Monday December 23rd ~

Let gratitude be the pillow upon which you kneel 
to say your nightly prayer.  Let faith be the bridge you 
build to overcome evil and welcome  good...

You can feel the excitement in the air.  At least I can. 
 Tomorrow we will be going to spend Christmas Eve and 
Christmas Day with family.  My sister Nina and family live 
in Tampa and that;s where we are headed.  Can't wait.

We did a few last minute mall browsing over the 
weekend, and of course we never missed a chance to
 toast to the closing.  Of course now Arvid and I are
 already restless.  We need something to do.

Lots of last minute preparations happening today.
  People are shopping and shopping.  Sometimes I wonder 
if we have all forgotten the true meaning of Christmas.
That being said, it's a beautiful time of the year.  

Happy faces everywhere.  I just love to see the little
 kids all excited waiting to take there pictures with
 Santa Claus.  Childhood what a beautiful time.

Monday a new and festive week begins.  Wishing 
everyone the best of times today and always.

Be present in all things and thankful 
for all things.  In three words I can sum up 
everything I learned about life.  It goes on...
