Well, here we are, the first day of December has arrived! No more procrastinating, thinking the holidays are in the far off distance ~ it is time to make our shopping list, plan a party or two and get into the spirit of the season. It is time to create within ourselves the ability to once again ~ see the beauty ~ the beauty in the decor, the beauty in the meals so lovingly prepared, the beauty in the generosity of sharing & giving and the beauty of the truest meaning of Christmas!
Rather than be filled with dread at the thought of the looming “To Do” list – I hope to settle into this month and only anticipate the goodness, taking one day at a time and savouring every bit of it. At this very moment though I can tell that I am trying to convince myself, talking the brave talk….like chatting with girlfriends ~ a bit of self talk therapy?
To remind myself that it will all get done and that it can be done simply, I chose a few photos from last Christmas….
And ~ I hope that we all find….
I wish us all good luck completing our lists and finding joy in the process! Bye for now….
