It's A Special Day....

In quiet moments when you think about it, you recognize what is critically important
in life and what isn't.  Be wise and don't let the good things crowd out those that are essential....

Someone somewhere today will be happy it is Christmas time after all.

Arvid and I have finished with our Christmas wrapping now for over a week.  
All presents are ready to be delivered and some.  Feeling excited.

For many the Holidays hold some sadness.  
My former sister-in-law Carol Riley expressed it this way:

"I'm feeling a bit melancholy and I'm sure I'm not alone ~~ tends to happen this time of the 
year to many of us ~~~  So I was wondering if we could just take one minute ~ 60 seconds
 of this busy ~ hectic season and think about all the people we have in our lives that 
love us ~~ the ones that are with us and the ones who are not ~~ Just be "still" ~ 
give yourself this one minute to reflect on this most important gift of all ~~~~ 
love ~~~~~~ Merry Christmas" 

The greatest self is a peaceful smile, that always see the world smiling back.

Each day offers us the gift of being a special occasion if we can simply learn that 
as well as giving, it is blessed to receive with grace and a grateful heart...
