"When my heart finds Christmas"

When my heart registers that Christmastime is in fact approaching I feel inside such release. Ah! At last, the time to spoil the ones I love the way I want and they cannot chide me or avoid me. All the items I have hidden away for months are wrapped and beribboned and presented with a grin.

It is such a treat for me to find something that suits a friend or family member - and surprises them as a bonus! I simply want them to see that I have paid attention to them and thought about them all year, whether we were together or not. I simply want them to see that they make my days sparkle whether it is January, June or December. This year, having begun to blog, I also hold in my heart people around the world - Canada, France, Belgium - and around the country.

This feeling recognizes no borders.

It is a sweet, sweet thought to know so many hearts will focus on the light of love in the world during this season. The miracle is ours. Let's take it and spread it - every day.

Blessings of peace and joy to all of you.

Don't you look festive in that hat! Cute too! Have a merry Christmas. Will you be going to VA?

Aren't you the gentleman! Thank you. I hope your Christmas was merry and bright.

We stayed here, brought the boys to us, and treated them to the exhibit of the Chinese terracotta warriors at the High Museum.

I look forward to your '09 posts! Happy New Year.
