Christmas Passed

Sweet and tender.
Laughter, then tears.
Joy, then sadness.
Dark into light,
light into dark.
Quiet and peaceful.
Gladness of heart.
Love is all you need.

See you next year!
Blessings of Love and Gladness of heart.

Oh, Christmas Tree

The boys cut down our Christmas Tree this year.
You can see how tall the ceiling in our family room is.
It allows for great height in a tree.
We need a ladder to decorate it with lights and our angel!
I changed things up a bit this year,
and decorated with a collection never displayed before.
Because it's a Christmas like no other.
Our little diamond girl is with her other family this year.
She's far away in the cold Northern lands of Michigan.
So, on Christmas Eve this tree goes up for you, Tiff.
Have yourself a Merry little Christmas!
Because after all, Christmas is truly about Love.
Merry Christmas to all...
With love and hugs,
 and dreams come true!

Winter's Solstice

I love the word "solstice". It reminds me of solitude. It feels calming and peaceful. And full of sunshine and dreams. It commands a pause in time. It's heavenly. It's fancy. It appears on our calendars twice a year. Today is our lucky day! Inch by inch the days will become brighter, the nights will become shorter. Before too long, the engines will rev up once more! On this Winter's Solstice I wish for you Peace. I wish for you Love. And most importantly, I wish for you Light. Blessings to all.

"There are two ways of spreading light;
to be the candle
or the mirror that reflects it."

What Is Life?

'It is a flash
of a firefly
in the night.
It is the breath
of a buffalo
in the wintertime.
It is the little shadow
which runs across the grass
and loses itself
in the sunlight.'
Native American Curator

be he king or peasant,
who finds peace in his home."

i hear
