GOOD MORNING !
I’m really trying to get the Christmas Spirit rolling here. Yesterday was a long tiring one and I even had to work over as the boss had to go out on business.
I put up my tiny little pre-lit tree yesterday evening and so now I have my tree and my Advent wreath out. I still haven’t found the cards, but I won’t give up yet, as there is time to get them all out.
I have a friend (who doesn’t read my journal) that is a grump when it comes to Christmas. She is a bah-humbug type of person and although she will joke about it does very little in the way of celebrating Christmas. I make her play Christmas songs on our dulcimers starting in October. We only meet once a month so that’s only 3 times we get to play them before Christmas is over. Well anyway she called yesterday saying how she’s not participating in the office Christmas party where she works. I told her one of these days I’m going to wear her down and she’ll love it.
I can only hope!
I cannot for the like of me figure out what there is not to celebrate about Christmas.
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
As we struggle with shopping lists and invitations, compounded by December's bad weather, it is good to be reminded that there are people in our lives who are worth this aggravation, and people to whom we are worth the same.

Love so easily understands
What you can see is the smallest part;
You don't need Christmas in your hands
When you have Christmas in your heart
