My God, I can't believe how quickly the BIG DAY is
nearly upon us. I hope you didn't get too
wrapped up in the manic-ness of it all.
This Christmas I really wish for you:
* the joy of being able to really kick
back and enjoy the moment
*the joy of not worrying about perfection, but
instead knowing that it will all turn out
OK in the end (so what
if you forgot the cranberry sauce. That is not
what you will remember most in 5 years time ;-)
*the joy of no more to-do lists
*the joy of being with the ones that really matter
(not necessarily those you feel you have to be with ;-)
*the joy of seeing the happiness YOU give to others
*the joy of belly laughs, tears of happiness and
*the joy of making time to steal those kisses and cuddles
with your loved ones
* the joy of making fab memories that will
stay with you long after the wrapping has all been thrown
and your Instagram feed has moved on ;-)
* the joy of receiving (some of us find it difficult to
receive gifts, compliments, surprises……..anything.
Sometimes we areso focused on the giving,
that we forget it is OK to
accept and be pampered also.
*the joy of candle-lit lunches and dinners
(food always seems to taste better in candle-light).
*the joy of slushy Christmas films
*the joy of finding quiet moments to reflect and soak
it all in
*the joy of "no technology" days
Finally I would like to thank you for always
being at my side in this humble space I call
my blog. I am not a writer and sometimes
find it difficult to come up with anything of value.
So I appreciate every single one of you who make
time to visit. I know how "time-starved" we all are,
so it means even more to me to think I have people
even reading my ramblings ;-)
Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas and
nothing but the best for 2015.
Year by year it's all unclear, but day
by day we WILL find a way.
