.
I am also a very strong supporter of ARCC: the Association for the Rights of Catholics in the Church…and hope in the coming year to be more supportive of their efforts.
There are now close to 500 people regularly checking Another Voice…..Modest. Still not bad. I have never been a numbers guy.
We all absolutely need our friends. They keep us going. This past year I said goodbye to some old friends who have passed on to the next life……I believe they are with me. Yet…I miss the twinkle in their eyes and the friendly chuckle and the occasional admonition.
