Yule Be Blessed!

The bright red and green of this holly are live on the bush--not decking my halls--but they make me think of Christmas all the same.

We actually had our family Christmas celebration this past Saturday, a week ago today, which was the only day all five of my grown grandchildren could get together at the same time. It was a wonderful day! Tomorrow will be low key in comparison, but the Christmas spirit hasn't even begun to abandon me, so it will still be a time to reflect on the reason for the holiday and the joy of spending time with family and friends.

My Christmas wish for all of you, wherever you are, is that you get what you really, really want--and I don't mean something that's wrapped and put under the tree. What I do mean--what I think we all want for Christmas when it comes right down to it--is the joy of loving and being loved and the sense of fulfillment that comes along with that and grows so big it nearly bursts your heart.

Merry Christmas, everybody!



  1. A day late, but merry Christmas! It was a splendid day over here. Family, friends, babies, dogs, lots of great food. I'm glad you got to celebrate with your family, and a week early to boot! :-)

  2. Alison, I'm so glad your Christmas held all the magic you were afraid you were going to miss. It's all about the people, isn't it?
