Holiday in Winter

Being Blessed with all the necessities in life is a marvelous thing. Just stopping to count your blessings and ponder on the good things you’ve been blessed with, is such a good feeling. I guess they are right. A positive mind and attitude can make everything better. Counting your blessings really does help.  Thinking on the good things and putting off the negative thoughts can really relieve stress and make your day go better. As they say, you can either rule the day or let the day rule you. (something like that). I guess December kind of makes you do that. With all the goodwill towards men and the Christmas spirit at this time of year. I just wish this would go on throughout the rest of the year. Wouldn’t that be great?


I’m going shopping today and I’m going to get some Holiday Candies and goodies. Some of the things out there aren’t available at any other time of year, so it makes it fun to get these things and put some back for another day, later on.

So many Christmas shows to watch this month. I like Scrooge movies and it’s a wonderful life too. Ones that make you think about your life, others lives, and what it means to be thankful. These are some of the best classics out there.


Short Christmas Poems

Then peeled the bells more loud and deep: “God is not dead; nor doth he sleep! The Wrong shall fail, The Right prevail, With peace on earth, good-will to men!” 
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow 

May the best gifts of Christmas be yours:
The gift of love.
The gift of hope.
The gift of joy.
The gift of peace.
The gift of happiness.
The gift of Jesus! 
Kate Summers 

Christmas brings a world peace
For all to wonder and fighting does cease.
A miracle it seems, impossible to achieve
But nothing is impossible for those who believe
Catherine Pulsifer
