    Wonderful! Friday (Christmas Eve day) my daughter and son-in-law, their two children and their two grandchildren will be here. It is the first time since last Christmas that they have all been in my small house!
Merry Christmas! Happy New Year!

Matching boards

Friday, December 17, 2010

Went looking for one board to match the existing patern --not only did we find it the guy made us a a gift of it and we did NOT have to buy the whole bundel---Now that is Christmas!!!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Now and then it's good to pause in our pursuit of happiness and just be happy.

    Hi
That certainly is the spirit of Christmas in its truest form
I also like your last sentence. I think sometimes we are so focused on being something that as you say, we may already be there and I am referring to being happy.
Thank you for sharing.

COLD DAY

Friday, December 17, 2010

I was going to complain about how cold it is today---Then I recalled talking to my grand daughter as she was walking in NY in the freezing cold coming home from work.

I guess it wasn't all that cold after all. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Perspective is great isn't it? But that said, it is cold here too (KS). no snow but in the mid-teens. Was just writing on a team member's blog how cold I have been feeling since I lost some weight. But I didn't mind too much since I could layer up, use a space heater and drink lots of tea.

    It sure has been cold here in Central NY for some time now. Then we got hit with a foot or more of snow the past couple of days. Thankfully yesterday afternoon the snow stopped so snow removal could begin, but its snowing again this morning. Oh well, thats life here in NY...lol
hugs,

REFRAME--REFOCUS--THEN REACT--

" IF SOMEONE SHOWS YOU WHO THEY ARE---BELIEVE THEM!"

Hold on to number 5.

Now, to remember these words as I walk through the day.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~`
According to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, while both male and female reindeer grow antlers in the summer each year, male reindeer drop their antlers at the beginning of winter, usually late November to mid-December.

Female reindeer retain their antlers till after they give birth in the spring.

Therefore, according to EVERY historical rendition depicting Santa's reindeer, EVERY single one of them, from Rudolph to Blitzen, had to be a girl.

---I need to return to my old habits
1. At least a bag of frozen veggies a day
2. Drink water
3. Drink tea more
4. Meditate on peaceful water and all that is good
5. Talk to God when hitting the wall believe he can and will
6. Do not re write what my mate does to make it right--it is what it is
