Merry Christmas to my friends and faithful followers. May your day be full of joy and laughter.
Christmas Eve brought a lovely blanket of snow to dress up the outdoors for the holiday.
This kind of snowfall adds such elegance to the landscape and allows us to see again, differently, what we take for granted at other times.
We pause, and maybe even stop for a moment, to admire the beauty before we rush on to our busy life.
The bright white of the snow makes other color even more spectacular.
Berries that went unnoticed yesterday are popping out beneath the brilliant green to wish us a Holly, jolly Christmas.
So, if you “escaped” to a warmer climate for the holidays, just remember, a white Christmas has it’s own magic.
Some of you may be a little behind in the preparations, like I am. My advice is not to worry. Just take some time to enjoy the day.
Take a walk like I did early this morning and let the beauty of the day surround you.
The hustle and the bustle is all part of the day, and someone does have to cook. But sneak a little time out for something unexpected that is just for fun.
Enjoy where you are and who you’re with.
I hope there is something special under the tree with your name on it.
Whatever you unwrap today, may it bring a smile of gratitude to your face and love in your heart for the giver of the gift.
Reflect on the memories. I will be thinking of family and friends who are not with me today.
So get the Scrooge out and the Ho, ho, ho in.
May Santa find you where ever you are.
May your day be filled to the brim with only good times.
And may your Christmas Day be “just right.”
Don’t over do it at the buffet table.
Rest in between festivities.
Create some new memories.
Come back soon to see what is in store for the NEW YEAR.
