Sunday Wishes

Sunday, December 22, 2013

The Chicago area has been covered in a pretty layer of snow this morning. I took my walking buddy (yellow lab) for our one-mile walk this morning. It was so pretty and peaceful. It made me feel slightly like a little kid looking forward to Christmas.

I thought of the final scene in the move A Christmas Story.. Ralphie and Randi are in bed, the Parkers sat in the living room, lit only by the Christmas tree lights, looking out the window at the snow falling as Deck the Halls plays. I love that final moment in the movie!

Today is our wedding anniversary. This time seven years ago, DH, my kids and I were walking around Duval Street in Key West shopping for clothes to wear for our 5pm ceremony that evening on the beach. It was a beautiful, magical time. I still look at him and get those goosebumps!

To those of you that celebrate, I hope you have a warm and wonderful Christmas. To those that do not, I hope you find many reasons to smile and feel loved over the next few days and beyond!

Let's get moving... shake up the happiness. I leave you with the song of the day....

Wake up the happiness
Shake up the happiness
It's Christmas time:

    I always thought a Christmas wedding would be lovely. Instead I got married on Friday the 13th (in November!)

There is much hope and happiness in the Christmas season! Shake it up and share it, indeed!

    Here in Springfield we got rain, frozen sheets of ice covering our car, it was not easy chiseling my door to open (The windows had to melt using the defroster and the roads were ice-not safe to walk on. But I had to spend all day fixing my computer so I missed most of it. Today it is sunny and I can feel that Christmas will be great.

    It was 71 degrees at 1:00 Am in the ATL. That is the predicted high and low. I do not anticipate any snow today. In true ATL fashion they are predicting 28 degrees Tuesday morning!

Make Today the Greatest Day of Your Life

emoticon Until Tomorrow!
