Merry Christmas....

to all! Christmas just rolls around so fast. We got this message in one of our Christmas cards. It's very shareable and I find it's very true, too.

"The older I get....
       the simpler my holiday preparations become,
       the closer I feel to old friends as I write Christmas cards,
       the more I cherish the oldest ornaments,
       the more fondly I remember Christmases past,
       the longer I hold onto a Christmas hug,
       the more I realize that Christmas is a matter of the heart,
       the more I enjoy giving than receiving,
       the more I try to see Christmas through the eyes of a child,
       the longer I sit at night in the glow of the Christmas tree,
       the more wondrously beautiful the Christmas story is,
       the deeper my awe at God's infinite love,
       the more I love Christmas!

It's been a really nice day with about 4" of fresh new snow, and mild 20 degrees which made it just right for trying out the snowblower for it's first official outing of the year. That and a fresh batch of homemade donuts and the warmth of the fire .... a lazy afternoon it is!
