Hearty thanks to our Permission Slips readers for your support over this past year. We are happy that we have been able to touch your lives through our posts. Your feedback — through comments on our site, on Facebook, in emails and during “live” conversations — has impacted our lives, too. To those of you readers who are personal friends and family, I am very grateful for all that you have done for me and my loved ones during the past year’s ups and downs. Enjoy your time together today, and stay safe during the Black Friday sales tomorrow.
