Counting Down The Days.....


How long does it take for Christmas to arrive to your house?
Does it show up at the door on the 24th, late at night, after the wee-ones have finally dozed....or does it come blowing in on the 25th in gust of sweeping abundance of packages and festive offerings.....or, does it happen slowly, one day at a time for thirty one days.
At our house, it's a celebration of the event every day through the month of December and beyond...
The season is a time to be thankful, to be joyful, and to be generous.
I know we hear a lot about having the spirit all through the year-I am a big promoter of this thought- but, Christmas is about celebrating something very special, in a very special way. Gift giving was and should be a big part of this celebration, simple and from the heart or over the wall expensive, I really don't think it matters as long as it is given and recieved with a joyful heart.
My joy comes from giving to those I love and having them understand the gift is in celebration of a blessing that was given to us all thousands of years ago.
I love you and so I wish to give you this gift.....it really is pretty simple.

This post reminded me to take a moment. So we ventured out last night to admire the lit-up homes and frosted front lawns. Sending White Christmas Wishes your way!
