Christmas has always been my favorite time of the year. I buy my Christmas presents all throughout the year, as I come across something that I believe that special person would like. That also takes the pressure off of trying to do this one month before Christmas! Then, I spend one or two evenings wrapping presents while watching Christmas movies. It’s such fun for me! Decorating the house brings great joy to me as well. Even now, in my early 50’s, I just delight in the feeling that I have during this magical time of the year. That’s why you will see Christmas themed picture quotes all month long! 🙂
I believe the reason I enjoy it so much is because, for me, it’s an outward expression of what I feel everyday… I would like to share two quotes about Christmas that articulate how I feel…
“Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas.” ~Calvin Coolidge
“Christmas, my child, is love in action. Every time we give, it’s Christmas.” ~Dale Evans
I wish you so much joy, peace, and love during this special time of the year. Take time to relax and enjoy a nice hot cup of coffee or tea, and as you do, take a minute to count the blessings in your life, because there are so many. Being here now, partaking in the beauty of the season, is definitely one of them.
With much love,
